NOTE: If you want to add 2000 steps, Melody starts the walk from Point Vicente at 8:45 a.m. and then meets the rest at the Pelican Cove parking lot. Please meet Melody in front of the Pt. Vicente Museum (by the amphitheater style steps. (You can park in the lot behind the museum; then walk around to the front.)
Walking Pelican Cove you will discover a beautiful ocean trail with wildflowers and jack rabbits . You will experience an absolutely breath-taking walk along the cliffs of Palos Verdes with glorious morning views of ocean, bluffs, pelicans, and even sometimes dolphins and whales.
We incorporate socializing into the walk. There's a stop for coffee, drinks, snacks, etc. at the Sea Bean, a delightful spot on the Terranea Resort.
This is truly a wonderful walk to start the day and have as part of your week!
The Pelican Cove Parking Lot is 1200 feet to the west of the Terranea Way/Palos Verdes Drive South intersection. To access the lot traveling from San Pedro, first turn left into the Point Vicente Parking lot, turn around and exit the lot to the right. Go back along Palos Verdes Drive South to the next parking lot (Pelican Cove). From P.V. go past Point Vicente to the next lot. Once you find it the first time you'll be fine. Leave yourself some extra time to find the trail head which is located at the Pelican Cove Parking Lot on the Terranea side. Look for a statue of a Pelican at the trail head.

This walk is DOG FRIENDLY! YAY!
P.S. - We have been enjoying this walk every single walk for at least two years, and one of our greatest joys on the walk is seeing the marine life, and specifically the pelicans perched on the rocks at Pelican Cove and flying in formation along the gorgeous coastline. Let's remember that these pelicans, like so much marine life these days, need our help. Please think about adopting a pelican for $25. Here is the link:
