So raw and beautiful. It was the epitome of serene. It seems impossible to have a bad day while being a part of this pristine environment. The only downside is the traffic both motorized and bicycles. Both of whom are super rude and inconsiderate of...More

The place looks good from afar but it’s far from good. The stench of rotting sea lion corpses is not pleasant but one can at least understand and accept it as natures way. Sorry to say that up close you will find stinky piles of...More

We drove along the Pacific Coast Highway from Redondo and decided to travel up to Palos Verdes to see if we could drive to the top of the cliff. Sure enough, it took a little while, but driving along the road closest to the "water"...More

If you're up for some short hiking trails and beautiful scenery as well as awesome tidal pools to see crabs, urchins and sea anemones then by all means check this place out.... some of the trails are steep but the 2 1/2 year old did...More

A dramatic coastal strip, take a walk, feel the breeze from the Pacific Ocean. But do not come here to find a place for swimming. Drive along the coastal road and view large villas and properties
