Welcome To Malibu

Cliffside homes, pristine beaches, and breathtaking views are hallmarks of this area.

Malibu is home to many celebrities and entertainment industry tycoons. Serene and sun-soaked, the area represents the ultimate retreat.

Malibu owes its name to the Chumash, Native Americans who originally settled there and named it Humaliwo, which means "the surf sounds loudly.” The area was highly secluded until 1929 when the Pacific Coast Highway was built. Now Malibu is a thoroughfare for many vacationers driving up and down the California coast, and a highly revered destination for Los Angeles locals.

The Neighbors

What to Expect

Jagged cliffs, secluded coves, and miles of sparkling ocean draw people from all over the city to Malibu’s stunning shores.
