There is a beautiful spot where the Pacific Ocean meets Malibu Creek. It’s called Malibu Lagoon, which also used to be known as Surfrider Beach. There are a lot of great spots for all the usual fun beach-related activities, but since this spot has some unique natural elements, there are even more things to do and see at this gorgeous destination.
In addition to visiting the amazing beach, Malibu Lagoon offers great saltwater fishing and bird watching, plus it is one of the most popular surfing spots in the area. It has a unique triple-cornered shoreline which creates a three-part wave, specific to the area and a favorite of local and international surfers alike.
You can also check out the Malibu Lagoon Museum to get a great inside look at the history of the area, the days of the Californian Indian Chumash Tribe, history of the area rancher, and the birth of the surfing era. You can get a guided tour led by a knowledgable docent, for even more stories, anecdotes and legends about the area. In fact, you can even get tours of all the area wetlands, tidepools and everything else making up this amazing natural preserve.
Also in the area is the Adamson House, which overlooks the pier and the beach. It is a historical museum-style house, built in 1929 and contains some of the best examples of decorative ceramic tile. The home is also a beautiful example of the Spanish Colonial Revival style that is very popular in the Southern California area.
Malibu Lagoon is situated about 40 minutes west of Los Angeles, so you will want to be sure to drive there in your GL63 AMG SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. Not only will you drive in style and elegance, but you will have the room for your surfboard, your beach gear, and anything else you need to make it a fun and memorable day at Malibu Lagoon.
