Point Vicente is situated on the southwest point of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Perched on the cliffs, high above the shore, is the historic 67-foot Point Vicente Lighthouse, built in 1926. From the 140-foot scalloped bluffs are vistas of the lighthouse, Santa Catalina Island, and Long Point, the former site of Marineland on the southeast end of the bay. This is a premier spot for observing the migrating gray whales from mid-December through March. The Point Vicente Fishing Access Trail descends the eroding cliffs to the rounded cobblestone beach with tidepools full of marine life beneath Point Vicente and Long Point. The crescent-shaped bay with large offshore rocks is a popular site for scuba divers, surfers, and anglers.
