The Best of Malibu


Gorgeous sunsets, beautiful beaches, the best surf and over 300 days of sun per year. Surf City U.S.A. — Malibu — is a beloved destination for limo services throughout Southern California. Tourists from throughout the world head here on their Californication with LAX sedan service to experience the best of California beaches and a relaxed coast atmosphere, just few miles from the hassle and stress of Downtown. But it’s far from just the beaches that makes Malibu such a popular destination. Bordering the Santa Monica Mountains, the canyons and mountains (located few miles inland from the city) offer some of SoCal’s best wine country. While many head on wine tours to Malibu Family Wines, nestled in its own canyon surrounded by beautiful nature, others prefer tastings along the Pacific. After all, what could be better than enjoying a drink while taking in the breeze and beauty of the Pacific Ocean? Situated just across the PCH, the Rosenthal Tasting Room offers tastings with magnificent ocean-views, often accompanied by live music and local food-trucks. Malibu Family Wines in the Malibu Canyons are open for picnicking, and food-trucks are also often present here, along with their own safari tours and live entertainment and outdoor movie screenings.

 Besides regular Malibu limousine rides, we also offer wedding transportation, wine tours, LA to Vegas party bus rides, LAX transfers and more.

Bars and Restaurants



Besides Malibu wine tours, there are lots of more things to do in Surf City USA! Some of Los Angeles County’s most popular beach bars and restaurants are located here, particularly those located on the beach are popular destinations for Malibu limousine clientele. Enjoy a meal at the Sunset Restaurant, located on Zuma Beach, for the beach-bungalow-dinner-experience. Other restaurants located on the beach itself include for example Paradise Cove Beach Café, where you can literally sit in the sand or go for a swim in between your tropical cocktails, as well as another tremendously popular restaurant, Dukes Malibu. We recently had an LA to Vegas party bus customer who said Moonshadows by far is the best Malibu destination by limo. Some of the best views can be enjoyed from Moonshadows, where you can enjoy a meal on a balcony over the ocean. And why go on wine tours when you can try one of Carbon Beach Club’s more than 100 wine varietals! While in the area, don’t forget a visit to the famous Pier! Once a symbol of the American Riviera, surfers from throughout the world head to the adjacent Surfrider Beach for what could be California’s best surf. Among our clientele however, most head to Surfrider’s Beach for a stroll along the beach walk or to visit one of the Pier’s two restaurants. The food and coastal views at the Farm Pier Cafe is unmatched! There are boats leaving the pier daily for fishing, whale-watching, and more.



Beaches


While Surfrider’s Beach might be amongst the most popular beaches, people order limo services for numerous Malibu beaches. As the terrain is so rugged with the Santa Monica Mountains some places literally dropping into the ocean, the so often steep, rugged and rocky seaside makes for some amazingly stunning beaches. With nearly 30 miles of coastline, Malibu stretches for 27 miles from Topanga County Beach in the very south to Leo Carrillo State Beach in the north. Along with Surfrider’s Beach, the Topanga County Beach is also a popular beach for surfers where the Topanga Creek outlet being a particularly popular surfing spot. Better for swimming are the Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beaches. Maybe not the most popular destination for limos for rent, but these three beaches offer arguably the LA region’s best beaches for swimming, picnicking, and is a great place to bring the kids along. Amongst the area’s most secluded stretches of coastline, La Piedra State Beach offer scenic views, breathtaking cliffs and a truly secluded location. Being the most western of the Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beaches, the El Pescador State Beach offer the shortest hike from the parking lot to the beach. This sandy cove is also home to the hidden El Sol Beach, a hidden Southern California treasure. The last of the Robert Meyer Memorial State Beaches, El Matador State Beach, might offer the most scenic landscape and picturesque views. Our LAX sedan service even recently transferred international tourists directly to this beach from the airport! Known for its scenic rock formations and arch, sea-caves and secluded character, El Matador State Beach is a must-visit for beachgoers. You don't have to come flying into LAX to order transportation to the beach, our local limos for rent can get the job done! If you are flying into LAX however, remember to check out our price-match-guaranteed LAX sedan service.

Staying overnight? We know the local hotels better than anyone! Maybe not surprisingly, the best rated is also our number one recommendation and the most popular hotel for Malibu limo renters. We have weekly limos for rent heading to the magnificent Malibu Beach Inn. Situated on Carbon Beach, this 4-star hotel is as close to the ocean you can get. Furthermore, the hotel is home to the Carbon Beach Club Restaurant where you can enjoy a drink or dinner on a balcony over the sea. In other words, it doesn’t get more romantic than this.

The 47 rooms here have modern designs and the hotel is within a short walking distance of the pier, the Malibu Country Mart and numerous restaurants, including the Malibu Farm Pier Café located in the midst of the ocean. The hotel however might be overpriced considering that there are no swimming pool nor spa or jacuzzi, and no gym at the hotel. More affordable options include the 3-star Malibu Country Inn and the M Malibu. The Country Inn is a 1950’s motel with its own heated swimming pool and the Collection Restaurant and Bar is located right next-door to the motel and offers stunning ocean-views. The gorgeous garden setting and charming character makes it an intimate retreat. All rooms have sun patios with stunning ocean-views, while the suits also have their own fireplace. This 16-room motel might be smaller than most, but shouldn’t be overlooked. Lastly, the M motel is a little larger, 18 rooms to be exact. The M is within walking distance of various local restaurants and shops. All rooms come with patios, but make sure to ask for a room in the 2nd or 3rd floor for ocean-views!
