Where is Malibu on the California map?
Malibu is a beach town located in Southern California. It is about 30 miles west of Los Angeles, about 18.5 miles north of Santa Monica, a three-and-a-half-hour drive from San Diego, and a seven-hour drive from San Francisco.
Since Malibu is right along the famous Pacific Coast Highway (aka PCH), many of the 12,645 residents opt to live close by for easy access. The city itself is 21 miles long. In fact, many of the signs around the city declare that Malibu is “21 miles of scenic beauty.” Locals and mostly surfers refer to the city as simply “the Bu.”
Residents and visitors alike can visit a number of beaches, including Surfrider Beach, Zuma Beach, Malibu Beach, Topanga Beach, Point Dume Beach, County Line, and Dan Blocker Beach.
Malibu has also become a residence of the rich and famous. Famous residents include Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga, and Edward Norton, just to name a few.
What can you do in Malibu?
There is a lot of things residents and visitors can do in Malibu, besides celebrity house hunting of course!
Malibu sits right on the cost, so you can visit any one of the gorgeous beaches, like Malibu Beach, Point Dume Beach, and Topanga Beach. Malibu also has a number of state parks, like Malibu Creek State Park and Point Mugu State Park.
We highly recommend Zuma Beach. It’s on the way to Vintage Grocers and is where the original Baywatch was filmed!
Malibu has museums – the Getty Villa is an educational center and museum that houses art from Greece, Rome, and Eturia. The Adamson House is a historic house and is known as the “Taj Mahal of Tile.”
If you’re looking for some great food, there is plenty of restaurants to choose from – especially places that have outdoor seating. Nobu is ones of those restaurants that have both. The sushi eatery is also great for celebrity sightings! The locals and star residents love eating at Taverna Tony, a Greek restaurant in the Malibu Country Mart. Mr. Chow, a Beijing-inspired eatery, is also a celebrity favorite.
For more great restaurants, check out Zagat’s list of 15 restaurants worth the drive to Malibu.
And, if you’re looking for a peaceful place to watch the sunset, Malibu Pier in California State Park is the perfect spot! You can also watch surfers, fish, and maybe even spot a dolphin. There are also places to grab a bite to eat and shop.
Lastly, Point Dume is gorgeous! Aside from tons of celebrity homes, park at Point Dume park and hike the easy trail to the top of the point. The view is incredible!
Where did Johnny Carson live in Malibu?
Johnny Carson was once Malibu’s most famous residents. The Tonight Show host, who passed away in 2005, moved into the lavish four-acre estate in the mid-1980s. The home was built in 1978 and designed by Ed Niles. The 7,083-square-foot estate features glassy, modern fixtures with sky-high ceilings.
Sidney, a film producer, and Caroline Kimmel purchased the home in 2007 from Carson’s widow for $46 million. However, many of the original home’s designs and Carson’s special touches remain. The Kimmels have placed the estate on the market for a whopping $81.5 million.
Back when Carson owned the home, he only had one bedroom. If he had any out-of-town guests, they would stay in the guest house across the street. But the home now has two bedrooms and four bathrooms. The guest house also has one bedroom, and the tennis pavilion has two bedrooms.
