Paradise Cove – Malibu, California

Pin It


Beachfront Restaurant Malibu

It’s unusual to find a place on the beach in California that has a easy, casual vibe, but that’s what you’ll find at Paradise Cove Beach Cafe in Malibu, California near Los Angeles. It’s the only restaurant in Malibu right on the sand with its own private beach & cove. It’s Malibu’s Paradise!

Susan and I sat in the adirondak chairs 15 feet from the shore, drinking Coronas and eating cheeseburgers, and it was a perfect end to a L.A. weekend. The food was fine, the beach dining was self-serve and the vibe was mellow. The view was pure heaven.

Star struck? Well Paradise Cove is the where lots of movies, TV shows and television commercials have been filmed. I could imagine myself as Gidget, catching a wave with Moondoggie. The pier is the one where Jim Rockford fished. Over the years we’ve also been the featured film location for The OC, Baywatch, Charlie’s Angels, Sponge Bob Square Pants movie, American Pie 2, Alias, & more.

    I lived in Southern California for 9 years and never knew of this place. We met old friends for dinner here. I was not sure I was going in the right place, because if I recall, it was a strange steep road down. But when we got there, my breath was taken away. Great food, incredible view and we saw a whale. The kids played on the rocks while we drank Margaritas with our toes in the sand. Hard to beat this one in So Cal.
