Word on the Street

The Royal Palms State Beach tidepools (sometimes known as the Palos Verdes tidepools) is a great place to take your kids when you feel like exploring. Be sure to wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and a sense of adventure. The trip may be a little difficult if you have more than one child who would have a hard time climbing around the rocks. But it is a really fun place to visit, especially during the summer. There is metered parking at the top of the bluff where White Point Park is. There is a children's play area at this park and a nice view of the ocean and Catalina Island. However, it is difficult to hike down with little kids so it is better to park your car at the pay parking lot for the tidepools.
