  • Very small museum but with interesting info on the natural and man made history of this part of the California coastline. Major highlight is the year round on going whale watching from the back patio. You can access the pleasant seaside trail from the museum.
  • Very lovely view. Watching the waves, gives serenity. Plenty of parking. A nice walk around the park. It can be crowded some times but overall, it is quite nice. Make sure to bring a jacket because it can get quite windy.
  • Nice place to view the ocean and learn about the natural and human history of the Palos Verdes peninsula. Native plants and museum are featured. Volunteers are super friendly.
  • Great view, free parking, picnic tables and grass. The small museum is interesting with some marine biology, geology and cultural/historic displays.
  • One of the most scenic places along CA-1. If you are a whale watching enthusiast or wanting to capture the sun set or just want to take a stroll along the scenic coast, you can visit this place. The center itself has a small met explaining the local fauna. All in all a place that exemplifies the serenity of palos verdes..
