"Palos Verdes Drive West-- The prettiest drive on the Peninsula."
If you visit Palos Verdes, it is crucial to take a scenic drive on Palos Verdes Drive West and South. It is one of the prettiest drives in the entire country. This particular area has stunning ocean views. You can sit on the Starbuck's terrace at the Golden Cove Shopping Center and enjoy views of Catalina Island, Point Vicente Lighthouse, and maybe you can even spot some whales and dolphins. Most homes on this stretch have great ocean views, but are very expensive.
