My husband and I came from Cleveland to visit our son. Naturally a trip to the beach was high priority since all bodies of water were frozen solid at home. This beach was not groomed at all. Lots of seaweed washed ashore. Rocky sand and...More

If you don't eat at the restaurant parking if extremely expensive so I recommend eating at the restaurant and enjoying the beach at the same time.

Excellent customer service and delicious bbq ribs from the Hot Combo sampler! Wish they had more Rockford Files memorabilia - maybe 2 frames by the til. Great place to have a meal and then walk along the beach!!

People who live in Malibu are lucky: they have access to the perfect place to have drinks on a Sunday afternoon. I thought Las Vegas champagne brunches were perfect, and they sorta are, but Paradise Cove is my preferred place to waste away a Sunday....More

Spent a fun afternoon here with family. Just off of PCH down a windy road. Cute little pier. There’s a restaurant on the beach. Parking is outrageous. $35

Slow service, 20 minutes with no attention, until one waiter felt sorry for us and picked up our table, outside his area. But, on the patio, you're on the beach, toes in the sand, so no worries. And the food, though expensive, was good- generous...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.
