Royal Palms Beach
Heading southbound on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, this is one of the last beaches before reaching the port of San Pedro. It's also one of the few on the peninsula with a good stretch of sand. Secluded and primarily frequented by locals, this beach nonetheless provides lifeguards and restrooms, in addition to peace and quiet. Due to the unique land formation—atop which sits the beach, Royal Palms Beach is one of the best places in the entire area to take in a sunset.
This is not where you'd go to put out a towel, lie down and get some sun. It is mostly breakwater rocks/boulders with VERY little/no sand. For the most part it is a parking lot where you can sit in your car and watch the waves. Swimming is dangerous because of the rocks. Parking is 7 bucks with frequent monitoring to see if you've put your 7 in the parking kiosk at either ends of the lot.
You are better off driving a couple miles south to sandy, towel and swim-friendly Cabrillo Beach.
