A day spent in Malibu. As part of my LA visit. I really wanted to visit and explore Malibu. One day definitely was not long enough. However I managed to cram a lot into one day! Malibu is in a stunning part of the world. It wasn’t what I was quite expecting being so stretched out along the beach front. I had envisaged it being a small populated strip of shops and restaurants.

It’s not.

Houses, restaurants and shops very much line the ocean. We were coming from West Hollywood for the day, so we left early to avoid the traffic. I would definitely recommend stopping at Malibu Farm on the pier for breakfast or coffee. It is such a gorgeous spot to sit and watch the ocean. Also for a glass of wine as the sunset here would be lovely.

They had this super cute pop-up shop down by the pier which I couldn’t resist. It had the most amazing Californian inspired pieces in there.


We then made our way to one of the gorgeous beaches down the road. The sand and beaches are so wide. The width of the sand is a long distance to the shore which is STUNNING. Also quite different to many of our Australian beaches.



This place is a must! The view is utterly breathtaking and WHO DOESN’T LOVE SUSHI??? Sushi is my absolute favourite and I can’t go past a view of the ocean. Probably the Aussie in me.  We stopped at Nobu for lunch and it was sensational. I do wish we had booked an earlyish dinner so we could have been here for the sunset but that will just have to happen next time 😉

After a day at Malibu beach. We drove up into the hills and made a quick stop at one of the wineries up there. Mostly to just look around and take in the view before dinner. It was good my sister was “taxi” driver for the trip. You definitely need a car in L.A.


We stopped at Geoffrey’s Malibu on our way home to catch the last of the sunset. Nevertheless, we ordered a glass of rose because we are in California after all. Geoffrey’s is really an institution here in Malibu and is very exclusively known. Staff were amazing and couldn’t do enough for us. Definitely an older clientele I would say. Nevertheless, a gorgeous spot to catch your breath, unwind and watch the sun go down.
