This beach, with its colorful history, is a great place for a family outing. The bluff portion of this beach has metered parking, ample restrooms, children’s play area, picnic tables, and outstanding panoramic views that include Catalina Island. There are also 12 brass plaques placed throughout the bluff describing the area’s rich history. The paved road below leads to the actual beach and more parking below. The large patio to the right is what is left of the Royal Palms Recreation Center. Benches shaded by palm trees make this spot perfect for picnics. To the left of the road, White Point offers some of the most diverse tide pools in Southern California. The area itself is great for fishing, surfing, and scuba diving. Swimming is not recommended due to the rocky shore. With over a mile and a half of rocky beach, 30-acres of park area, and plenty of parking, this beach is one of the County’s hidden gems.

A hidden gem! The San Pedro Hike is mainly only known by locals, with its entry tucked away on the South West point of South Shores. It offers a mild hike along the bluffs (dangerously steep, but there is ample space to walk or even jog as long as you're careful). Hike for 10-20 mins along a very mild path, or continue further for a more intense hike, there is something for everyone. Absolutely beautiful any time of the day.
