On the beach… Next to the beach… Steps from the beach… All these are phrases you hear often that are almost never meant to be taken literally. Unless, that is, you are staying at the Malibu Beach Inn.
Walk into this charming, boutique hotel, situated right on Pacific Coast Highway, and you will be swept away. You will also immediately notice that you are directly on the beach. With a distinct California modern feel, touches of a beach-look theme splashed throughout and a laid-back surfer atmosphere, the Malibu Beach Inn still manages to be the place to see and be seen,
The intimate lobby boasts inviting leather couches and chairs that lead out to the magnificent outdoor restaurant, which offers a view of Malibu so stunning you may find yourself ordering extra appetizers. And you won’t be sorry you did once you’ve had a taste of the gourmet food that is both healthy and hearty, the perfect compliment to the sensational view and highly attentive staff ready to please even the most finicky diner. Once you’ve eaten, follow the stairs down from the restaurant and step out onto the creamy, white sand that is distinctly Malibu.
A run on the beach will be hard to resist so go for it, and upon your return you will find a member of the friendly beach staff waiting to set up your lounge chair and umbrella on the beach. Dive in and enjoy the surf, then step out into the zen: experience yoga on the beach, to help heal your mind, body and soul. The hotel can arrange your yoga lesson, as well as lush spa treatments at the Cure Spa to rejuvenate and renew your senses.
Just a short walk or quick drive away you’ll find the Country Malibu Mart, an outdoor mall featuring such fabulous shops as Chrome Hearts, Lanvin and John Varvatos, to name just a few, as well as a myriad of fine dining including the famous Nobu Restaurant and the don’t-miss Taverna Tony’s, where you will find some of the best taramosalata in Southern California.
With a location that really is ON the beach and also a hop, skip and jump away from world class shopping and dining, the Malibu Beach Inn is the perfect way for outsiders to experience Malibu from the inside.
