If you go on a weekend come early. The parking is limited and what we did not like about the parking is that on weekends if you do not eat at Paradise Cove Café parking costs $50.00. That is outrages! You can get your parking...More

I don't mind crowds on a beach but in Southern California there is no need to cram in on a beach so close that you can smell the sweat coming off the people next to you. Add to that the $50 parking fee for the...More

Okay, this used to be a great place to eat and just hang out. But then, greed set in. You are charged for absolutely everything...parking, to sit on the beach, and of course food. It's a tourist destination which means it's crowded. It's expensive and...More

Ever since we found this place, we go. It is always apart of my trip when I visit LA. I love the atmosphere, the outside dining that is literally on the beach. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Cannot say enough great things about...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.
