Rancho Palos Verdes Beach
Rancho Palos Verdes Beach is an approximately 1-acre stretch of rocky and sandy beach located beneath the Trump National Golf Course. The city acquired the beach in 2011 through the golf course's project entitlements. While the water contains rocks and prolific seaweed, and is not considered a swimming beach, it has pristine tide pools which can be viewed when the tide is low. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer.
Parking is available in 4 locations:
- Along Ocean Trails Drive
- The dedicated public parking lot located to the east side of the clubhouse
- The parking lot on the west side of the clubhouse
- The public parking lot at the terminus of La Rotonda Drive
Public restrooms are available above the beach outside of the Trump Clubhouse. The beach is accessed by the Sunset Trail and Sunrise Trail, both accessible through Founders Park.
