A day trip to the beach??? You're looking at a 9 hour round-trip drive, without stops, just to get there and back.
Doesn't seem very "chill".
Why not fly and spend the weekend?
Why not determine what type of food you will eat & where that will be. Pretty much every place has online menus where you can see what meals cost and estimate what you'd need for food depending on your own dining style.
What souvenirs would you buy in Malibu?
Gas is getting expensive so plan on at least $4.50 per gallon. Depending on the gas mileage you get from the car you will use you can figure out gas money.
Lots of kids in colleges in LA have to drive to Las Vegas and back, in a day, and bring back photos of themselves in casinos or what is required for initiation, or others go to gamble. If the poster leaves early morning from Vegas they can be on the beach by noon and spend the day.
Bring $300. You can always eat hamburgers at In N Out and buy some T-shirts that say Malibu!
Do one of you have a credit card for a back up in case you get a flat tire on the road or other emergency?
Have you looked at the answers in your two other threads before posting again?
