Our Trip to Malibu & Redondo Beach
My break schedule for school is not ideal – our “spring” break is the last week of February. It’s finally warming up in AZ at this time, but California is still a little chilly by my standards (hey – I’m a desert girl, I get cold at less than 75 degrees).
California is only a short drive away from us though, and there are still many cities we haven’t explored – so to California we went! We wanted a relaxing vacation filled with beach time and good food, and that’s exactly what we got.
We got really lucky and had a lovely sunny day our first day there. We ate breakfast at Wildflower Cafe close to the beach – I would highly suggest it! The food was delicious and I love a good patio restaurant. Next stop: the beach! Because I am from the desert, whenever I get near water I just want to hang out there for hours. So that’s exactly what we did.
The sun was shining just enough to warm us from the ocean breeze. This cute mint green sweater from J. Crew paired with white shorts was the perfect beach outfit! Shop my picks for beachy sweaters here:
Next – our trip to Malibu. We were excited for the beautiful views driving up PCH along the coast – and then we got this weather. 🙁
We are foodies, so after our day spent drinking wine we were ready for a good dinner! We opted to treat ourselves to Geoffrey’s – I highly recommend! The food was wonderful, great atmosphere and the views outside were so beautiful. Just look at these photos!
I got the Chilean Sea Bass – such a pretty dish and delicious! Bennett got the Wagyu Steak, which you can’t go wrong with. Their ceviche appetizer was pretty good.
Malibu Farm Cafe
This is a cute little cafe on the pier, so you get a lovely view. The crab cakes and homemade lemonade were so good! I would love to go back and try out the other bites they have on their menu. After eating you can walk around the pier and enjoy the views.
El Matador Beach
The last stop in Malibu. This beach is really pretty – lots of people were having photoshoots while we were here. There are really pretty rock formations and tons of spots for photo opportunities. The rocks jutting out at different intervals almost divides the beach into several mini beaches, so it’s easy to find a secluded spot.
As you can see, the views from this beach were lovely and a great way to end our trip! I love the mossy rocks and the little caves you could find all over the beach. Definitely a must see when visiting Malibu!
