The Malibu Colony is made up of a few wooden stilt houses on both sides of the Malibu Pier, whit a more gentle Ocean on the North side of the beach which makes for a perfect place for surf beginners.

This is a gated private community you can only visit if a resident puts your name on the guest list.

Fun to look "At" but you can't go in or see anything but the beach exposure of the houses. Parking is a challenge, but doable. Nice to do Once, then it's out of your wish list...

shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted
