The area is known for being the home of Hollywood movie stars, people in the entertainment industry, and other affluent residents.

As of the 2010 census, the city population was 12,645.Signs around the city proclaim "21 miles of scenic beauty", referring to the incorporated city limits. The city updated the signs in 2017 from the historical adj=on27 length of the Malibu coast spanning from Tuna Canyon on the southeast to Point Mugu in Ventura County on the northwest.
