Surf, sand, and Angel's Gate in San Pedro

Sweeping ocean views and a relaxed surf vibe makes San Pedro a dream Californian destination.

Book a San Pedro vacation rental overlooking the ocean and have access to San Pedro's 5 beaches.

Things to do

Meet the grunions and the sea life scene in San Pedro

A San Pedro vacation rental is a great base for family adventures. Visit the USS Iowa, a battleship-turned-museum docked in the Port of Los Angeles. A must for history fans, the 45,000-tonne battleship served in World War II and the Korean War. A maritime museum since 1990, it's open to the public every day. Take the kids to get up-close-and-personal with a variety of sea life at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium. Shake fins with a ray in the touch pool tank, and meet the grunions, a rare breed of fish that come ashore to lay their eggs.

Activities

San Pedro is all about sun, surfers, and sunken cities

Life in San Pedro revolves around the beach, and with 5 to choose from, you can visit a different one almost every day of the week. The LA surf set usually favor Cabrillo Ocean Beach, which sees plenty of good breaks. Swimmers and sunbathers should stick to the harbor side of the beach where the ocean is much calmer. Grab a picnic and head west towards Point Fermin, and at low tide you can see the Sunken City of San Pedro, the remains of a small neighborhood devastated by a landslide nearly a century ago.
