  • the lighthouse is interesting and there is a museum you can go into. The best part was an easy hike to the north of the lighthouse with amazing views of the cliffs and ocean. These are lots of flowers...  more »

  • Great place to just look around with your loved ones and enjoy the view. The trail is really nice for a walk and talk and people have lots of picnics and reservations at the restaurant within it. Nice play to take pictures as well if you're into photographing great scenery. :)
  • 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 check out and get a good view of the shore line and ocean.
  • 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!
