The city of Malibu is a 21-mile[5] (33.5 8m) strip of Pacific coastline; a beachfront community famous for its warm, sandy beaches, and for being the home of countless movie stars and others associated with the Southern California entertainment industries. Most Malibu residents live within a few hundred yards of Pacific Coast Highway (California State Route 1), which traverses the city, with some residents living up to a mile away from the beach up narrow canyons; the city is also bounded (more or less) by Topanga Canyon to the east, the Santa Monica Mountains to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the south, and Ventura County to the west. Its beaches include Surfrider Beach, Zuma Beach, Malibu State Beach and Topanga State Beach; its local parks include Malibu Bluffs Park[6] (formerly Malibu Bluffs State Park) and the planned Legacy Park[7], with neighboring parks Malibu Creek State Park, Leo Carillo State Beach and Park[8], Point Mugu State Park[9], and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, and neighboring state beach Robert H.

Climate

Malibu is set in a mediterranean climate, which is typical for beachfront communities of Southern California. The average summer daytime high is 78 °F (25.6 °C), whereas the winter nighttime low averages 49 °F (9.4 °C). Malibu receives an average of 15 inches (380 mm) of rain yearly, and is often covered with a marine layer due to its proximity to the coast. On average, one out of every three days in Malibu will have some sort of cloud cover until noon.

History

Malibu was originally settled by the Chumash, Native Americans whose territory extended loosely from the San Joaquin Valley to San Luis Obispo to Malibu, as well as several islands off the southern coast of California. They named it "Humaliwo"[11] or "the surf sounds loudly." The city's name derives from this, as the "Hu" syllable isn't stressed.

Spanish explorer Juan Cabrillo is believed to have moored at Malibu Lagoon, at the mouth of Malibu Creek, to obtain fresh water in 1542. The Spanish presence returned with the California mission system, and the area was part of a 13,000 acre (120 km²) land grant in 1802. That ranch passed intact to Frederick Hastings Rindge in 1891. He and his widow, Rhoda May Rindge, guarded their privacy zealously by hiring guards to evict all trespassers and fighting a lengthy court battle to prevent the building of a Southern Pacific railroad line. Few roads even entered the area before 1929, when the state won another court case and built what is now known as the Pacific Coast Highway. By then May Rindge was forced to subdivide her property and begin selling and leasing lots. The Rindge house, known as the Adamson House[12] (a [National Historic Site] and [California Landmark]), is now part of Malibu Creek State Park and is situated between [Malibu Lagoon State Beach][13] and Surfrider Beach, beside the Malibu Pier[14] that was originally built for the family yacht.

In 1926, in an effort to avoid selling land to stave off insolvency, Rhoda May Rindge created a small ceramic tile factory. At its height, the Malibu Potteries employed over 100 workers, and produced decorative tiles which furnish many Los Angeles-area public buildings and Beverly Hills residences. The factory, located one-half mile east of the pier, was ravaged by a fire in 1931. Although the factory partially reopened in 1932, it could not recover from the effects of the Great Depression and a steep downturn in Southern California construction projects. A distinct hybrid of Moorish and Arts and crafts designs, Malibu tile is considered highly collectible. Fine examples of the tiles may be seen at the Adamson House and Serra Retreat, a fifty-room mansion that was started in the 1920s as the main Rindge home on a hill overlooking the lagoon. The unfinished building was sold to the Franciscan Order in 1942[15] and is operated as a retreat facility[16], Serra Retreat.

Malibu Colony was one of the first areas inhabited after Malibu was opened to the public in 1929 and it is one of Malibu's most famous districts. It is located along Malibu Road, westward of the Pacific Coast Highway, on the opposite shore of the Malibu Lagoon State Beach and adjacent to the Malibu Bluffs Park (former state park). Initially May Rindge kept control of Malibu Beach, allowing a few wealthy Hollywood stars to build vacation homes. Nearly a decade later, money woes forced Rindge to sell the land, and the Colony was born. Long known as a popular private enclave for wealthy celebrities[17], the Malibu Colony today is a gated community, with multi-million dollar homes on small lots. The Colony commands breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, affording a spectacular coastline view stretching from Santa Monica to Rancho Palos Verdes to the south (known locally as the Queen's Necklace[18] and the bluffs of Point Dume to the north.

Malibu Bluffs Park ownership changed hands in 2006 after the California Department of Parks and Recreation transferred the park's 93 acres control to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy[22], which in turn sold a 10-acre parcel to the city. That 10 acres consists of baseball diamonds, soccer fields, and the Michael Landon Community Center. Formerly known as Malibu Bluffs State Park, Bluffs Park is the 50+ year[23] home of Malibu Little League[24] (MLL), once the largest youth team sports organization in Malibu. (That honor was wrested in the 1990's by Malibu AYSO[25], a youth soccer organization that shares park space (practice fields).) For over 20 years, the State Parks had tried to kick out Malibu Little League's baseball diamonds and tall baseball fences, with the intention of returning the land to its native wetlands and vegetation.[26] A rider to a California state law was written specifically in the 1950's to allow baseball, with its attendant field accoutrements, to continue being played in the state park.[27] Several generations of Malibuites worked to keep Malibu Bluffs Park for baseball and soccer.


