Malibu has two beach communities that allow you to own acre/s of land starting at Pacific Coast Highway, and running all the way to the beach. Paradise Cove is the most eastern of these areas. Paradise Cove has a few small streets that have groups of homes, and possibly the nicest mobile home park on the planet on the western most end, which has trails that lead down to the beach, but for the purposes of this communities section, we are referring to the multi acre estate properties that are among the finest addresses in Malibu. This area runs more or less between two well known Malibu restaurants, Geoffrey’s on the east end, and Bob Morris’s Paradise Cove Restaurant on the western end. Paradise Cove was historically a boat harbor and had one of Malibu’s two piers until an El Nino storm knocked half of it out in the 1980’s. Many of the visual images of Malibu that are conjured up by the name “Malibu” are from the photography, movies, TV shows and commercials that are shot in this area. It is sheltered from the predominantly westerly winds that blow in Malibu, has rolling picturesque bluffs that usually have direct paths to the beach, and is dominated by large multi acre estate sites. If you are looking for some breathing space, privacy, and still want to be able to own some of the sand that is between your toes, this is truly Paradise. Paradise Cove has a bit of both the “Country by the Sea, and City by the Sea” feel, and geographically is somewhere in the middle of Malibu’s beach communities.
