Moving to Malibu
Anyone looking for the perfect wave will find it here in Malibu, a surfer’s paradise that has attracted everyone from celebrities to foreign investors to its shores.
Sun-kissed beachgoers crowd boutiques and fine restaurants, and though the water is tempting, elegant homes with stunning ocean views will make you want to stay in.
This free-spirited beach city stretches for over 27 miles along the Pacific Coast Highway and lies about 30 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.
The city’s overall vibe is laid-back but elegant, with an outdoor culture that makes the most of the natural attractions present in the area.
In Topanga Beach, waves surround a sandy point created by Topanga Creek, giving surfers a continuous right break. Cinematic cliffs and coves set the mood in Point Dume State Beach, where you’ll be able to spot California gray whales between December and mid-April.
Both areas are home to neighborhoods that bring you close to some of Southern California’s most impressive natural attractions.
Delectable seafood dishes and a festive atmosphere bring people to the Malibu Pier. Right next to the famed “Riviera of America,” you’ll find Surfrider Beach – a dream destination for surfers, thanks to a three-point break that promises a ride of over 300 yards.
There’s also plenty to do indoors – aside from shopping and dining, you can get a glimpse of ancient Greece and Rome at the Getty Villa.
The museum has an impressive collection of artifacts that include statues of goddesses and other figures from mythology, and more down-to-earth items like ancient perfume containers and drinking horns.
