Slip on your thongs and sunnies at one of the hotels in Malibu and waste no time claiming your relaxation zone at the shore. Grace the sands of the ever-popular Zuma Beach or ride the waves on a surfboard alongside the locals. Nearby, check out the sea caves and rock formations at El Matador State Beach (don't forget your camera). Westward Beach is another favourite, with awesome sea cliffs and hiking trails that lead to the Point Dume Natural Preserve. Hey, dude, "Dume" a favour and snap a photo of the brilliant sunset from the top! Continue west to check out the Adamson House, a historic landmark built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style that’s sometimes called the “Taj Mahal of Tile”. Further east you'll find the Getty Villa, a premier museum housing art from ancient Greece, Rome and Etruria (and you can learn what Etruria is!).
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is about 50 km east of Malibu, making it easy to hang out in the “City of Angels” for a few days. Book a Los Angeles hotel, then hop in one of our car hire deals (or catch a cab) when you’re ready to cruise. You’ll definitely want to feel the breeze in your hair as you travel the legendary Pacific Coast Highway.
