The Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) travels Malibu’s dramatic 27-mile shoreline at the edge of the Santa Monica Mountains. You can pull off the road at numerous spots and take in the view. Leo Carrillo State Park Campground at the north end of Malibu has especially good beach access, and also camping facilities. Downcoast of Topanga Canyon Boulevard the popular beaches are broad and flat. Malibu Lagoon and the Malibu Lagoon Museum are particularly interesting for wildlife viewing and local history.
