Abalone Cove Shoreline Park is located in Rancho Palos Verdes. It has two beaches Abalone Cove and Sacred Cove. There are tidepools, a State Ecological Reserve and about 5 miles of trails. There is a foot path from the picnic area on top of the bluff near the parking lot, leading down to the beach. As you are facing the ocean the left trail is the one that is not too difficult. During the summer lifeguards are on duty at Abalone Cove Beach. Barbecues, fires and dogs are prohibited at this site.
