It’s hard to believe that Terranea Resort is located only 30 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. Situated in the picturesque cliffside area of Rancho Palos Verdes, the sprawling resort overlooks the glittering blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, where the Catalina Islands can be spotted in the distance. Terranea sits on 102 acres of pristine land on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, but it only occupies a quarter of the space in order to leave more than 75 acres for outdoor exploration and preservation. What was originally the famous Marineland theme park until the late 1980s became the spot for Terranea, which opened in 2009, and the location has appeared in scenes for Hollywood movies such as the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Aviator, Pearl Harbor and Charlie’s Angels. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is also conveniently situated only three miles down the road from Trump National Golf Course.
