If you drive up Encinal Canyon Rd from Highway 1, after only a minute or two you will get to a lookout point with panoramic views of the coastline around Malibu! It's worth taking the tiny detour!

If you continue 3 1/2 miles to Charmlee Wilderness Park you can hike 3/4 mile on the Botany Trail to a meadow with views over the ocean. It's deserted during the week so come on the weekend.
For an incredible beach with arches, sea stacks, and caves, check out nearby El Matador State Beach.
While in Malibu, have lunch at Paradise Cove Beach Cafe which is right on the ocean. Check out the prime location and views at Adamson House. Or walk around the adjacent outdoor malls of Malibu Country Mart and Malibu Lumber Yard.
