Beach Information
Special Comments: Paradise Cove is a beach with a fancy Malibu trailer park that is equipped with ocean views, a nice restaurant, a tennis court, and a basketball court. Paradise Cove is a clean and long beach stretching north and south below beautiful crumbling cliffs. The pier is currently off limits, plans to renovate are in discussion. There is excellent skin/scuba diving and shore fishing. No surfboards are allowed at Paradise cove, however, a short walk north leads you to some great surf breaks.

Pictured is the Paradise Cove Pier at Bob Morris' Paradise Cove Beach Cafe, Malibu Once a haven for nude bathers, this private Malibu beach was the set for a number of movies and television shows, including "Gidget," "Beach Blanket Bingo" and "Malibu Run." Still a favorite for filming, don't be surprised to find locations shoots going on when you visit. The Cove's owner, Bob Morris, requires visitors pay $25 to park at his beach, though the ticket is validated when you eat at this restaurant. You can also park on Pacific Coast Highway and walk down the mile-long driveway that leads to Paradise Cove. The parking fees at Paradise Cove keep the masses away. Stand on the old pier that flanks the south end of the beach and take in the idyllic ocean view. The spectacular sunsets are priceless.

What comes to mind at mention of Malibu and Paradise Cove? On the tip of your tongue should be such names as Barbara Streisand, "Friends" star Courtney Cox and her hubby David Arquett who own a beachfront retreat for a $10 million. Another cast member, Jennifer Aniston and husband Brad Pitt are searching for a home in 90265. Frasier's Kelsey Grammer lives here as does Martin Sheen of "West Wing".

Food/dining: There is one restaurant located by the beach that offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Restrooms: There are restrooms available near the beach and in the restaurant.
