Paradise Cove had its humble beginnings as a private family retreat along the Malibu coast of Southern California. Up until the 1960s the cove was used as a RV campground. Development of the property into a mobile home community brought in permanent residents along with film crews shooting movies and commercials. Paradise Cove is accessible to the public and visitors can enjoy one of the most scenic beaches in California.
