Carbon Beach is situated off the Pacific Coast Highway on the south side of Malibu. The multi-million dollar Malibu estates located on this one-mile stretch of beach share views of Catalina Island, Queen’s Necklace and the Malibu Pier. There are spectacular mountains behind and a near-Caribbean ocean view fronting this Malibu neighborhood.
What Makes Carbon Beach So Special
“Billionaire’s Beach,” as it is nicknamed, is home to a little more than 70 exclusive and luxury Malibu residences. An impressive list of Who’s Who, such as David Geffen, Dr. Dre, Rob Reiner, Larry Ellison and the former Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt, have or have had residences here. These impressive Malibu estates are tucked into the one-mile long, crescent-shaped coastline, with some built right on the sand without the need of a seawall.
This whole stretch of coastline, which extends just west of La Costa to just east of Malibu Pier, is entirely sandy with no rocks. The beach is wide and dry, and the water is pure and unadulterated.
The Malibu Estates of Carbon Beach
Carbon Beach can be said to be the highest value beach neighborhood along the Pacific Coast Highway. It is common for a home to sell for more than $10 million, only to get torn down to make way for a much more grand and luxurious residence.
Home styles range from a grand Tuscan Architectural Malibu estate designed by architect Douglas Burdge to a modern beachfront home, with spacious wooden decks that offer 180-degree views of the coast.
Dining and Shopping
Many locals stop by the Malibu Beach Inn for dinner and drinks. This 47-room luxury boutique hotel has been recently renovated and is situated right on the shore. The onsite Carbon Beach Club Restaurant creates amazing culinary delights from “the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.”
Nearby Carbon beach is The Malibu Country Mart, which features “unique and upscale boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and personal services set in an astoundingly beautiful atmosphere.” There is also the Malibu Colony Plaza and a down-to-earth pizza joint called Johnny’s Pizza.
Carbon Beach is ideal for those who want amazing views, with one of the best beaches in Malibu, fine estates, and nearby fine dining and shopping.
