Follow Hawthorne Boulevard to the Pacific Ocean and Ocean Front, where there are hiking trails along the bluffs. To get to the tide pools, you'll need to scramble over a fence and scramble down a path in the cliff.
I am fortunate to live three miles from this beautiful coastline, and come here often to catch the sunset light just right, enjoy the scenery, and explore the tide pools. Waves crash in front of you, and Catalina Island is in the background.
The Palos Verdes Coastline is like Big Sur with great weather. The tide pools are amazing
