Abalone Cove and Portuguese Point Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Abalone Cove Shoreline Park and Eco logical Preserve is a federal reserve where grassy 180-foot bluffs offer easy access to the rocky shoreline. The 80-acre preserve extends from Abalone Cove to Portuguese Point and Sacred Cove (also known as Smugglers Cove).
Sacred Cove is bordered by tidepools at both points. From Portuguese Point are magnificent views of Abalone Cove, Long Point, Sacred Cove, Inspiration Point, White Point, Point Fermin, and Catalina Island. The oceanfront park sits at the foot of the unstable and actively slipping Portuguese Bend landslide area."
