Getaway

Malibu Road Trip

I’ve always wanted to do a road trip where I drive on the California coast. Finally, during this trip to LA I got the chance to do it by driving to Malibu! It’s fascinating how Malibu is just one hour away from LA but it is a totally different world, it’s a paradise. The drive on the Pacific Coast has the most amazing views and you will in awe of how scenic it is.

There are a lot of fun things to do in Malibu like the Malibu Wine safari that I posted in my previous blog. During this trip to California, I was limited on time so I just went to Malibu for a day, this meant that I had to make the most of it! Our first stop was the Malibu Cafe which is very popular, I recoment making a reservation before going. It’s a great location to go for lunch and the food is delicious. I had the burger, which is a must and the shrimp tacos, everything was very tasty. At the Malibu Cafe, they, also, have different activities to entertain you before, after, or while you dine. For example they have giant table games, lake boat rides and live music.

Our second stop was at Matador Beach. I know I might have said this before but this is the most beautiful beach I have ever been to! It was a relief to find that Matador beach is totally different than Miami’s beaches, not that there’s anything wrong but it’s nice to feel away from home when you travel. Matador beach has beautiful, huge rocks across the beach creating the perfect setting to watch the sunset. Beware... the water is super cold!

Moonshadows restaurant  for  dinner, a reservation is, also, recommended. Like most of the restaurants in Malibu, the menu mostly consisted of seafood. This restaurant has an amazing ocean view and the food is just as great. Moonshadows is a great spot for an afternoon of drinks and great music.

Wanted to share with you guys my awesome experience at Malibu Wine Safari! I always wanted to go and finally decide to do a road trip there while I was in LA. 

The Wine farm is located in Malibu, a one hour drive from Los Angeles, but worth it! The drive is very scenic and breathtaking, you get to see the most beautiful views of the Pacific Coast.

 During the Safari you can either hike or take the safari cars, both different experiences. If you pick the cars you drive around the farm and had wine tasting at every station you stop. While the hiking you only do wine tasting at the end but you get to see some hidden gems of the property.

I highly recommend anyone to reserve the safari tour in advance, they are usually always booked.

They main attraction is this handsome guy named Stanley! He is the sweetest, and he is actually a retired actor (no joke). Stanley has appeared in several movies including "The Hangover 3". He is 10 years old and has his one Instagram account: @a_giraffe_named_stanley

Not only do you see giraffes but, also zebras, llamas, donkeys & other animals. You get the chance tofeed them all. They are super friendly & fatty.

At the end of the tour you get to relax and enjoy a wine tasting session with selected wines from the farm. Defintely worth the go, it’s great to go with a group of friends is super fun! They also clebrate birthdays, bachelorettes and wedding at the property. The farm is privately own by a family and all the staff are super nice and fun. I really enjoy the wine tasting, the wine is amazing and it’s all made at the farm.
