I have been so lucky to get lots of e-mails and suggestions from you all about things I need to see and do while we spend our three months here in Los Angeles... I especially have been relying on Megan (from Across The Pond) because she knows the city like the back of her hand and has given me some great suggestions on what to do.....including heading to Malibu to Zuma (beach, that is). It is a fantastic and beautiful area--- so clean. And don't worry about the online warnings of "no pets" because there were no less than 20 dogs when we went last weekend. You can do this beach for FREE if you park along PCH, or you can drive in and pay to park for the day-- but free parking is only a mile away, so get some exercise and save your money! Once you get there, you will see a HUGE rock formation called Pointe Dume. There are usually always rock climbers here, and if you go around it there is a hidden little beach called Paradise Cove. So beautiful and so worth the 25 minute drive from LA. We were fortunate to be there past sunset and HOLY TOLEDO BATMAN, the sunsets were incredible. It honestly didn't look like real life. It was amazing. Be sure to grab breakfast/lunch or a quick cocktail on the beach at Paradise Cove & then head back towards LA and make a stop at Duke's. We did, and we will be going back! It was amazing! I am going to start with the sunset pictures because...well, you'll see...
|Dinner at Duke's---overlooking the ocean! And the food was AMAZING. I scarfed my fish tacos DOWN.|
At dinner husband got the mango BBQ burger. The burger was cooked to perfection, he ordered it medium rare and it was exactly that. The sweet mango and BBQ combo were awesome. I ordered the BAJA fish tacos and did one grilled and one beer battered. They were both equally delicious and were just the thing to curb my appetite after a day at the beach. We also tried a few house beers, and non disappointed. We also loved sitting outside in the barefoot bar where the heat lamps kept us warm while we watched the last surfers of the day catch waves as the sun went down. This is definitely a must eat at place!
Perfect way to spend a Saturday? Oh, yes...
