Where Do I Get The Best View of Malibu?

There’s no such thing as The Best spot to view Malibu. There are however, a few places to take pictures of the beautiful coast. Here are my top two.

Pacific Coast Highway or CA State Road 1

The easiest option to see the amazing view is the California State Road 1 aka Pacific Coast Highway. You can basically drive this highway from Southern California to Northern California and visit the beautiful area of Big Sur. You are guaranteed an amazing view. I could write a whole post about this but I won’t digress.

Once you hit Malibu on the PCH, an amazing view will start emerging. Just park on the side (clearly lined with cars) and enjoy. There are no meters or time limits just don’t leave it overnight. Avoid the parking lots ($7 – $10) if you can but during high season, it may be your only choice.

My favorite part was seeing the surfers getting ready (like a creeper) and heading down to the beach where they slowly, one by one swam away.

Pepperdine University

Your other option is to drive to the campus of Pepperdine University. They also have an amazing view (just go to their website, check it out and you will see). However, a security guard guards the campus entrance and your entry will depend greatly on him/her. BUT if you are nice enough and tell them you are there to check the campus, they will usually let you in.
