Carbon Beach is a stretch of beach just east of the Malibu Pier that runs along Pacific Coast Highway. It has been an “A” list beach for many, many years, but has been more recently dubbed “Billionaire Beach” after Larry Ellison of Oracle fame began buying up substantial sections of beach homes, and a couple of restaurants, about 10 years ago. Carbon Beach has some beautiful beach homes, nice sandy beach, and is a bit closer to the city, so it has been a favorite of those who need to make a daily commute to work in town. Carbon Beach has good privacy, even with the public access easement that was opened between two of David Geffen’s properties. It is close to Malibu’s center as well, and is an excellent choice for those who prefer the “City by the Sea” feel.
