A Great Sunset Watching Spot at Rancho Palos Verdes

Jan 02, 2011 by Lisa Newton

A few days ago, I went hiking at Rancho Palos Verdes. Although I’ve never been there before, and didn’t know too much about the area where I was going and the day was getting short, I decided to take my chances and check out the place anyway.

Although I’m going to save the actual hike for another story, today, I just want to share one of the best locations for watching the sun set over the ocean:

Del Cerro Park

Located where Crenshaw Boulevard ends, Del Cerro Park overlooks the glorious Pacific Ocean-here’s a few views I was able to enjoy I’d like to share:

Sunset through the Trees

Now, I have another “favorite” place to watch the sunset. Where’s yours?

    Thanks for the post! I heartily agree Del Cerro Park is a wonderful spot to view a sunset. We live near by and have many photos from that spot at different times of day – yours are wonderful by the way. From that location you can also see up and down the coast. We have many miles of trails for you to enjoy in the area.

    Wow the photos looks so wonderful… as if I am looking at the actual sunset in Rancho Palos Verdes. I love watching the sun set. Actually it is quite a meaningful event for me and it reminds me a lot of things about life. I hope someday I can view sunset in Rancho Palos Verdes.
