The word “Malibu” conjures visions of beautiful beaches, beautiful people and many of the most luxurious beach homes on the entire West Coast of the United States, and including those in the exclusive gated enclave, “Malibu Colony,” best-known for its high-profile residents in the entertainment industry. In fact, the City of Malibu is world-renowned for its population of surfers, celebrities, eccentrics and otherwise notable people. It’s a more than 20-mile-long stretch of spectacular coastline paralleled by an equally well-known ribbon of road called the Pacific Coast Highway. “PCH” in local parlance. Its high-rises are 2-story beach bungalows and traditional business attire often means bathing suits and flip-flops, or jodhpurs and riding boots. If it’s an ambiance of relaxed luxury and the quintessential indoor-outdoor lifestyle you’re after, then Malibu is a great choice.
Most of Malibu’s nearly 13,000 residents live within a quarter-mile or so of the beach, with some residing in canyons up to a mile away from PCH. The community is bordered by Topanga on the east, Ventura County on the west, and is sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean to its south and the Santa Monica Mountains to its north. There are 7 beaches and 4 parks within the town’s boundaries; with several others in close proximity. The 4 public schools are overseen by the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, and there are 6 private schools, including Pepperdine University.
