Where, Exactly, is Passages Malibu?

Passages Malibu is, of course, situated in the warm city of Malibu, California. It is approximately 30 minutes west from downtown LA and 18 miles West of Santa Monica. This is a place with sandy beaches and tropical palm trees galore, as well as top-notch shops and a few celebrities scattered here and there. It is also a great place if you enjoy a friendly and hospitable yet small population and a relaxed atmosphere that is ideal for someone who is recovering.

Apart from taking back your health and a new and improved sober lifestyle, you’ll also be able to visit upscale shopping centers and try out mouthwatering gourmet restaurants. The Malibu Lumber Yard is chock-full of celebrities’ favorite high-class boutiques such as Burgerfi, James Perse, and Maxfield to name a few, and the Malibu Country Mart is right next to it, with exquisite artwork and exclusive, hip brands – all of which you get to experience while looking at the stunning mountainside view.

If you end up going to the Malibu Pier, which is a part of the California State Park, then you will be missing out if you do not get some organic, delicious food at the Malibu Farms café while looking for dolphins over the breathtaking water! Another fantastic place to go looking for dolphins during high tide is Zuma Beach.

Coming to the subject of beaches, Malibu is famous for beach areas, as well as lesser-known beauties. For example, you may already know of Amarillo Beach, and its beautiful scenery that can be seen at low tide, but do you know about the less mainstream Leo Carillo Beach, a smaller beach preserve less than a couple of miles long which is located at the bottom of the Santa Monica Mountains?

If you are in the mood to explore deeper inland, Malibu is home to the most aesthetically pleasing hiking trails in the whole state. Trancas Canyon is about 6 miles northwest from Passages Malibu, and it houses the most amazing valleys that are brimming with a variety of Californian wildlife. Solstice Canyon is another must-see place that is around 3 miles in the other direction. You could go hiking and explore both areas while you are successfully achieving your sobriety and healing yourself!

If you’re not too intrigued by the outdoors, you’ll be pleased to know that Malibu has much more to offer. If you are interested in history, you may want to visit the Getty Villa, a place where you will find rare artwork that dates back to the Stone Age and goes up to the Fall of the Roman Empire. The Pepperdine University is a must-see for surfing enthusiasts, as there is a well-known surfboard exhibit that showcases antique surfboards that date back to the early 20th century. If you have a passion for architecture or a liking for gardens, then you need to have a look at the Adamson House, which is a 19th-century Spanish Colonial-style building.
