Bee Hives

Edit Spot

I got vibed here just standing and watching one day!
(with no surfboard)

My grandma could get an in&out tube here!! It's THAT predictable!!! Go to Terranea's Catalina Kitchen for a bite to eat after surf, or Nelsons grill and bar and relax on a beer after a scary session.

Additional Info:
Only will break on the biggest Winter swells of the year. A short in&out tube on the good days, but on average days its a short closeout on the rocks. Very scenic location and beautiful surroundings. You can't see the break from the road, so it's a secret spot. Prepare to get vibed pretty heavily if anyone's around. There's a small crew who surf here when it's on. The 1 take off spot is 10ft wide and no insiders. It is a relatively obscure spot, as many people don't even know about it. But expect to be vibed!!!


This wave is actually out front of the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes. You can park at the scenic turnout on PV Drive South and walk down to the beach or Park at the public parking area of Terranea and walk the indicated beach path down to Terranea's sandy beach. Then walk North on the rocks to the tip of the point.
