Passages Malibu is located in the sunny city of Malibu, California, about 30 minutes west from downtown Los Angeles, and 18 miles west of Santa Monica. This is where sand and palm trees meets celebrities and shopping for the ultimate vacation experience. It’s also where you’ll find a welcoming low population and an even lower-key atmosphere that is perfect for recovery.
Aside from regaining a refreshingly sober lifestyle, you’ll also enjoy a variety of elite shopping centers and delicious gourmet eateries. The Malibu Lumber Yard has celebrity-friendly designer boutiques like Burgerfi, James Perse, and Maxfield (just to name three), and the Malibu Country Mart is next door with fine art and chic brands – all while facing the beautiful mountainside.
If you find yourself on the Malibu Pier (part of the California State Park), then you’ll have to grab some organic goodies at the Malibu Farms café while spotting dolphins over the clear waters! Zuma Beach is another excellent place for watching dolphins, though you’ll only see them during high tide.
Speaking of beaches, Malibu has world-famous spots as well as hidden gems. For example, you’re probably already familiar with Amarillo Beach and all of its amazing scenery during low tide, but are you familiar with the lesser-known Leo Carillo Beach? It’s a small beach preserve that’s less than 2 miles long, situated at the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains.
If you are willing to explore farther inland, than Malibu has some of the most scenic hiking trails in the entire state. Trancas Canyon is roughly 6 miles northwest of Passages Malibu, and it offers lush valleys full of native Californian wildlife. At the same time, Solstice Canyon is about 3 miles in the opposite direction. Why not explore both to celebrate your newfound sobriety and independence?
Of course, not all of Malibu’s beauty is to be found outdoors. History buffs will be pleased to visit the Getty Villa, where you can view rare artwork from the Stone Age all the way up to the Fall of the Roman Empire. Meanwhile, at the Pepperdine University, you can find a famous surfboard exhibit that shows antique boards dating back to the early 1900s. If you have any interest in architecture or outdoor gardens, then you have to check out the 19th-cenutry Spanish Colonial-style Adamson House.
These destinations represent just a mere fraction of the numerous shopping, dining, and relaxing locations that are waiting for you in Malibu, California. It’s one of the few places where you can do as little or as much as you want, and still feel like you’ve gotten enough accomplished for the day.
