The park contains a State Ecological Preserve and taking of protected animals and marine life is prohibited.

There is direct access to a parking lot off Palos Verdes Drive South. Access to Abalone Cove Beach is by a long trail from the parking lot.

To access Sacred Cove, users must walk along Palos Verdes Drive South to one of two trails between Portuguese and Inspiration Points.

Lifeguards are on duty at Abalone Cove Beach during summer hours and weekends only.

The views of the ocean and Catalina Island are spectacular
