After a decades-long battle, Malibu beachgoers can stroll through billionaires’ backyards
From Business Insider: Nicknamed “Billionaire’s Beach” — an homage to the ultra-wealthy residents who call it home — Carbon Beach is a 1.5-mile stretch of sand that sits between the iconic Pacific Coast Highway and the glistening Pacific Ocean in Malibu, California.
Up until mid-2015, the beach was largely closed off to the public. But now, after a decades-long, complicated legal battle between the state and homeowners, its 70-plus residences share their backyard with tourists and beachgoers from sun up to sun down.
We took a walk down Billionaire’s Beach on a recent summer day — scroll through to take a peek at what it’s like to live and play on the richest stretch of sand in the world.
