Welcome to the ‘Bu: You know, the ‘Bu don’t you? Well, it’s what locals have dubbed the 27-mile stretch of coastal paradise, Malibu. With 30 beautiful beaches to chose from, it’s no wonder celebs and wealthy folk alike choose the ‘Bu as their number one beach hangout—when they’re not jet-setting to private islands in the Arabian Sea.
The "to do's": Among the many activities offered in one of So-Cal’s most coveted surf spots, one in particular has got us thinking: hanging with the dolphins. Rent a sit-on-top kayak at the Malibu Surf Shack and get a seafarer’s view of the coast. You’ll swing by a series of beaches, including Carbon (aka Billionaire’s) Beach.
Cost: Rent a single kayak at $20 an hour or $35 for the whole day. Grab the beach towels and hop in the car soon, though. September is considered one of the best times to go.
