The White Point Nature Preserve is a 102 acres area of re-established coastal sage scrub habitat, hiking and handicap access trails, and a new Nature Education Center overlooking the Pacific Ocean, located in San Pedro. The Center opened in 2010 which serves as a resource for families, students and the public groups. There are miles of trails which hold various interpretive exhibits and surrounded by native plant demonstration gardens and bird watching. Except hiking trails the preserve is packed with wildlife, and local history.  You will also see a huge WWII bunker – a 4,000 square feet of pure concrete. Atop the bunker is an artificial hill that affords some of the most amazing, sweeping Pacific Ocean views.

A beautiful rocky beach great for exploring the amazing tide pools and most of the coastline there is cliff. Beginner and expert divers will find interesting underwater vistas to explore. The area is rich in reefs and kelp around the point is harbors for the elusive critters.

Hours: Dawn to Dusk
Center Hours: 10am to 4pm on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday
