The Story of Paradise Cove


During the first half of the 20th century, while much of the Malibu coastline developed into the ultra-exclusive community we know today, Paradise Cove remained relatively untouched. When developers finally set their sights on this stretch of beach in the 1950s, the target inhabitants were fishermen. Rather than mansions and manors, the land was modified and zoned to make way for trailers and campers. In the 1970s, the bluffs above the beach were developed to make way for further prefab housing.


Passengers standing on the deck of their Marina del Rey boat rental anchored off the coast of Malibu can easily spot the distinction between Paradise Cove and the neighboring coastlines. Mile after mile of Malibu coastline is capped and pressed by some of the most monumental real estate the LA region has to offer. Paradise Cove, on the other hand, is backed by cozy cottage-like housing. It’s a testament to the cove’s enduring status as an unassuming yet unforgettable LA yacht charter destination.

Whether it’s a one day escape from the big city or a weekend spent exploring the Malibu coast, Paradise Cove has something to offer passengers onboard a Marina del Rey yacht rental. While the luxury accommodations of the chartered yacht might be hard to part with for awhile, the allure of the cove is equally difficult to pass up.

The waters west of the pier are particularly noteworthy for the reef structure and surrounding kelp forests.


Jet Skiing

Several yachts in our fleet easily accommodate the transport of one or more smaller watercraft, giving passengers of a yacht charter Marina del Rey to Malibu  the option to independently explore Paradise Cove. These small watercraft also serve as a great way to move between the shore and the yacht.

Yet the best location for general sightseeing in Paradise Cove is without a doubt the Paradise Pier. Those standing on the end of Paradise Pier can admire mile after mile of California coastline on either side, soaking in a comprehensive view of the Santa Barbara Channel.
