Many people who live in Malibu have a deep appreciation for privacy. They live in gated communities, value discretion, and love wandering along the coastline to decompress. Malibu is also a lively place due to the beaches, shopping district, and wide range of bars and restaurants. Both the opportunity for privacy and excitement coexist in a place like Malibu. When people want to see and be seen, there are plenty of places appropriate for that, but there's also the option of staying inside one's palatial mansion or beachside property.
Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping
Malibu has various restaurants in decadent shopping malls like the outdoor Point Dume Village. Locals recommend places like Nobu to try their famous Japanese-Peruvian foods, Geoffrey's for its view, and Taverna Tony's for authentic Greek meals. Another ideal choice is the Spruzzo Restaurant & Bar for a relaxing, ambient setting. The Sunlife Organics juice bar is a great place to grab a smoothie after being out in the sun.
The Malibu Country Mart is an open-air market home to several restaurants. The open market itself is suitable for any gourmand. Lastly, the Trancas Country Market is another one-of-a-kind boutique in a rustic barn where anyone can pick up the perfect outfit to complement a fancy meal.
