Any place along the coast - truly anywhere. Many people take photos along the bluffs of Palisades Park, others will dine at Catch or have a drink at Casa del Mar or Shutters or The Lobster. You could go to any Malibu beachside restaurant. You could just go to the beach.

We just had a celebratory dinner at Duke's in Malibu and I made the reservation so we could enjoy sunset. . However, at this time of year, and due to Malibu's orientation along the water, the sunset was barely visible. Some parts of Malibu face South.

There are stadium seats at the end of Santa Monica pier, that's where I'd go. Or if you like photography, go to Santa Monica beach, south of the pier so your sunset photo can include the iconic pier and ferris wheel.

Might also try the Penthouse bar atop the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica. Otherwise, the restaurants mentioned are all good, or really any west-facing spot along Pacific Coast Highway where you can pull out.
