With an abundance of adventures from small quaint coastal towns, forest & mountain retreats to the bustling cities there are endless possibilities in California. We are about to share the hidden gems of the Malibu, Cali coastline.
Words cannot express the natural splendor to Malibu’s coastline. There is a laid back lifestyle with a true beachy vibe to experience while visiting the Malibu coastline. From famous instagrammer’s beach stop offs to impeccable restaurant choices, this is one place to gather with your lady friends for a weekend getaway.
EL MATADOR STATE BEACH
The 150 feet staircase that descends from the bluffs to El Matador State Beach provides a glimpse of the beautiful beachfront. Once on the sand, seek out the sea arch, incredible rock formations that you can walk beneath and play in the coastal caves. Sunsets are amazing both from the beach while listening to the waves crash in and from high on the bluffs south of the arch. Make sure to bring some appetizers and a bottle of wine to take the full experience in.
POINT DUME STATE BEACH
This dramatic landscape has been featured in many iconic films for its cliffs, rocks formations, and stunning waters. Spending time on the beach with the ladies is the best place in Malibu for gray whale watching, and on a clear day a glimpse of Catalina Island in the distance.
LEO CARRILLO STATE PARK
Next to El Matador State Beach, the tide pools and sea caves at Leo Carrillo State Park is where you can discover starfish and an abundance of sea life. The beach is framed by cliffs on either side with waves crashing the rocks. This is an amazing place to do some exploration. You may come across seals, hermit crabs and other marine life as you stroll the coastline. Make sure you have water shoes to keep your feet protected.
