Not your average beach experience...

This is definitely a must visit EVEN with the crowds, and chaos. It certainly is a better visit midweek while people are working for lunch. Weekends are insane, and expect a long... read 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 this place!

A great place to park and walk along the beach. Not a lot of people walk the stretch going southbound. It is lined with private residences, but you can walk along the water's edge. Beautiful location.

This area is a pay to park beach front ($50) with an over-priced restaurant. If you're looking for a beach to enjoy in Malibu you somewhere free and open. This one is kinda closed in and quite expensive. It is definitely very pretty, but there are lots of people and not a lot of room. Unless you're wanting to a... More

I love the food and atmosphere. We make the trip out to Malibu whenever we're in Los Angeles. I love the Paradise Shrimp and Red Crab Chop Salad the chocolate cake for dessert is as tall as a skyscraper. The drinks and beach are great also..

I thought it was good. Not the greatest but for ocean front Malibu dining, come on . You are paying for the experience. It's not outrageous probably 60$ for a couple unless you are drinking. I say go and sit in the sand and enjoy your dinner!

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
