The basics

This family-friendly destination has been popular since it first opened in the 1950s. Over the years, the café maintained its retro vibes while whipping up three meals a day for hungry, beach-seeking visitors. After a meal and setting up your chairs for an afternoon of sun and surf, consider going for a walk along the pristine shore, gazing up at Malibu’s cliffside homes, or meandering as far as Point Dume State Beach.

The Paradise Cove Beach Cafe offers parking on site for a fee, as well as the opportunity to rent shaded daybeds and cabana-style private areas during your visit. The café requests that all guests respect the quiet ambience of the beach and keep noise and music to a minimum.

How to get there

From the Getty Villa head west on the Pacific Coast Highway for roughly 20 minutes. If you are driving directly to the café, take a left on Paradise Cove Road before ending in the parking lot. Otherwise you can find a parking spot along the shoulder of the highway. The 534 bus line from Santa Monica stops about 1 mile (1.5 kilometers) away, at Pacific Coast Highway / Zumirez.

When to get there

The Paradise Cove Beach Cafe is open daily, with public access to the beach from midmorning to sunset. Prices and crowds increase on the weekends, so for a more low-key visit consider a trip during the week. Spaces in the parking lot do fill up quickly so it is recommended to arrive early.
