(City of Palos Verdes Estates)
Parking and overlook at 1300 Paseo del Mar just off Palos Verdes Drive West.

Located at the north end of Palos Verdes Peninsula, this is part of Palos Verdes Estates Shoreline Preserve. The overlook provides a view of Bluff Cove and the coast area of the Santa Monica Bay. A line of rocks belonging to California Coastal National Monument is at the north end of Bluff Cove. These rocks are the surface expression of underwater ridges and reefs. The cove is a wintering area for shorebirds such as willets, marbled godwits, and plovers.
