"Big Sur without the 5hr drive"

When I want to get out to enjoy the beautiful coastline, I love this adventure to Abalone Cove and Terranea Resort in the beautiful city of Rancho Palos Verde. This is one of the nicest and most picturesque ocean coastlines in all of So. California. The scenery here is very similar to Big Sur - but without the five-hour drive. This tour is also excellent for kids as we will attempt to go during low tide in order to explore the sea creatures in the tide pools and to explore the hidden grotto.


We will start the tour at the only ocean front resort in Los Angeles walking the grounds/trails and having lunch at a restaurant that over looks the pacific ocean. From there we will make our way over to Abalone Cove (5 min drive) where we will have a moderate hike down to the ocean. If it is low tide we will have the chance to explore the tide pools and a grotto.
This adventure will end at sunset as we hike back out of the park.
