Paradise Cove is another name for Thousand Steps beach in Laguna- an idyllic little place if you don't mind the effort. Some collectors of mine treated us to a wonderful dinner and bonfire there one evening! It's pretty rural- like stepping back in time.
There is also a Paradise Cove up in Malibu which is similar to the one in Laguna, only with more celebrities. I happened to see Kevin Bacon running on the beach a couple of times- is that less than six degrees?
