My husband and I are going to be in Malibu for 3 days in the begining of February 09. I was just wondering what we should do while we are there. We're staying at the Casa Malibu Inn. Has anyone stayed there that might have any "inside" info ie: the beach area it sits on. Can you swim there or surf? Any good restaurants in town that the locals love? Any fishing rental places (rod etc)? Back to surfing.....I have read that there are beaches that are "locals only". Is this true? If so, what would be a good beach for a tourist to surf. My husband is a beginer so it can't be too dangerous a beach. Any romantic areas for a picnic? Great photo vistas?
