Malibu Lagoon State Beach where Malibu Creek enters the Pacific, is much more than place to spread a beach towel. It's home to Surfrider Beach, heart of the California surfing culture, and a historic wooden pier known for its salt-water fishing and restaurants. Overlooking the beach and the pier is the 1920s Adamson House, built for the last owners of the rancho Malibu Spanish land-grant and on the National Register of Historic Places. Next door, the Lagoon Museum has docent-led tours exploring local history from Native Americans to surfers. It is also good for picnicking, bird-watching and wetland tours.
