Lower Malaga Cove (west of Palos Verdes Drive West) is within walking distance from the bluffs and trails down to the water and is home to the former MalagaCove School which is currently being renovated to house the school (0 comments)

Palos Verdes Estates does not have residential street lights. Tennis courts and pool areas are also restricted.
