MALIBU BEACH GUIDE
Malibu California is exclusive coastal community north of Los Angeles. Famous for its natural
beauty, twenty four beaches and casual, yet elegant lifestyle. We review only a few
of the best beaches in the region. Because most of the beach property is
privately owned by the wealthy who do not need to rent their homes.
there are very few private vacation rentals. There is one very
lovely beach front inn (See Malibu Lagoon Beach, aka
Surfriders Beach below to tour it.

within 15mi of Malibu, so that there would be a wider range of prices to choose from.)
