Day at the Beach.
Head north up the Pacific Coast Hwy (PCH) to sunny honey Malibu. Start at oceanfront institution Geoffrey’s at 27400 PCH / 310 457 1519 / geoffreysmalibu.com / with a lobster cobb salad and mimosa, or Nobu at #22706 / 310 317 9140 / noburestaurants.com / if you prefer sashimi surfside. Bypass crowded Paradise Cove and Zuma up to pristine and Fido-friendly Leo Carrillo Beach / 35000 PCH / near the LA County line. Zip on to Ventura County for seafood shack Neptune’s Net / 42505 PCH / 310 457 3095 / and say bye bye bikini; nab a picnic table or skip to the sands to ogle a classic Cali sunset. Can’t bear to leave? Turn your day into a stay – hopefully you know some big studio exec with a seaside manse, but if not, there is always the coastal-chic Malibu Beach Inn / 22878 PCH / 310 456 6444 / malibubeachinn.com.
