Malibu is a small California city of only 19.8 square miles and 12,645 residents. Yet Malibu is known worldwide as a city that typifies the image of Southern California. Local signage indicates that Malibu has 27 miles of scenic beauty, but when the city incorporated in 1991, it encompassed only 21. Having 21 miles of idyllic California coastline and only 19.8 square miles for the entire city makes Malibu a narrow city, hence why most of the city’s residents live near the beach. The greater Malibu area is much wider and includes many who live outside the city limits along the canyons and roads that separate Malibu from inland areas to the east, beyond Topanga Canyon.
The Census reports that Malibu and surrounding Malibu and Topanga Canyon areas are over 90 percent White and 87.4 percent of this White population is non-Hispanic White. The Hispanic population accounts for 6.1 percent of the residents, 2.6 percent are Asian, and the remainder is a combination of different races.
There are 5,267 households and 6,864 housing units in the city. Over 70 percent of the housing is owner occupied and 72.3 percent of the residents live in these owner occupied homes. The remainder are rental units.
The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District manages the educational system in Malibu. The district has three elementary schools and one high school. There are several private schools in the area including Colin McEwen High School, New Roads School, St. Aidan’s School, Our Lady of Malibu, and Calmont. Pepperdine University is the single higher education institution in the area located just outside the city limits.
Malibu is a city that fights to preserve its small town atmosphere. It has world famous preserved beaches and a substantial amount of set-aside reserve and State park areas to the east. Malibu is home to environmentally conscious organizations such as the Surfrider Foundation and Heal the Bay.
Several events each year help raise money for the local economy and charities. These events are for both residents and tourists, thus helping to diversify the natural attraction the area has to surfers throughout the year. The Malibu Chamber of Commerce holds the Malibu Arts Festival every July. The Malibu Nautical Triathlon helps to raise money for the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles each September. The Malibu Kiwanis Club holds the Annual Malibu Chili Cookoff and this event, combined with the natural attractions of Malibu can bring hundreds of thousands of visitors to the area over the Labor Day weekend. In 2007, there were a record number of 800,000 Labor Day weekend victors to the area. Each November there is the Malibu International Marathon and every year the Malibu International film Festival celebrates worldwide contributions to film.
Beyond these major events, the City of Malibu has activities for all residents ranging from lecture series through organized athletic activities for children and adults. The master list of these activities is published by the City every quarter in an activity newsletter. Each quarter the newsletter contains over 30 pages of details on the activities in the city. From local e-waste clean up events to art exhibits and the details on how to participate in the numerous city clubs and organizations. Using this newsletter as a guide residents can always find something to do, some way to be involved, or when and where to meet others with similar interests.
Over the years Malibu has been the filming location for countless music videos, television series, and movies. The bands and singers that have filmed all or part of their music videos in Malibu include Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Linda Ronstadt, Shania Twian, Britney Spears, and Janet Jackson. Television series that have had Malibu film locations and/or story lines and themes include Two and a Half Men, Hannah Montana, Goosebumps, and the Rockford Files. Movies that have incorporated Malibu include Iron Man, Planet of the Apes, and Malibu’s Most Wanted.
Along the 21 miles of coastline Malibu has a number of public beaches including Topanga State Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway where it meets Topanga Boulevard, Surfrider Beach with Malibu Pier at 23000 Pacific Coast Highway, Point Dume State Beach near Westward Beach Road, Nicholas Canyon Beach at 33850 Pacific Coast Highway, and world famous Zume Beach near Heathercliff Drive. There are many more beaches in the area, some easy to access and others more difficult as the access points are regularly illegally blocked by residents that want to discourage visitors from the beach area between their homes and the ocean. In California, all residents have a legal right to any beach up to the median tide line. Though in Malibu it practiacally takes a private investigator to find the beach access points that have been covered.
There are two main parks in Malibu. The first is Malibu Creek State Park on Las Virgenes Canyon Drive and Malibu Canyon Road. Malibu Creek has year round water as it flows from the Santa Monica Mountains. Activities in the park include watching wildlife, horseback riding, fishing, and hiking. The second park is Solstice Canyon Park. Solstice Canyon Park is a beautiful state reserve that gives visitors a break from the beach to enjoy mountainous nature, waterfalls, and wildlife. Solstice Canyon Park is located off Corral Canyon Road.
