Malibu is famous for it’s blue skies, white beaches and big, beautiful houses. Just like Beverly Hills, a lot of famous people live in this city. Richard Gere, Barbara Streisand, Robert Redford, Mel Gibson and Sting are a few examples. Malibu has the most beautiful beaches on the California coast. Together, the beaches are 34 kilometres long and surfers and locals call it ‘the Bu’. It’s easy to forget you’re so close to big city Los Angeles when Malibu seems so peaceful.
If you want to get around with an RV on this west coast trip, you can rent one on your way from Los Angeles at Road Bear. After you picked a nice one, make your way to Malibu and overnight at the popular Malibu Beach RV Park, where a terrific ocean view stretches out for you. You will probably see some dolphins swimming in the ocean and hummingbirds everywhere in the flowers. Try to take a picture of a hummingbird! Their wing beat is 15 to 80 times per second, which is why they’re the only birds that can fly backwards and linger in the air for a few seconds.
The most beautiful beach in Malibu is Zuma Beach. It’s the perfect beach to relax on all day and you can play volleyball for some exercise. If you would rather watch some experienced surfing, Malibu’s Surfrider Beach is the place to be. Give it a try yourself and hire a board at the Malibu Surf Shack. Another option is to hike one of the many trails, like the Escondido Trail that starts at the end of Winding Way.
