Palos Verdes/South Bay Information

Lunada Bay

Lunada Bay, a small town along the West coast of Palos Verdes Estates, sits on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean and the north western edge of the peninsula. Boasting a fountain and quaint, charming commercial district, Lunada Bay gives residents a local market, service station, shops, and restaurants. A larger shopping plaza was originally planned for the area that included an incline railway down the bluffs with bath houses at the beach. When the Great Depression happened, plans fell through and commercial lots were turned into residential ones. Now, streets with “plaza” after their name indicate a connection to the commercial district from the original master plan. A favorite among families, Lunada Bay is within walking instance of all three local schools-Lunada Bay Elementary School, Palos Verdes Intermediate School, and Palos Verdes High School. The eastern section of Lunada Bay border Rancho Palos Verdes along Via Coronel and Via Castilla known as “University Subdivision.”

Bluff Cove is a wide, sweeping bay surf spot in Palos Verdes. Located at Palos Verdes Drive West and Via Monte Mar, the Cove was popular with the redwood paddleboard crew of the 1930s. Also a marine preserve, it offers a rugged element unique to the L.A. surfing experience. Home to porpoises, seals, and sea otters the area generally keeps healthy kelp beds and wind chop to a minimum. The bulge of the Palos Verdes Peninsula blocks all but west and northwest swells creating usually small swells during this summer but several consistent winter breaks. The Cove has three main breaks- Little Reef (up to six feet on a medium to high tide), Middle’s (the main break with up to 12 feet), and Boneyard’s (scattered series of reeds at south end that break erratically, up to 15 feet).
