Near the geographic center of Malibu, a little under four miles west of Malibu Canyon Road, is Malibu Cove Colony Drive, a left turn across PCH if you are facing west, then bear left again to this road. Malibu Cove Colony Drive runs from the east side of Escondido Creek to a dead end under the bluffs, just west of Latigo Shore Drive and the Tivili Cove condos. There is no connection. This small, tree-shaded private street runs parallel to and at the level of the beach, well below PCH that runs across the top of the bluff between Escondido Creek and Latigo Shore Road. Escondido Beach is just to the west, across the creek.

Malibu Cove Colony entranceThis private road, guard-gated community is composed of larger, upgraded beach homes, lined up edge to edge to maximize use of the beach frontage. Although homes were originally built here in 1957, the current housing stock has typically been remodeled or rebuilt since then with high-end architectural designs. The exclusive and private nature of the community with its exquisite beach has attracted celebrities such as Halle Berry and Bruce Willis who have owned homes there. The same attractive factors have pushed prices up with several sales above $7 million reported in 2005.

An active Homeowner's Association represents Malibu Cove Colony neighborhood interests.

There is a public access gate for the beach on the east side of Escondido Creek, next to the first house on Malibu Cove Colony Drive. There is no parking for public visitors on the private street, only limited parking on PCH.
