Perfect day in Malibu

If friends are visiting Malibu for the first time, or just want to take a day trip from LA, this is usually what I recommend. It's pretty casual and adaptable to do with or without kids, or solo too. It's also doable year-round, even when it's not warm enough to spend a whole day at the beach. Enjoy!
