Welcome to Broad Beach
Popular, laidback beachfront Malibu neighborhood with breathtaking ocean views

The beach itself makes for a gorgeous walking trail during low tide and offers magnificent ocean views during high tide. Residents in this coastal community tend to live a laidback life of luxury.
Made up of little over 100 homes, Broad Beach is known for its exclusivity and attracts many wealthy businessmen and women. This exclusive enclave is also popular with notable entertainment industry personalities and executives. Many well-known celebrities have called Broad Beach home over the years, including Frank Sinatra, Carroll O'Connor, Danny De Vito, and Sylvester Stallone.
Broad Beach real estate offers a wide range of housing styles, from traditional cottages to modern beachside mansions. Part of the appeal of living in this area is finding a home that suits your personal style.

Things to Do
Broad Beach's main attractions are the plentiful natural landscapes. Residents take full advantage of the local beaches, canyons, and parks. Broad Beach (from which the town gets its name) is technically a public beach, but the best way to get to the sand is by owning a home. Because of its secluded nature, beach traffic is usually low, appealing to locals who enjoy the area’s peaceful nature.
Just a short trip down the PCH is Zuma Beach, one of Malibu's most popular beaches with the best surf well around. If you get tired of the beach and want to put a little pep in your step, head to Solstice Canyon
and take in the beautiful landscapes and wildlife as you hike through the mountain trails.
