Palos Verdes Estates Shoreline Preserve is a rocky beach and blufftop park in the city of Palos Verdes Estates in southern California. The bluff top trail meanders through the park and access to the beach is by steep, rugged trails down the bluff.
The secluded beach has excellent tide pools during low tide and in the southern area there is remnants of a shipwreck at Palos Verdes Point next to Lunada bay. Tide pooling, beach combing and walking are popular activities in this 130 acres of undeveloped stretch of land and there are footpaths that lead from the overlooks to the rocky shore.
From the cliff edge there are incredible views of the Bluff Cove, the Catalina Island, the Channel Islands, beach cities along the Santa Monica bay to Point Dume. The place is a great area to watch migrating whales besides the rich ocean views and lovely shoreline with interesting tide pools and rock formations.
The beach runs 4.5 miles along the coast and there are scalloped blufftop parklands and adjacent submerged offshore land. The beach is a great place to do some hiking and walking besides some great views of the beach and waters from the cliffs and adjacent areas.
