Malibu’s name comes from a Native American word, Humaliwo, which translates to “The surf sounds loudly.” The area was once part of a 13,000 acre Mexican land grant which was passed on intact to the Rindge family in the late 19th century. After decades of work to protect the land and prevent its sale, May Rindge began to sell off parts of the original parcel in the late 1920s. Malibu Colony, the first area of private homes, was opened to development in 1926 and is still considered one of the most exclusive and desirable parts of Malibu.