Natural Disasters

Malibu backs up onto a wilderness countryside, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area[28]. Various elements coelesce to create a recipe for natural disasters: the mountainous terrain, at least three large, deep gorges and canyons, where seasonal water causes vegetation growth, arid, hot Santa Ana high winds, a naturally dry topography and climate that creates abundant combustible material, and a plethora of oxygen to fuel the fire from the adjacent Pacific Ocean.


Wildfires

From November 2 to 11 1993, Malibu experienced its largest fire in history when ? acres burned[29]. Two fires were raging simultaneously, one ravaging most of central Malibu/Old Topanga and another larger fire north of Encinal Canyon. Three lives were lost and 739 homes destroyed in the central Malibu/Old Topanga blaze. xxx acres were torched in the north Malibu fire, with zero lives taken and few homes lost in the less densely populated region. Los Angeles County Fire Department officials announced suspicions that the fire was started by arson[30].

Mudslides

With fires raging through Malibu periodically, the countryside is depleted of vegetation that retains the soil during periods of heavy precipitation. The resulting disaster is mudslides, where wetted earth and water moves quickly down mountainsides, or slices of mountainside come pouring down.


With the 1993 wildfire stripping the surrounding mountains of its earth-hugging chapparal, torrential rainstorms in early 1994 caused a massive mudslide near Las Flores Canyon that closed down the main artery, Pacific Coast Highway, for months. Thousands of tons of mud, rocks, and water rained down on the Pacific Coast Highway like it was a sluicebox. The destruction to property and infrastructure was exacerbated by the narrow contriction of the road at that point, with beachside houses buttressing the highway with little or no frontage land acting as a buffer to the mudslide.[32] Another large mudslide occurred on Malibu Canyon Road, between the Pepperdine University campus and HRL Laboratories LLC, closing down Malibu Canyon for two months.[33] Yet another behemoth slide occurred on another main canyon road, Kanan-Dume Road about one mile up the canyon from the Pacific Coast Highway. This last road closure lasted over a period of many months, with Kanan finally fixed by the California Department of Transportation (Cal-Trans)[34] over a year after the road collapse.


Geography

Malibu is located at 34°1′50″N, 118°46′43″W (34.030450, -118.778612)GR1.


According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 261.5 km² (101.0 mi²). Thus, Malibu is one of the largest cities in California and the United States in terms of land and water area. 51.5 km² (19.9 mi²) of it is land and 210.0 km² (81.1 mi²) of it is water (the city boundaries extend three miles into the ocean). The total area is 80.32% water. Malibu has a population density of 632.9 persons per square mile of land area.

Malibu's dry brush and steep clay slopes make it susceptible to fires, floods, and mudslides. Poor grading practices and over-irrigation or leaking pipes exacerbate the tendency for landslides.


A common and deeply-ingrained misconception amongst many Californians is that their coastline is uniformly north-south. Around Malibu (and Santa Barbara) the coastline runs almost entirely east-west, as does its main artery,Pacific Coast Highway. While traveling northbound on PCH through Malibu, one is actually traveling west. Likewise, the Pacific Ocean is due south and the inland Santa Monica Mountains are north. The result of this is many, not all, of Malibu's beaches actually face south.

Carbon Beach, Paradise Cove, Escondido Beach, Surfrider Beach, Broad Beach, Pirate's Cove, Westward Beach, Zuma Beach, and Trancas are places along the coast in Malibu. Point Dume forms the northern end of the Santa Monica Bay, and Point Dume Headlands Park affords a vista of stretching to the Palos Verdes Peninsula and Santa Catalina Island. Directly below the park, on the western side of the point, is Pirates Cove, named for rumrunners during prohibition who liked the secluded beach for offloading their cargo. Because of its seclusion, Pirate's Cove is now used as a nude beach. On the eastern side of the point is "Little Dume", an excellent surf spot which is accessible only by an unmarked trail below Wildlife Drive which has a locked gate. Surfers often paddle out from Paradise Cove to the area when the waves are breaking. Santa Monica Bay is an arm of the Pacific Ocean in southern California. ...

Like all California beaches, Malibu beaches are technically public land below the mean high tide line. Many large public beaches (Zuma Beach, Surfrider Beach) are easy to access, but such access is sometimes limited in some of the smaller and more remote beaches. Although access to most all Malibu beaches can be obtained after a bit of a walk, the issue of expanded public access is continuously addressed and debated by the City.

  • Heal the Bay, a non-profit organization for environmental advocacy, was formed in 1985 to protect Santa Monica Bay, which extends from Malibu's Point Dume along the entire coastline of Malibu past Santa Monica to the Palos Verde Peninsula. At the time, raw sewage was being spilled from a City of Los Angeles Hyperion Sewage Treatment Plant[51] (i.e., water treatment facility) directly into the bay, a violation of several environmental laws. Protestors were mobilized on many fronts, and after extensive media coverage, the City of Los Angeles agreed to comply with the Clean Water Act.[52] Heal the Bay holds an annual Coastal Cleanup Day, where hundreds of volunteers walk the beach and surrounds and pick up refuse. Heal the Bay serves many important functions, including issuance of an "Annual Beach Report Card"[53], that alerts surrounding communities whether or not a beach is safe for water use. In 2007, Heal the Bay worked with the City of Malibu and Los Angeles County officials to create a new water treatment facility[54], located in central Malibu near the old civic center, for cleaner waters draining into Malibu's Puerco Beach, off of Puerco Road from Marie Canyon. This will end Puerco Beach's ranking as one of the three worst beaches in California for clean water.[55][56]
