Malibu Beach and the Pacific Coast Highway | Travel Post

April 19, 2016

I’ve been to California a couple of times before but it was my first time in Malibu. The husband and I flew into LAX and stayed in an AirBnB in Hawthorne right outside of Los Angeles. The apartment was decent and spacious just how it was advertised but after checking out the next morning we realized the neighborhood was actually kind of sketchy.

After a short nap in Hawthorne we decided to have lunch in Malibu and drive on the Pacific Coast Highway. It was about an hour drive from the AirBnB.

At home we do take-out from Cafe Habana a few times a year so it was fun to compare the two locations. I had the Mahi Mahi fish taco platter with the rice and beans while he had a burger. We weren’t disappointed.

We left our all-new 2017 Kia Sportage parked on the Pacific Coast Highway and walked about five minutes to the Malibu Lagoon and beach.

Although we saw three surfers in the ocean it was too cold for us and we didn’t get in the water. We visited on Wednesday April 13, 2016. But the view was absolutely gorgeous! Don’t you agree?

As far as my outfit, I can’t remember where I bought the skirt. It’s more than four years old for sure. The sandals and purse are from T.J. Maxx.

Are you planning a weekend getaway? Any recommendations for our next trip?
