We're a Beach Town

San Pedro has two outstanding beaches, each with its own natural features and character.

Plus we're close to miles and miles of other great beaches, surfing, watersports, and much more.

Cabrillo Beach has a long expanse of calm, sandy shoreline, protected by the Los Angeles Harbor breakwater. But move just outside the breakwater and you’ll find open waters that are renowned for their great windsurfing and other water sports. This area is known as Hurricane Gulch because of its strong (but not really hurricane strength) winds.
