Well of course when we hear the word Malibu, we all think of Pamela Anderson in a red swimsuit, running in slow motion into the wind to save lives. We were hopeful when we hit the beach, but unfortunately Pamela wasn't waiting for us! But we saw the famous lifeguards in their red uniforms. Apart from its use for Baywatch, Malibu is nothing special, a simple, quiet beach where you can relax and sunbathe or swim.
I recently went to a friend's wedding in Malibu and stayed at Villa Calcare. This villa is built on a 3 hectare plot of land, with five deluxe bedrooms and even an private cinema. It overlooks the sea, and has a private beach where weddings take place. There's a large outdoor jacuzzi, too. It's not cheap, but it's an excellent option for a large group ve want to have a truly memorable holiday.
Avoid the inevitable crowds at Santa Monica Beach by driving farther north to this less busy beach in Malibu. It is a little bit of a drive (about an hour from Santa Monica), but it’s for that reason that it’s pretty secluded, which can be nice for those who desire a less chaotic environment in LA County. Leo Carillo is a particularly nice beach for surfers – the waves are pretty nice. There are also caves and reefs to explore. It’s a nice place for beach-combing, too. In addition to surfers, I highly recommend this place for those who like taking photos and want a non-chaotic place to hang out. There’s parking at the park across the street, but there’s a lot of parking on the street itself so you don’t have to cross and won’t have to pay any fees.
