The Palos Verdes Peninsula is a landform and a geographic sub-region of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, within southwestern Los Angeles County in the U.S. state of California. It is located south of the cities of Torrance and Carson, and is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the west and south, and the Port of Los Angeles on the east. The peninsula contains a group of affluent coastal cities in the Palos Verdes Hills, including Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills and Rolling Hills Estates. The affluent hill cities on the peninsula are known for dramatic ocean and city views, distinguished schools, extensive horse trails, and high home prices.
Portuguese Bend is one of the most geologically unstable areas in the world. Constant shifting of the soil (approximately 1/3 of an inch a day) and rock slides mean that Palos Verdes Drive South, the main road through the bend, is under constant repair.
