Beautiful views. Historical site. Hard to figure out how to access past the fences. There is a park next door, that has long coastal walking trails, and lots of picnic areas. You can relax in the sun or in the shade under a tree. This area is widely used for whale watching. And the park contains a museum of marine... More

This was a small and interesting museum to visit. We had thought we could see the light house, but it only has certain days in the month when it is accessible. Plan for a 15-20 minute visit to get through the museum.

The light house is gorgeous. We couldn't figure out if there was a way to go inside, but it was fun to hike over to it and see it close up. It's gorgeous and evocative from a distance.

We usually take the trail leading to the Point Vicente Lighthouse. It open to the public for the third (not sure) Saturday each month.

L.A. 南灣半曰遊建議從110HWY 南下到San Pedro Ports O'call 吃午餐, Battleship Iowa 就在附近,可先去逛逛,再去Angle Gate Park 看韓國鍾,再沿至P.V. dr. 到Point Vicente Lighthouse, 可顺便在Wayfarers Chapel停一停看看南加有名的結婚地点.Point Vicente Lighthouse, 的海景更是勝過前几点如能在此看日落,看完再去Rendo Beach 吃晚餐

Beautiful coastal park with great views of the coastline and lighthouse. Ample parking, and interpretive center. Picnic tables are placed under trees to provide peaceful location to picnic or simply read a book. On a clear day you can see down the coast to LA proper. Lovely park. Great place to hang out at sunset.

As a member of a local Club here in Palos Verdes, I was able to visit this old Lighthouse in the most SW part of LA County. It is open to the (general) public only on specific days; a visit to the nearby Point Vicente Intrepretive Center (PVIC), which is run by the City of Rancho Palos Verdes will provide... More

This is such a great walk from the parking lot to the light house. It parallels the coast and the entire view is the Pacific Ocean. It is an amazing walk before sunset. And how often do you get to go to a lighthouse? Took the kids on this walk and it wasn't too hard for them at 10 years... More
