Once called the Riviera of America, Malibu Pier represents a historical landmark noted for its three-story point break popular with surfers. Only experienced surfers should brave these waves, but visitors will find plenty else to do on the pier. Learn about surf culture at the surf museum, take a boat tour of the coast, or pick up souvenirs from the gift shops. Get onto the water by joining fishing or whale-watching trips. If you do decide to ride the world-famous break, you can rent equipment on site. Malibu Pier is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • Malibu is a great place to come and relax. On a hot day, you can cool off on the beach. It is also a good place to people watch. Malibu is one of the fancier parts of Los Angeles as well, so there is good shopping here. Please be aware that traffic in this area can be a challenge.
  • I totally love this moment! We sat on the rocks facing the sea, not far from the famous bridge to admire the waves. Just chilling. You will find some restaurants around, even for small budgets. Jack in the Box is behind the parking (be careful not for vegetarians :(...). There are two public toilets (not very clean by cons) above the rocks. Also a nice place to discover and for photoshoot under the bride!
