Paradise Cove offers beautiful beaches and lovely views. Parking is pricy (about $35 for up to 4 hours) thought.

We were alone there at 9 p.m. - the waves on the beach are very romantic. Food was below expectations though, some mussels closed (dead), some did not smell fresh. The restaurant with such name and every celebrity visiting must still take care of its...More

One of my favorite restaurants in Malibu. The food portions are very large so consider sharing. The atmosphere is fun, and light. There are tables that are directly on the sand which i personally love. There is a full bar and i believe it is...More

Paradise Cove is an enjoyable spot for a stop to enjoy the Pacific Ocean and, if it is open, enjoy the cafe that is on the beach overlooking the sea.

We were there with two kids. The beach is beautiful and clean, lots of families and kids. We were there on a Sunday and it wasn't overly crowded although the parking (which costs 50 dollars btw) was full.

The parking fee is expensive, the bar was extremely crowded and the beach packed. Not worth the time or money when there are so many other nice places to visit.

The views are spectacular. Waves can be strong sometimes so be careful not to leave your children unattended. Seagulls are everywhere and are fun to watch. Thinking of learning how to surf? I saw a couple of people who were taking advantage of the waves...More

This is a great spot but.... the parking is confusing and only $6 if you spend $30 in the beach cafe, which to be fair is very easy to do because it is expensive. The food did look good but we didn't try it. The...More

The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some
areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted

Yes. The fee to park is $6 if you purchase $40+ of food and drink. But you can only stay for a couple of hours. Or you can park all day for $40. Only debit/credit card, no cash, at the kiosk.

Agree with the $20-30 mark, that seems to ring a bell. But neat advise from the other respondent - across the road sounds good for me!!
