Two days before our trip back home, it was cloudy that Sunday morning and rain was expected that day, however when we arrived at Getty Center, the clouds cleared out and it was bright again as any other LA typical day. Getty Center is a really enjoyable with its stunning exhibitions, unique architecture and especially what I loved most was the beautiful Central Garden and the Cactus Garden, where you could also overlook the city.
After visiting Getty Center, we thought about also visiting Getty villa which was located on the Malibu Coast. However while driving along Route 1, we changed our minds and decided to go for El Matador State Beach at Malibu. When we arrived, we were both mesmerised by the breathtaking coastal view from up above before walking down to the beach. The place was quiet and relaxing, people reading books, seagulls stealing snacks and friends having fun. We strolled along the beach, listening to the sound of waves and waited for the sunset.
While heading back, we made another quick decision to get off at Santa Monica beach for dinner. Although Santa Monica Beach was considered too touristy for many, I still enjoyed the lively vibes, the lights of Pacific Park during nighttime, street performances and music while walking along 3rd Street Promenade.
