Malibu Cove Colony is another gated community featuring luxury beachfront homes. This area is popular amongst surfers for the breaks that develop at the sandy beaches. Malibu Cove Colony is located south of Paradise Cove. The lots here are wider than the similarly-named Malibu Colony neighborhood just five miles south. This beachfront community is across the Pacific Coast Highway from Malibu Country Mart and runs along the Pacific Ocean boarding Malibu Point in Malibu Lagoon State Beach.
Due to the location, most lots are only 30 feet wide. As such, the houses here are more uniformly square shaped than rectangles, which give their interiors a more 'open' feel than other homes. Some homes on the north side of Malibu Colony Road have space for tennis courts or small pools. Oceanfront lots do tend to be long and narrow. Beach houses are built right on the beach, elevated upon concrete piles that have been driven through the sand and deep into the sandbanks. For those who desire to have the ocean for a yard this is a perfect option! The draw of privacy and beach front living has made this a popular neighborhood for celebrities.
