Follow Pacific Coast Highway along 21 of the most magical miles Southern California has to offer

21 Magic Miles

Signs placed along Pacific CoastHighway remind those who drive into Malibu they have arrived at 21 miles of scenic beauty—and no part of the city falls short of just that.

Real estate in Malibu is as varied as its neighborhoods, from Big Rock Mesa to Point Dume, Broad Beach, Malibu Park and beyond. Malibu Colony offers the utmost privacy, situated behind a gate, while some of the most valuable homes fall within a stretch of Carbon Beach.

Staples throughout the city are cliffside homes, with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and glimpses of the Santa Monica Mountains. For those wanting to be closer to the shore, there are options to live along Pacific Coast Highway, with the beach conveniently located right in your backyard.

Something for Everyone

If looking for a more serene setting, away from the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfare, winding roads lead up to secluded canyons—still close enough to be a short drive away from the convenience of fine dining, multiple shopping centers and grocery stores.

Properties that fall within Malibu proper and right outside the 90265 zip code range from multi-acre horse ranches to more modest family homes, which draw an eclectic range of residents, from uber-famous celebrities to longtime Malibuites with deep roots in the community.

Malibu is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, Topanga, the Santa Monica Mountains, including Agoura Hills, Calabasas and Woodland Hills, and Ventura County.

Explore the Outdoors

While nearly every home in Malibu boasts an oceanfront view, for those who want to dip their toes in the water, the area offers some of the very finest beaches to visit in the world, including Zuma, Point Dume, Paradise Cove, Westward and more. 

And if that isn’t enough, Malibu also has ample hiking options for anyone looking for an alternate way to spend time in the almost year-round sunshine, with trails like Escondido Falls, Solstice Canyon and throughout Malibu Creek State Park. There are also a range of parks that attract visitors with events and natural beauty, like Malibu Bluffs and Legacy parks.

Ample Entertainment

Though the outdoors are a big draw for Malibu, there is also a wide variety of dining and entertainment options within the city.

Along Pacific Coast Highway, one can find anything from a steak at Mastro's to the highest-end dining at Nobu—and everything in between. Order some fresh seafood and take in the vibes at Neptune’s Net, located at the northernmost tip of Malibu, enjoy the expansive views of the Pacific at The Sunset Restaurant & Beach Bar or grab a burrito at Lily’s and head to the water.

Though a more laid back, beachy community, Malibu also has its fair share of high-end shopping, from Trancas Country Market to Malibu Country Mart and Malibu Lumber Yard. Most recently, The Park at Cross Creek opened in the city, with a Whole Foods Market, Blue Bottle Coffee, Howdy’s restaurant and more.

The Malibu Pier often tops “must-do” lists, with a history dating back to the early 1900s, now offering dining and shopping, as well as views of surfers and sealife. Throughout the year, Malibu highlights its sense of community with local events, like the annual Malibu Chili Cook-Off each Labor Day weekend and the Malibu Nautica Triathlon.
