If you’re ever in Malibu desperate for some views but short on time, Point Dume Nature Preserve is the place to go. There are only a few spots to park (I had to park several minutes away, next to the elementary school in the neighborhood), but the views are almost immediate as you make your way down the paths.
I never got all the hype about Malibu, but that was before I went there. It’s breathtaking!! And I’m more of a mountain girl than an ocean girl.
