  • As a member of a local Club here in Palos Verdes, I was able to visit this old Lighthouse in the most SW part of LA County. It is open to the (general) public only on specific days; a visit to the nea...  read more »
  • This is such a great walk from the parking lot to the light house. It parallels the coast and the entire view is the Pacific Ocean. It is an amazing walk before sunset. And how often do you get to go ...  read more »

  • Lovely views from the medium sized lighthouse! There is a small gift store as well, and it's a great place to visit and just look at the ocean. It has very specific hours, only open a handful of days each month, so be sure to check them before arriving. In addition, children under 7 are not allowed. Check out the lighthouse website for more information. Pro tip - this is a fairly well contested Ingress portal, if you're a player, you'll probably see one (or both) factions there while you visit!
  • We went to Palos Verdes for Whale Watching Day. Too bad, there was no whale to be seen. Fortunately, the walk along the Point Vicente Interpretive Center amazed with a breathtaking coastal view of the cliff with lighthouse! It would have even more amazing being there during sunset!
  • This is one of the landmarks for LA. Awesome Ocean Front, whale watching. Good Park. You can get a peace of mind and release your stress.
  • Cool place to visit when it's open once a month.
  • One of the most beautiful places in the area or anywhere. We love to go and watch the surf the whales and ships. Have a picnic, walk the trails.
