    The Villa has expanded over the decades with a larger outdoor eating and sitting area. Exhibits, presentation, architectual spaces and the gardens are well worth a visit which one must book ahead.

    We stopped for an hour before dinner based on other reviews. $3 per hour parking or $10 for the day. Not very much parking. Loved the views with the rock formations, must be a wedding picture spot as two brides/grooms were there taking pictures. It is a few steps to get down to the beach and in two spots there were steps.

    Had a great day surfing and boogie boarding while visiting the area. Be aware that most bathrooms are closed. The only one we found open was behind the snack shack at lifeguard station 4. It has decent outdoor showers but stalls need cleaning. Parking was $15 (or free on PCH).

    You may have to wait a few minutes for parking but it's worth the wait. The views of the beach are spectacular. Hike as far as you like along rocky cliffs to gaze at the Pacific and listen to the waves reverberate across the secluded cove.

    Very well kept pier, particularly the public restrooms at the far end! A selection of cafes and shops are available, though perhaps unsurprisingly the eateries are on the pricey side. The settings for eating are certainly lovely, but even if you were just to walk from one end to the other, it's worthwhile.

    I have been fortunate enough to get to know the students, professors and administrators and Pepperdine. in addition of having the distinction of being one of the most beautiful campuses and destinations in the world (MALIBU) , the quality of education, facilities and personal attention a student experiences is world class. Highly recommend.

    Great beach to take the dog to. Dogs allowed north of lifeguard tower 3. It’s a bit out of the way, and that’s good. Lower parking lot was closed when we were there, but easy access when you park on the side of the PCH. Dog-friendly beaches are rare in the LA area, so this one is worth the extra effort to get to.

    Spent a day at the beach here. I recommend making reservations for the lounge chairs but we didn't and were still able to get 4 chairs next to each other. Double chairs are $100 on weekdays and we found it to be worth it. The guys that help with the chairs are fantastic! They lay out the towels for on the chairs and fix the umbrella to your liking
    You can bring your own snacks and beverages but there is a Cafe. You go up to order and receive a buzzer to get the order when ready. The food takes quite a while so I wouldn't wait until your starving to order. An overall great day and will definitely return.

    This is a little gem, to be savored. So striking, so comfortable. It's not huge, but I couldn't imagine a better place to live. I lucked out by arriving between tours and basically being given a full private viewing. Downside: you could spend twice as long in the house as offered; it's that interesting {Apparently, pre-Covid, tours were much more involved, and one senses there was a one time, more enthusiasm on the part of its directors] I found the docent on duty (one of them. rather) slightly ornery, garrulous and an absolute delight!! Could have hung around all day and talked with her. There's a lot of info on the family in the 'museum' portion and people are more than willing to share. I even bought the book (tho' for less $$ on ebay). Parking is a bear, but 1/4 mile up the road is a shopping center: park for free, grab a starbucks if you feel guilty. I'd say this is a must see.

    There are some big waves here which attract some serious surfers - it does also mean that if you sit down by the front, your belongings are liable to get the occasional drenching! There's also the lagoon round the side where the birds crowd, which is something else to look at. It's not as picturesque as other beaches, but there is more going on.

    This place is between santa monica and Pacific palisades on your way to Malibu. Great place to hang out beach is small and intimate park your car on the pch and walk to the beach. Close enough to see from the pch. By the way the ocean water in the west coast is always cold. Around 50 to 60 degrees even in the summer

    Take a stroll down this beach and you'll be able to see the luxury malibu beach houses (more like mansions!) as well as the beautiful ocean views.

    I do not surf, however it is fun to watch the surf; this beach is a jackpot for that. The soft sand beach also has a wooden pier. Really picturesque.

    We took the Solstice Canyon Loop trail. Starting up Solstice Canyon Road to the waterfall, the trail is a little more than about 60% paved. The closer you get to the waterfall area, the more wash outs there are in the road. On our visit there was just a trickle of water at the falls. From here, I continued on the Rising Sun Trail. The trail immediately starts and climbing and doesn't stop for quite a ways, then a slow descent to the TRW Overlook and back to the parking lot. There is a view of the ocean from the Rising Sun Trail & TRW Overlook.

    Closed in 2019 after the Malibu fires of 2018, no day announced for re-opening. Tours that used to included wineries in Malibu are not currently operating.
