Many homes in this area enjoy excellent ocean and Catalina Island views. Neighborhoods include Lunada Pointe (adjacent to Palos Verdes Estates), Berry Hill, Point Vicente, Warmington Estates, and Oceanfront Estates.

The Golden Cove Shopping Center is also located along Palos Verdes Drive West. The shopping center features a Trader Joes, Starbuck’s, a Montessori school, a gas station, restaurants, and several other small local businesses.

Maureen Megowan PRO This area has some of the best ocean and Catalina Views on the Peninsula. Home buyers often are attracted to this area who like the feeling of Palos Verdes Estates, but want a larger home for the money while still having a wonderful ocean view.
