A small paradise of nature and quiteness after driving the busy roads and overcrowded streets in LA and its subsurbs.

We parked outside and walked a long way along the shore with its impressive cliffs and wonderful birdlife, to an interesting visitors center. With luck and a lot of patience you... read more

We parked outside and walked a long way along the shore with its impressive cliffs and wonderful birdlife, to an interesting visitors center. With luck and a lot of patience you may even see whales from here but I was not that patient. I made nice pictures of birds, plant, bee and ground squirrels all squirreling along as if there...

Not only can you explore the Park, you can go to the best restaurant w/a great view at the end of Hawthorne Blvd w/an ocean view. The restaurant is called: The Admiral Risty. Also you can go to the Peninsula Center Mall half-way up the hill and you must visit the Palos Verdes Library. Up their you must try: Yummy... More

A gradual Descent and Hike back up. Great view of the SeaShore (Nice and Breezy) as you hike down and Hike up. Plan a leisure day if you are living in and around Torrance. A nice place to visit. Cheers.

I'm kind of paralysed since I came to US because I have no car yet. But I couldn't believe there is such a beautiful place near Torrance which is accessible via direct bus (route 344). Shoreline park is a beautiful place to watch amazing sunset. We reached at 5PM and started walking on the park and cliffs. It is so... More

Love to walk the cliffs and see Catalina in the distance. Many times I've seen dolphins and whales. Point Vincente whale center is nearby.

Love this place! Beautiful trails and Jim makes you feel like a real Cowgirl! We are on vacation from Kentucky and it felt like home. Not only is your time spent on the trails but if you haven't rode for awhile he teaches safety and how to treat your horse. Jim makes sure you are comfortable and the horses are... More

My wife and I are always seeking out new places to walk that combine ocean views and scenic landscaping. Yesterday, while driving to San Pedro to visit the U.S.S. Iowa we drove through Palos Verdes and discovered the Palos Verdes Shoreline Park. The park appears to be as far from the typical Los Angeles area as possible, yet is only... More

It's actually called Portuguese Bend Reserve in Palos Verdes. It is just so truly a place to go to if U want a real ocean view. It's a bit of a drive from LAX, but it is really worth it. Palos Verdes also has a brand new Art Center just down the street and it The Waferer Chapel designed by... More
