As far as what Southern California has to offer. Malibu is probably one of the most scenic small beach towns in Southern California. Im sure other parts of Southern OC are really nice as well.Thats not overdeveloped with track homes or with tall apartment buildings. This is biased because Im from the area and I have lived there 27 years of my life. It's not the city itself thats really nice, the city is ok, as far amenities and entertainment are concerned there are better places with bars and restaurants like Santa Monica but beach is awesomo and the mountains are beautiful.

Does it get better than Malibu? Yes and No.

Laguna beach is better in my opinion. La Jolla too.

Malibu had a nude beach in the 1970's. No joke.

Yeah I know where the nude beach was its just south of Zuma Beach where the 80+ foot giant rock is at the south end of the beach. Behind the rock is the nude beach. There is a cove behind the rock. me and my friends went to go check it out one day a long time ago... .. they were only gay people hanging out there. no naked chicks..bummer

Pros / Cons

Pros

-Epic vistas

-Car Collector Guy heaven (driving thru canyons, via Kanan Dume Rd, then thru Zuma upto Point Mugu) up PCH in Sat/Sun AM is epic; see Leno/Seinfeld doing all the time.

-Living on the water; actual surf splash on deck (not on some McMansion Hilltop/Stepford Community, like Newport Coast)

-Good Food (Mastros, NoBu, Few Hotels...thats it!)

-Hot Babes (only at above and some beaches; not tourist traps OR actually living there)


Cons

-2 words: 2 Lanes
-2 numbers: 27 miles
-Living in Beach House; be prepared for your ear drums to burst from sound of surf crashing at 2am
-Very Old: no 20s Gals can afford to live here folks; just Cougars and Sugar Daddies
-Traffic
-Death; google deaths on PCH; people do 65pmh all the time; esp in dark
-High Class Red Necks; barn/feed stores
-ZERO stores; outside of few McMalls and Malibu Marketplace and Trancas Mkt


Overall, you cant really live here unless you are retired. Beats OC, because thats basically land of too old/too young; strollers and walkers; newly wed/nearly dead.

Perfect for rolling in for a great beach day picnic in your vintage convertible; classy dinner date on water with Barbie
or roaring to MuGu in your Mid Engine Exotic at sunrise
