Another popular beach in Malibu is Zuma Beach, which is also ideal for surfing in addition to rock climbing, swimming, or just relaxing in the sun with a good book.

A short drive inland from Malibu is the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which offers great hiking through lush canyons and rock climbing on the unique formations.
For a more urban excursion, a visit to the iconic Malibu Pier is fun for adults and children alike.
