There are over 1000 miles of beach along the California coast. Malibu covers a minor 27 miles of that and Paradise Cove sits on perhaps 1/4 mile of that coast. This little gem may not be a secret to those who reside in the surrounding areas, but its charm and laid back atmosphere are simply irresistible. A day at Paradise Cove lulls a sense of nostalgia on anyone that has spent a day soaking in the sun, drinking alcoholic beverages, and watching the waves pound the sand.
The cove and beach front property was purchased 100 years ago by the Morris family and overnight (20 years later) turned into a small beach front monopoly. A restaurant, a pier, and a mobile home park? Yep you heard me right, Paradise Cove is not only delightful getaway but a place to park your mobile home and stay. These of course aren’t your typical mobile homes, as they are valued at $1.0 million and up, but hey whose counting!
Today Paradise Cove is a California legend/treasure. Lounge in the large wood Adirondack chair with your feet in the sand and a cold beer in hand — enjoy a summer’s day, spring sunset, or a warm winter afternoon. Rent a day bed and waste away reading the hottest novel on the shelf or simply come for dinner to see the sun set over the Pacific.
So whats it take to grab a chair or lay back with a drink in your hand and the sand between your toes? $25.00 to park at the cove, $3 if you spend $20 at the Beach Cafe or Restaurant. The price keeps the crowds away and leaves you an Adirondack to stretch out in.
Bob Morris’ Paradise Cove Beach Cafe is a combination of beach seating, classic seafood dishes and most importantly mounds of Seafood. Ice Seafood Platters complete with Jumbo Shrimp, Alaskan King Crab Legs, House Smoked Salmon, Bay Scallop Ceviche, Marinated Calimari, & Prince Edward Island Mussels for a price that won’t make you cringe, I promise! The Cafe gets crazy-crowded on warm weekends, so make sure to either call ahead or get there early!
