Big Rock is a gorgeous Malibu neighborhood named for the beach along its coastline: Big Rock Beach. Featuring breathtaking ocean views from nearly every property in the neighborhood and plenty of things to do within minutes, Big Rock is one of the best places to live in Southern California. Located on the east side of Malibu, Big Rock is set away from the busiest areas of the city, so that residents enjoy a peaceful atmosphere and abundant natural beauty from the ocean and Tuna Canyon. Near enough to access all the dining, shopping, and entertainment of Malibu within minutes, this remains one of the more private and peaceful neighborhoods in town.
