Watch surfers ride the waves, enjoy a meal above the ocean and leave the hustle of the city behind.
Located in the area once called the Riviera of America, the Malibu Pier has been an icon of Southern California since it was first built in 1905. Today, surfers from around the world head to the pier's adjacent Surfrider Beach for its three-point break that offers rides of more than 300 yards. While the pier has been in various phases of reconstruction and improvements over the years, its stunning coastal location lures visitors time and time again. Stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Malibu Farm Restaurant & Bar, which sits at the entrance of the pier and offers flavorful menu items made with organic and locally sourced ingredients. For a true piece of 'The Bu, peruse the goods at The Ranch at the Malibu Pier. This chic boutique is stocked with everything from artisanal housewares and beachy fashion to handmade alpaca scarves sourced from ONE GUN RANCH, the biodynamic farm located just above the pier in the Malibu canyons.
