Paradise Cove: Visit the Best Beach Cafe In Malibu


paradise cove vist the best beach cafe in malibu

I have always wanted to visit Malibu, since I was a teenager. I finally made It there, this past June. It was everything I've seen in pictures and more!  Malibu  is just 3o minutes west of Los Angeles. The city is known as "21 Miles of Scenic Beauty. It is situated along the Pacific coast highway, a long stretch of dreamy beach scenery.


Palatial homes sit suspended on the edge of tall cliffs, a mile up from the beach. Most of them, I'm sure inhabited by movie stars and other entertainment professionals. I was with my friend Joanie, on the trip to Malibu. On the way back to L.A we traveled through the Santa Monica mountains. I was on the edge of my seat as we navigated the tall canyon & hairpin curves-but oh what a view!

PARADISE COVE

There are several beaches along the Malibu coast, but we only had time for one. My friend convinced me that Paradise Cove was the spot ! If you only have a short time to spend In Malibu, I highly recommend visiting the cove.

The highlight of the day: visiting the Paradise Cove Beach Café!

Breakfast with a view- yes please! Not only are the views dreamy of the cove, but the food was superb! This dining experience was definitely one for the books, and here is why:

 DINE INSIDE OR OUT: WITH STUNNING BEACH VIEWS

Wiggle your toes in the sand, as you eat breakfast with the sunrise : or sit inside. Either way, the scene in front of you is sure to please. The sand patio with umbrellas for cover, is where we chose to dine. It was a bit annoying getting sand stuck in my sandals, but so worth it. This is the best beach dining , with relaxation on order all day long!

DELICIOUS CUISINE WITH HUGE PORTIONS

There were so many yummy breakfast options to choose from, all of it sounded fabulous.  I could not believe my eyes when my meal was delivered to our table.  The portions were huge. My eyes got big as saucers, and I wondered how I was going to eat it all ! Also, the cuppa jo was good til the last drop!

A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY FRIENDLY BEACH

Paradise Cove is a great place for family or friends to enjoy the beach. We were only able to stay for a few hours. We arrived about 9 a.m. and this time of day was perfect, the beach was not crowded at all.

The water was the most beautiful light aqua color, I've ever seen at a beach. I heard the waves here can be ferocious at times, a surfer's delight for sure. There is equipment to rent if you are brave enough to try it, ha count me out! I would like to learn to surf someday, but in a place with baby sized waves.

The only drawback about this beach: you have to pay to play.  The parking fee is 35.00 unless you eat at the café. If you do decide to dine, then the parking is only 6.00. However you are limited to a stay of 4 hours.

Four hours was plenty of time to eat, take in the panoramic views, and look around the beach.  Next time, I want to get a hotel nearby and stay longer.  I hope you enjoyed the tour of Paradise Cove!

WHAT TO WEAR

Malibu like most CA beaches, has a casual laid back vibe. When it comes to dressing for the beach, I say wear what is most comfortable for you and your lifestyle.  Some peeps are comfortable wearing their suit all day long, and others prefer to be covered up. 

I love this aqua colored beach cover up. It wears great as a dress out in town as well!  I found it last summer at my friend's boutique in Milwaukee: check out Free Bird Style FB for the chicest outfits for all seasons. A striped dress in a stretch knit, is also a great choice for the balmy beach breezes.

  14. This is such a coincidence since this week I wrote my Ultimate Bucket List for Los Angeles and included Paradise Cove even though I have not been. I know it is kind of a classic here in LA, so, I have to make it there one day. Your photos look fantastic. Malibu really lives to the hype.
