A leisure two-mile loop trail will take you around the lagoon, through tide pools and on to Malibu Pier. At the pier you’ll find beach equipment rentals, harbor tours, restaurants and a surf museum. Grab a bite at the pier or picnic on the beach. On the way back visit the Malibu Lagoon Museum or check out guided tours of the historic Adamson House.
