Visit to the Malibu Pier
The Malibu Pier is one of the most, if not THE most iconic landmarks that Malibu has to offer. Built in 1905, the pier has gone through a number of renovations throughout the years, however it still looks fairly similar to its original construction.
The main activities on the pier include sightseeing, shopping at the local gift store, dining at Malibu Farm, great photo ops, as well as fishing for you anglers out there.
The Pier sits directly next to the famous surf spot, Surfrider Beach, and is a great place to watch surfers catch some waves.
The Malibu Pier also features one of Malibu’s most popular places to eat, Malibu Farm. Malibu Farm has two locations on the Pier, one at the end (the cafe) and one at the base of the pier (the restaurant). Both serve delicious food, however feature different menus. Take your pick, you can’t go wrong with either.
Eat at one of the Iconic Malibu Restaurants
If you decided not to eat at the pier, Malibu other restaurants that are part of the fabric of the city. Some of these restaurants have been here for as long as people can remember, some are insanely popular, some are both. Here are just three that we recommend you try out when you visit.
Malibu Seafood – This seafood joint located across from Dan Blocker Beach has become a Pacific Coast Highway landmark for its unmistakable square sign featuring a large red lobster. On any beautiful, sunny beach day the line for this place will be so long it often times floods onto the should of the highway. Definitely worth the wait if the line is long! BYOB as well :).
Paradise Cove Beach Cafe – This restaurant sits right on the beach at Paradise Cove Beach Club, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There you will find lily'slocals and tourists alike. The menu boosts quite a few options to chose from, the portions are on the large size and if you want a recommendation go for the tacos. Perhaps the best part about this restaurant is that you can be seated outside, directly on the sand. There aren’t a lot of better sceneries to have a meal!
Lily’s Cafe – If you’re looking for a great burrito, look no further. Lily’s has become incredibly popular over the years for its signature breakfast burrito. Lily’s by no means is a one trick pony, however. It is hard to miss with anything on the menu from their tacos to their burger. It is all DELICIOUS! Be sure to CALL AHEAD with your order. During the busy hours the wait can be up to 40 minutes.
