Malibu is a part of Southern California and is located on the northern side of the Santa Monica bay. The area is beautiful and unique with subtropical beachfront while also having mountain ranges inland. The locals will give you all the information necessary about where the celebrities, elite and surfers stay in their beautiful houses, the five-star restaurants they dine in and the fabulous boutiques they shop from. This place away from excess population and noise is perfect for recovering from addiction.
Even though Malibu lies only a mere 30 miles away from the Metropolitan area of Los Angeles, it is quiet and peaceful for a perfect resort area, unlike other places in LA. The surroundings are welcoming and make you feel at home. The weather is wonderful throughout the year and the sun out almost every day. A day seems perfect with a sunrise over the Santa Monica mountains and a sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
Malibu, CA is certainly known best for its world-class beaches. Paradise Cove offers terrific sunbathing and snorkeling, Lagoon Beach is a popular filming location, and Zuma Beach is one of the most popular surfing destinations in the entire state of California. There’s also lesser known areas such as Leo Carillo Beach, a beautiful 2-mile preserve at the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains that is perfect for quiet contemplations, and plenty of other similar gems.
Malibu also has some of the best hiking locations in Southern California (or “SoCal”, as the locals say). When you are recovering at Passages Malibu, you are 6 miles northwest of Trancas Canyon and its vibrant valleys. Solstice Canyon, roughly 3 miles in the other direction, is equally scenic and beautiful. You’re just never far away from nature in Malibu!
Of course, a lot of Malibu’s visitors would rather be carrying shopping bags rather than surfboards, and the posh area has many shopping districts to accommodate them. The Malibu Lumber Yard has Burgerfi, James Perse and Maxfield designer brands to keep even the choosiest fashion aficionado satisfied, and the Malibu Country Mart offers fine art mixed with more shopping and a breathtaking mountain view.
If you are a foodie, you’ll be delighted to learn of the many delicious and nutritious delicacies to be found in Malibu. The Malibu Farms Café, for example, offers out-of-this-world organic goods and fantastic dolphin spotting opportunities. You simply owe it to yourself to try the world-famous Nobu restaurant for fine dining that redefines gourmet with each and every meal. Consider it one of the many rewards of sobriety!
Architectural and historic buffs will be delighted by the many historic landmarks and museums. The Getty Villa displays rare exhibits from the Stone Age to the Roman Empire, the Malibu Lagoon Museum offers nostalgic surfing exhibits, and the Adamson House is a Spanish Colonial architectural marvel.
With humble and hospitable locals, Malibu is filled with lovely shops, gourmet restaurants, and beautiful beaches ready to be explored. If you want to spend some quality time in isolation while recovering, give us a call now.
