THE FULLEST Guide to Malibu
Just north of Los Angeles lies Malibu, a magical melting pot of stunning coastline, golden beaches, striking mountains, natural healers, organic food stores, luxury hotels, curated boutiques, and a dash of celebrity. Carson Meyer is a birth doula, photographer, nutritionist, and founder of C & The Moon. She was also born and raised in Malibu, and we were fortunate enough to have this Malibu native share her best local spots and places to visit next time you’re in Malibu.
Much like The Surfrider, the Hotel June was once a rundown landmark Malibu motel that has recently been converted into a chic boutique destination. It is located on the northern side of Malibu, which has a more quiet, local feel, iconic beaches, and its own little shopping center.
This is one of those places that feels too good to be true. It is a health nut’s dream. Ice cream, smoothies, milkshakes, tacos, salads, sandwiches, bowls, all cooked with high-quality, gluten-free ingredients. Hard not to order everything on the menu. But if you did, you would still leave feeling guilt free!
This is one of my favorite places to be in Malibu. In the springtime, the daisy bloom is breathtaking. If you sit on the bluff long enough, you will see dolphins and maybe even whales depending on the time of year. It’s a great place for a sunset stroll and a fun place to bring kids.
The Ranch is a profoundly rewarding experience that challenges the body and mind in the best way. This fitness retreat includes long daily hikes through some of the most stunning ocean view trails, nourishing healthy meals, daily massages, and a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel.
