Pt. Dume in Malibu on a Private Tour
California History in Malibu for
Our Private Tour Guests
To add a little spice to a walk with our private Los Angeles tour guests at a favorite southern California beach and surf break we climbed up the promontory above the sand to enjoy the grand view of Santa Monica Bay. Atop the rock is a plaque describing the historic significance of this location. Pt. Dume is on the northwestern tip of the bay and juts out into the channel enough to create a fine surfing destination. Named in 1793 in honor of a Spanish missionary by his friend, English explorer George Vancouver, the promontory is not only an important navigation point for sailors but also for Los Angelenos driving up to Paradise Cove nearby. The promontory is recognizable as they navigate the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu from Santa Monica. While it sounds ominous when you hear it, Pt. Dume is very much a happy and enjoyable destination for anyone visiting Los Angeles. Add Malibu to your places to see along with Hollywood and Beverly Hills on your next visit to southern California.
