Things To Do in Malibu: Fun Frolics & Hidden Gems

Things To Do In Malibu | Near Qwil Apartments

What could be more exhilarating on a hot summer day than driving up Pacific Coast Highway to enjoy a day in the sand and dinner at sunset?  Or linger over a rose-fueled picnic while watching seagulls play above the ways! Here is Qwil Apartment’s Guide to fun frolics and hidden gems right here in Malibu. 


Looking for a hidden gem and a local secret, Moonshadows is the ultimate oceanfront dining experience, located right on Malibu beach. The menu is a mix of fresh seafood and mouth-watering signature dishes with Asian fusion, Italian and American influences. If you are just passing by, visit the Blue Lounge Bar on the patio for a nightcap or to catch the sunset. 

Malibu Road

We have all heard of the major public beaches (Topanga, Zuma, to name a few), but there are quite a few amazing and secluded beaches where you can find your own patch of sand to relax and soak up the sun. Malibu Road is a 2.5 mile stretch of sand with at least 5 public access points. Getting to Malibu Road is easy. Malibu Road starts right behind Ralph’s in Malibu. Then turn North (right) on Malibu Road and simply drive until you see a coastal access point that suits your needs. Qwil’s fan-favorite is the spot all the way at the end of the road. A great spot to bring family, friends, take a swim, or even just walk the beach. 

Rosenthal Winery 

Are you looking to spend the day in Malibu but not exactly a beach day? Look no further. Rosenthal Winery is located just across from the beach in Malibu, CA. A great outdoor wine patio is open till 8 pm on weekdays and 9 pm on weekends. A day or evening filled with live music, food trucks, and $14 wine flights. Also, if you are not a fan of the food trucks, they allow you to bring in outside food too! 

Malibu Country Mart 

You won’t be able to miss the Malibu Country Mart right in the middle of town. The Malibu Country Mart features unique boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants set in a quaint atmosphere. A few of Qwil Apartment’s favorites include a famous lobster roll from Broad Street Oyster Company, Baklava from Taverna Tony’s, and a fresh salad from John’s Garden. Some of the best restaurants in Malibu are right here!
