Malibu beach day

Drove out to Malibu from Sherman Oaks. Great drive! Malibu pier area was ok. Not much parking but that's pretty standard for any LA beach area. Lots of surfers in the water.

Worth an afternoon. Besides the beach there are restaurants, an arcade, rides, and lots of vendors. We did not go on the rides, felt they were pricey, but enjoyed looking around.

There is a well reviewed restaurant at the front of the pier but not all that much else. Far end is under construction. If you look off to the north, you can see the surfboarders. Just a few people fishing from the pier,

I had always promised myself that one day that I would go there. This is one of those few times that I kept that promise. Its a nice place to see. The ocean view and the folks there are a pretty good bunch. Parking as is to be expected is $$ and hard to find. But I was just there... More

Malibu pier is small but a nice visit. Check out Venice beach while there. And grab a burger. Fishing on the end of pier. A few rides for the kids and of course souvenirs.

Malibu is a nightmare to park in, but that said, we managed to snap a street parking meter for only $1 an hour on a Sunday!!!! Lots of restaurants and tourist shops around, but the pier is just a short walk to the end and not much else. Lovely views and good people watching. Nothing to go out of your... More

Not much to see as it is under construction But there is a great restaurant at the entrance to the pier. We had breakfast there and totally loved it.

There are a couple of places to have lunch on pier, medium priced for Malibu. Must pay for parking, no validation. Parking &10. Only a couple of places to browse for souvenirs, most highly priced.

Pier is small. Under construction, we walked up, down and then went over to the beach area. It's dirty and the restrooms are even more gross and disgusting. Parking is very hard and if you have to pay, its very pricy. I will not return.

We took family from out of town to Malibu for lunch and a view of the coastline. The Malibu pier is still under construction at the end but very popular otherwise. At the front is a bustling restaurant and bar and further on are nice benches to sit on and watch the beachgoers and surfers. Beyond those are the local... More
