Malibu is known all over the world as the community where Hollywood stars hang out.  Looking at films, you imagine desserted beaches, homes right on the ocean and semi-nude starlets everywhere.

Well... it is true to a certain extent.  There are many movie and tv stars living in Malibu among ordinary folks.  The community spans around Pacific Coast Highway and stretches from Topanga Canyon to Ventura County.  It consists of 21 miles of prime Pacific coastline.

My favorite Malibu beach is Zuma beach.  I forewarn you, you absolutely have to get there early to get a parking spot next to the sand.  There have been many times where we'd get there from Pasadena which is about an hour away and sit in the car for another hour waiting to get into the public parking.  Early bird gets the worm, right?

What I love about Zuma beach is that you can go hiking as well as swimming and surfing.  There's plenty of white sandy beaches and it's a true California experience.

Now how about home prices in Malibu?

Homes run anywhere from a bit over a million dollars to multi milliion dollar estates.  Median sales price for April 2013 was $1,980,000 for example.
