Laguna Beach was crowded before that TV show ever came out.

I don't know... I may contest that Palos Verdes is the Big Sur of Southern California.

There is no "Big Sur" in SoCal but the mountains north of Santa Barbara come the closest. Julian has a sort of "Big Sur" quality as well.

The area north of Malibu near Point Mugu is a little "Big-Suresque" as far as southern California goes.

Which mountain areas north of Santa Barbara are you referring to? The Gaviota Coast? Jalama?

Yes, over the San Marcos Pass & up in the Los Padres forest. But there are no redwoods in SoCal.

I love Malibu! How could anyone verbally trash a place with such stunning natural beauty!?! It honestly looks more like Hawaii than it does anywhere else in Los Angeles County. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to in the world (and I've been to Hawaii, Florida, Latin America, and Europe). I've seen such sights in Malibu as many dolphins along the crystal blue waters on the shore, breathtaking sunsets, and mist moving along lush green mountains. My honest guess is that those trashing it are either bitterly jealous of its residents, or are staunch right-wing Republicans who cannot stand the left-wing mentality of Malibu's residents (even though it's actually much of Los Angeles County, not just Malibu, that has left-wing-views).

P.S. (1) I don't live in Malibu, but have visited many times, and visit it often (lived in Southern California all my life).
(2) Yes, in case you're wondering, most of my political views do lean to the left.
(3) I honestly don't appreciate the stereotyping of Latinos as I am Latino myself, of Spanish (European (Spain)) descent.

Oh, my, just realized how old this thread is, oh well, guess I just revived it lol.

what about the palos verdes peninsula vs malibu? Both are definitely gorgeous, surprisingly isolated but still relatively connected to the rest of the county (i.e. its not Lancaster/Palmdale where its WAY out there)

I m from malibu born and raised lived there for 27 years so I'm not a transplant I went to Webster Elementary , Malibu High and all of that. Malibu is not really racist either , Im half mexican and half white.. Its not so much about race people in malibu that there snobs about its about money and social class. Although the poor hispanics in the high school were not accepted by popular rich kids at school , i digress… In my opinion Malibu proper is getting too crowded with people. Malibu is undergoing a transition right now because a lot of new people are moving in from LA building new houses and such. Malibu is awsomo it depends what you like. Its becoming more townish in malibu and less rural in places though. The rural parts that are left are in mountain canyon areas and beach areas north of zuma beach i.e. Trancas , Yerba Buena Point Magu ect.

Laguna Beach for one. La Jolla, Carlsbad, Del Mar...thats just off the top of my head.
