Abalone Cove Shoreline Park:
Abalone Cove Shoreline Park features two beaches (Abalone Cove and
Sacred Cove), tidepools, bluff top viewing areas and trails crisscrossing
the area. The park contains a State Ecological Preserve and taking
of protected animals and marine life is prohibited. There is direct
access to a parking lot off Palos Verdes Drive South. Access to
Abalone Cove Beach is by a long trail from the parking lot. To access
Sacred Cove, users must walk along Palos Verdes Drive South to one
of two trails between Portuguese and Inspiration Points. Lifeguards
are on duty at Abalone Cove Beach during summer hours and weekends
only. The views of the ocean and Catalina Island are spectacular.
Barbeques and fires are prohibited at this site. Dogs are prohibited on the beach; however, on-leash dogs are permitted in the upper picnic area and on designated trails.
