It’s Hard To Believe this is in Los Angeles

By Keith Kyle,Overlooking the Portuguese Bend Beach Club

When people think of life in LA they generally think of the iconic palm trees, beaches and great weather but they also picture traffic, cars and life in the big city.  There are some secret places that feel more like a tropical vacation than the frenzied life of Los Angeles and the Portuguese Bend Beach Club in Rancho Palos Verdes is certainly one of them. It’s a relatively unknown part of Palos Verdes and the residents are more than happy to keep it their little secret.

When you visit this secluded and private beach it reminds you more of something you would find in deep in Baja Mexico and not of something just a short distance from downtown Los Angeles.

Although there are a few very luxurious homes, the bulk of the properties are beach bungalows that feel more like they would belong in an artist colony than on this prime piece of real estate.
