Tell us what Malibu means to you

  • What makes this a good place to live? What are the downsides?


I can tell that Malibu has a good impression on people. People said that the residents and neighborhoods are exceptional,but driving on PCH is pretty hard and there aren't many schools available.

It's all about the residents - the best ever.

Courteous, active in community affairs, dedicated school teachers, cleanliness, adequate shops.
