Solromar is an small unincorporated community on the south coast of Ventura County, California, United States, located on a narrow coastal terrace along Pacific Coast Highway. The community lies amidst some of the most striking and diverse coastal terrain in the Ventura County.[2](p91) Just upcoast from Leo Carillo State Park, it is the first beach community north of the boundary with Los Angeles County and the City of Malibu although the area's addresses use the Malibu zip code. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has found a 0.9-foot per year (0.27 m) erosion rate for the shoreline with major erosion occurring during the winter months.[3]

County Line Beach Park lies in-between portions of the residential areas on the ocean side of the highway. A popular surf spot mentioned by the Beach Boys in their 1963 hit song Surfin' USA, the beach is also popular for scuba diving and freediving with easy access, abundant kelp forest, and reefs.

California native garden and Monarch Butterfly Waystation were construction as part of the MariSol subdivision.[4]
