    Public Parking

    Gone are the days of free parking near the beach. So now, they have allotted areas of public pay parking. You will see these type of signs and I will tell you, although it was not a busy week day, they were checking the parking and the meters. This one was in front of the Adamson House and Surfers Beach.(23200 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu Ca.) We came upon a very nice gentleman who was attending the parking machines. He was so happy I took his picture, but I regret not getting his name. Its about $6.00 for almost the day. So be sure to keep track of the time you actually park. There are many areas along the highway you can, but very few. The rest is no parking zone, unless your a resident.

    Do Malibu by coast- Ride the scenic 534

    Going along the Malibu coast via PCH is a must -do in southern California. If by bus, the MTA 534 route is the main way to go. Starting from Fairfax/Washington street intersection by downtown LA and Culver City, the 534 precedes in the heart of Santa Monica before arriving to Malibu in about 30-40 min. There are a good number of points of interest along the way, inlcuding Malibu's improved Getty Villa, Will Rogers State beach, the Malibu Country Mart and Santa Monica's beach, pier and Third Street Promenade. Thus, this route is thus very tourist-friendly.

    Make sure to check out the MTA site for updates on any schedule changes.

    Big Blue Bus

    In Malibu, we dont have trains or airplanes or metros or anything of that sort... but the only public transportation is the MTA buses. They are big and blue, and you can't miss them!
    Along the road, you can see the bus stops which in Malibu are benches and you can expect a bus to come around to any stop within 15-30 minutes. Its not my favorite way of "getting around" but if you don't have a car, or a friend to bum rides from...sorry to say its your only choice.

    Otherwise, if you have a car, that would be the best. Living in Malibu, you will quickly come to realize a car is an everyday need!!

    GET A CAR. Namely, if you can afford it, a convertible. My opinion is that the best way to see Malibu is in a red Ford Mustang with the top down and the radio blasting. But then again, you may not be able to pick up any stations here in town. :)

    GET A CAR!!!!!! There's really no other way around it. Drive north on Pacific Coast Highway from LA is probably the best way, unless you're coming from the Santa Clarita area. Then, driving through the canyons is a real treat!
    A car!!!! Or renting a limo for a couple hours is nice too. That way, you can enjoy the scenery while kicking back.

    I recommend a MTB bike to get around the hills of Malibu. Preferably a full-suspension bike like this one.
