Driving straight to San Diego with a baby didn’t seem like a good idea so we stayed in Carlsbad for the night. And I’m happy we did. Such an easygoing place. I swear i haven’t met so many nice people anywhere!! Loved it
We enjoyed our stay in Beach Terrace Inn. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
There are two beaches. The one you access from the main parking area is the South beach and only short hike away is the dog friendly North beach. In between them there is a rocky area known as Sequit Point which has tide pools.
Malibu lagoon is where Malibu Creek meets the ocean. From the parking lot the path leads you through wetlands (we’ve seen a lot of bird watchers on our way)
to the Surfrider beach on your left. You can see the Malibu pier from there.
If your curious how the rich lives after the wetlands turn right and check the amazing beach houses
So far my favourite beach in Los Angeles with a little hike as a bonus. I would recommend to park bellow the Point Dume trail. Its worth the 8 dollars for a day. Go up for short hike with great views and seals spotting and later enjoy the walk in gorgeous beach. You can finish your perfect morning having lunch in Sunset restaurant in the entrance of the parking area of Point Dume.
This is the place to go with your out of town, out of the country visitors.
Start the day with a big breakfast in Back on the Beach Cafe so you have enough energy to walk to the pier and snap few instagram pictures.
One of the most photogenic beaches in Malibu. Bring a carrier, there are a lot of stairs down to the beach
with a newborn you can’t go to the beach . This is the next best thing. Strolling next to the beach. Unlike more famous beaches in LA this one doesn’t smell of urine. The path is really long and its only up to you if you want to continue through Hermosa beach to Redondo beach.
