Serene Southern California

A quintessential SoCal getaway, Rancho Palos Verdes offers a range of activities as wide as its stunning views of the Pacific, from surfing and spa treatments to kayaking and even falconry. Explore the area by horseback, play a scenic round at the nearby golf club, or opt for a serene stroll along nearby Redondo, Hermosa, and Manhattan beaches. The area’s great for families, too—it’s only a 50-minute drive from some of the country’s best theme parks, like Disneyland and Universal Studios. Take a day to explore Los Angeles, 20 miles north, or catch a breathtaking sunset over the Pacific on a scenic drive through Orange County.

    The Palos Verdes Peninsula offers more than 30 hiking trails, featuring tiny tide pools, a bounty of birds, and striking sunsets. Terranea’s on-site falconer can teach you about the birds that call the bluff home.

  • Pageant of the Masters

Featured Activity

  • Where Life's a Beach

    In southern California, the beach is always calling. The beach at Terranea Resort is great for kayaking or other water sports, but if you want to lie out or swim, these are our three favorites.

    Redondo Beach. This wide, sandy beach draws thousands of people to lie out, play beach volleyball or just bike or rollerblade on The Strand that runs by it. Redondo is great for a picnic lunch, too.

    Hermosa Beach. Sunbathing is also very popular at Hermosa, and the waters here are a great place to surf and paddleboard. Hermosa boasts a fun bar scene to bookend a day on the sand.

    Manhattan Beach. Manhattan's wide shores have attracted many professional athletes and actors in recent years. This beach is also host to an annual beach volleyball tournament as well as a surfing festival. The entire family will enjoy a day of swimming and sunbathing here.
