Seagulls are silhouetted against the sun, with the iconic Malibu Pier glistening in the background. A media mogul’s plaintive cry, vainly bullying beachgoers to stay off the public sand, dissipates as crashing waves dissolve into pearly sea foam below. Your pricey huevos rancheros arrive, looking and tasting like a Denny’s Skillet Meal. But wait, isn’t that a shirtless Channing Tatum, or someone who looks just like him, jogging by? Maybe it’s the salty sea air, but breakfast suddenly tastes a whole lot better. It’s just another perfect morning on Billionaires’ Beach.
Discounted valet parking is offered to diners at the Carbon Beach Club, located in the casually elegant Malibu Beach Inn, so make a day of it and enjoy the beach, and check out some of the other walkable attractions such as the Malibu Country Mart and the Adamson House.
