Malibu

Malibu

There are so many versions of Malibu that one can experience, an entire book could be written detailing things to do in Malibu. You could go to the beach, brunch, hiking, horseback riding, wine tasting, to a seance, drive along the PCH, buy a live chicken and a million other things.

It's going to be in the mid 80s this weekend in Malibu, which is perfect weather for sunbathing. I like to get up early and volunteer at the horse rescue then go to SunLife Organics and get a smoothie. There is a grocery store next to SunLife in Point Dume where you can get beach essentials, like a Wall Street Journal you aren't planning on reading and an inflatable dolphin.

The ocean in California is beyond freezing. You do not want to go into it without a wet suit. So you won't be swimming with your inflatable dolphin, but you can carry it around and use it as a prop for photos.

Around 11am people start to fill the beach with their children. This is the point at which you will want to leave. Nothing kills a vibe faster than a screaming child in tragic plastic sunglasses and a rash guard. There are a few beaches you can go to that are more or less child free. For example Ginger Rogers Beach, which is a gay beach, and is closer to town and has parking - great if you're feeling antisocial and lazy. I like the beaches in north Malibu best. Madator. Mugu. But most of all I like empty beaches, I am at my core antisocial AF.

After helping the horses and indulging in my narcissistic obsession with photography and being lightly tanned, I usually go home and take a nap. But I feel like other people would eat? My favorite restaurants in Malibu are Nobu - which is great for brunch and people watching, Taverna Tonys - Greek food and great for lunch or dinner, Neptunes Net - good if you want to eat fried food and watch people with motorcycles. My absolute favorite place, which is best for dinner, is a steak house deep in the canyons called The Old Place - I would really prefer it if you didn't go here, it's already hard enough to get a reservation and there are only two seating times each evening.
