Western Beaches Neighborhood

West of Broad Beach, Malibu continues for miles of scenic highway, with beach and mountain views, as it becomes more rural and distant from Los Angeles. On the ocean side, west of the Encinal Bluffs Neighborhood, a string of public beach parks occupies much of the shoreline with some private homes overlooking the beaches.

The only numbered road north through the mountains in this area is CA-23 -- Decker Canyon Road -- that snakes through the hills and canyons to Westlake Village. At the Ventura County line on PCH, just west of Leo Carrillo State Beach and Mulholland Highway, Malibu officially ends. Just beyond is the County Line neighborhood, with Neptune's Net, County Line beach, and homes both on the beach and landside, the last community to the west with a Malibu address.

Continuing west beyond the last County Line homes, you enter Point Mugu State Park offering a scenic drive all the way to Point Mugu, the split rock west of Sycamore Beach.
