“Pay 20$ for what?”
Review of Paradise Cove

Paradise Cove
Ranked #8 of 53 things to do in Malibu

Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

$20 walk in entry. That should be illegal! Its just a plain old boring beach. Definitely a tourist trap. Why not at least lower the price? The water is too cold to swim and the cafe is nothing special. Go further down the road to the public beach you will be more satisfied.

If you are ok with paying $40 to park or $20 per person to walk in (Not a short walk…) get there early. The parking lot fills up on summer days and even worse on the weekends. A great place (once you're in) to make memories with the kids. One of the few places in So Cal where you can have a drink with your feet in the sand. Surrounded by beautiful cliffs and a pretty calm bay, it is the perfect place to play in the water. Zuma Beach can get pretty rough while this area is a bit more protected. Walk down the beach towards Pt. Dume and be rewarded with beautiful views. Typical bar food- good burgers. A bit pricey but, location, location, location...

This place rocks because it is right on the beach, you are literally toes in the sand! Adirondack chairs are available but you can only bring beer or wine outside to use them which we noticed caused a bit of confusion for patrons and kept the beach monitors very busy. None the less loved it! The restaurant and outside patio, again toes in the sand, are very fun! The food was great for my seafood lovers but not so much for myself. I had the bar b que tacos, bar b que and tacos do not go together IMO,and it was very pricey $20 for tacos. The guacomole was really good though! Overall great setting! I loved it for drinks and will go back!

Paradise Cove is a great spot to bring your out-of-town Guests for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the beach with terrific views of Paradise Cove and Point Dume. As one would expect, prices are a bit higher than some other spots and you have to pay for parking. Also, you are not allowed to bring your surf boards into Paradise Cove to surf, which is a bit odd but it's to keep folks from just filling up the parking lot to go surfing. Give yourself some extra time so you can take a walk along the Point Dume coastline.