The history of Malibu starts with the Chumash tribe of Native Americans. Evidence of the Chumash can be found dating back thousands of years with their tribe stretching from Northern Los Angeles County, which includes Malibu, up through the San Joaquin Valley in Northern California. The Chumash called the Malibu area “Humaliwo” which translates to English as “the surf sounds loudly”. In the Chumash language, the “Hu” at the beginning of “Humaliwo” is nearly silent; leaving the “maliwo” spoken which lead to the name being converted to English as Malibu.
The first Europeans in the area was likely those that were on a ship headed by Juan Cabrillo in 1542. Cabrillo reported stopping in a natural harbor in the area to go to land for fresh water. Further contact is not documented until the Spanish included the area into a land grant in 1802. The Rancho Topanga Malibu Sequit land grant included 13,000 acres and was given to Jose Bartolome Tapia. In 1891, Frederick Hastings Rindge purchased Tapia’s 13,300 acres along with another 3,700 acres from other landowners to form his own 17,000 acre ranch which he called Rindge Ranch.
Over the years, Rindge fought against any encroachments from others, including the State from building roads and Southern Pacific from building any rail lines in and around the ranch. He went so far as to hire private security and attorney’s to keep others from even entering the area. To this day Malibu residents are known to want to keep growth at a minimum in an ongoing battle for privacy, security, and to maintain their way of life.
Eventually the State of California won a court battle in 1929 that allowed the State to build the Pacific Coast Highway along the coastal portions of Rindge Ranch. This initiated the parceling of the land into separate lots by Rindge’s widow, May Rindge, so she could sell portions of the area to support her lifestyle. Rindge’s house remains to this day as a California Historical Landmark and is located within the Malibu Creek State Park between Surfrider Beach and Malibu Lagoon State beach. The Malibu Pier, originally built for the Rindge yacht, stands alongside the Adamson House.
In 1926, May Rindge opened a tile factory on the ranch so that she could build an income that would allow her to stop selling lots. Malibu Potteries was the name of her tile plant and at its height employed over 100 people. The tile factory produced an excellent product that is still found in many Los Angeles buildings and homes. The factory continued as a strong business for several years until in the early 1930’s it was partially destroyed by fire. Even though it was rebuilt, sales never recovered due to the impact of the Great Depression.
Up until 1929, May Rindge had allowed some of the elite from Hollywood to build vacation homes in an area of the Rindge Ranch that what would eventually be known as Malibu Colony. In 1929, land and homes within Malibu Colony were officially made available to public purchase when May Rindge was forced to sell the properties due to financial issues. Currently, Malibu Colony is an exclusive gated beachfront community that features an incredible view of the Ocean and California coast.
After prolonged battles with the Los Angeles County government over the land use and planning for the area, Malibu residents voted to incorporate into a city in 1991. This allowed residents direct control over limiting growth and thwarting the planned expansion of the Pacific Coast Highway. Residents wanted to preserve their small isolated community and incorporation was the only way they could find to ensure long-term local control, independent of County governance. Unfortunately for the City of Malibu, local control was not enough to stop the forced expansion of sewer capacity and other infrastructure in the area that the State determined was necessary for health and safety.
Just as May Rindge experienced fires in both her tile factory and the second home she never completed, the Serra Retreat, all of Malibu is prone to Wildfires. Some of the more famous and destructive fires include the following: the Malibu Colony fire of 1929 that burned 13 homes, the Newton fire in 1956 that destroyed 100 homes, the Liberty fire in 1958 that took 74 homes, the Wright fire in 1970 that destroyed 403 homes, and the Old Topanga-North Malibu fire that destroyed 739 homes. As if wildfires were not destructive enough, the aftereffects make the Malibu canyons susceptible to mudslides. Lastly, the area is also close to the San Andreas Fault, which exposes it to more intense earthquakes than areas further from the fault.
