Quieter stretches of coastline, removed from the sight of houses and the roar of traffic, are a little harder to find, but are well worth seeking out. These include (in the middle section of Malibu) Malibu Lagoon State Beach, which has a salt-water lagoon favored by migrating birds, a surfing beach, and a pier, as well as Malibu Bluffs Park. If you’re an avid hiker, though, you’ll head a little farther west to a stretch of coastline wrapping around the flat-topped headlands of Point Dume. This southwardpointing promontory, jutting into the Pacific Ocean some 20 miles west of Santa Monica, is a widely visible landmark.

Some storms are followed by very clear weather along with cold winds from the north. This is when you should “seize the moment”: hop in the car, and head for a trail in the nearby foothills or mountains leading to some prominent high point. The views will often stretch from snow-covered peaks to the islanddotted Pacific Ocean. Spring comes on gradually, each week a little warmer (with a heat wave or two tossed in) and a little hazier. The marine layer is thicker now, but superb views are still possible from mile-high summits in the San Gabriels such as Mount Lowe and Strawberry Peak.
