Malibu is a small coastal community and beach city in Los Angeles County that has a more rural feel to it. Just under 20 square miles, this desirable affluent beach city has just under 13000 residents.
It has long been attractive to the rich and famous as a place to live and get away. There are beachfront homes with private beaches and estates in the hills above Pacific Coast Highway with large plots of land. Malibu is really quite remarkable.
Malibu has amazing weather with more than 300 days a year of sunshine on average. Temperatures average around 70 degrees yearly. Although summer temperatures can get into the 90’s and occasionally into the 100’s, Malibu does get a nice breeze from the Pacific Ocean and protection from the heat with a nice blanket of clouds in the mornings.
Surfing has always been part of the Malibu culture and has only grown in popularity. The weather is conducive to being outdoors so activities like swimming, surfing, body boarding, stand up paddle boarding, fishing, biking, skating, beach volleyball and any other sports you can think of doing while under the sun.
Malibu is different from beach communities to the south because it requires a level of wealth that fewer people can afford and therefore does not see the population or crowds that coastal cities to the south typically see. It is a quieter and more relaxing beach lifestyle in Malibu and a great place to live if you have the means.
The public school system in Malibu is exceptional with additional private school choices. There are plenty of parks and safe areas for children to play with ball fields, basketball courts, and playgrounds. There is also a great parks and recreation program that offers classes and activities for kids that keep them busy and productive.
