Have you ever wondered what that beach is just off I-93, just south of the city? That’s Malibu Beach. Or, more specifically, that’s Malibu & Savin Hill Beach (they’re right next to each other, forming a ninety degree angle). The state built Malibu in the 1930s on land filled during the creation of what would become Morrissey Boulevard. In the 1950s the construction of the Southeast Expressway cut off both beaches (and Tenean Beach) from the rest of Dorchester. Past water pollution and decades of general neglect has given Malibu Beach a bad name. Maybe it already had a bad name? It’s given name I mean: Malibu Beach. A minute amount of research led to few clues as to its origin. Perhaps readers could chime in with an answer? Malibu Beach is a sandy beach. In Boston. It gets a thumbs up from me for that. Put down a blanket and grab a book. Do some wading. Break out the summer fun games. Plus lots of parking & a Red Line stop (Savin Hill) really close by. Come by on July 10th for our Boston Hassle Volunteerhang evening beach party 6-9pm. It’s a good place to come meet all us freaks if you’ve ever wondered about volunteering, and maybe roast a marshmallow or two.  If I have my druthers you’ll be seeing even more Hassle parties @ Malibu Beach sometime down the line. However if you only do fancy beaches then forget I said a thing…
