What’s so special about Portuguese Bend? Why are people mesmerized by the location and feel like it’s something out of a story book?
I suppose one reason is the fact that it’s a gated community here in the Southern Los Angeles area and a subset of all Palos Verdes homes which are, unlike any other area of the communities of Rolling Hills, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates, Palos Verdes Estates and the Palos Verdes Peninsula, surrounded by almost 400 acres of protected natural parkland. The Palos Verdes Land Conservancy has created dedicated land which can “never” be built upon, making Portuguese Bend homes the beneficiary of something out of the mid 1900s. With miles of trails for hiking or equestrian use, you will never be bored by the winding adventures you can take
Part of the charm of living here, and this does actually apply to any of the Palos Verdes communities, is that there isn’t anywhere in the county of Los Angeles that geolocically is like what we find here in Portuguese Bend. The fact is that the Palos Verdes Peninsula in recent geologic times was actually one of the channel islands! What does that mean? Well the bedrock formations here are unlike anything found in Los Angeles which has more sandy type soil. Let’s think a minute, isn’t it better to build on rock than sand? I’m no geologist, but common sense answers that question
From Native American times through the Spanish/Mexican era and then in the late 1800s when Palos Verdes was sold through the Sepulveda to the Bixby family and then to Frank Vanderlip, this part of the Palos Verdes Peninsula has always benefited from the most temperate climate as documented by Vanderlip’s meteorologist when he first envisioned Palos Verdes as the “American Riviera”.
And where did the name “Portuguese Bend” come from? Did you know the south side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula was used by the Portuguese whalers from the Azores back in the day
There are various “Zones” within the Portuguese Bend community as the area from about the Wayfarer’s Chappel to approximately the west end of Admirable Drive, is within a building moratorium zone. The reason why there’s a building moratorium is because Portuguese Bend is where the Portuguese Bend Landslide zone and the Abalone Cove Landslide zone exist. That being said, there are zones within Portuguese Bend area in which one may obtain “exceptions” to the building moratorium and in fact if you were take a drive through the community, you would observe new construction. To get more information on the various zones, I strongly recommend reading the information in these city websites
Bottom line, Portuguese Bend is a very, very special place made so by unique circumstances not found anywhere else in Los Angeles. As such, when looking for homes with panoramic ocean views, lots of land, equestrian use or any combination thereof for a price that you would normally think impossible, Portuguese Bend is the place to be. Remember that line in the movie “Field of Dreams” where Kevin Costner is asked, “… hey is this heaven?” And he answers, “… no, this is Iowa…” Well if Costner had ever visited the area around Portuguese Bend homes, he would have said, “No, this is Portuguese Bend!”

Why do we love living here and being owners of Palos Verdes Homes? I've been a resident of Palos Verdes since 1968 attending 6th grade, graduating from Palos Verdes High School, graduating from UCLA and then coming back to Palos Verdes Estates to begin my real estate career in 1980. Talking with thousands of people and many hundreds of clients has confirmed for me what I've always known about owning any of the many fine Palos Verdes homes. We appreciate our strong school district ranked in the top 100 of all districts in these United States, we love our clean ocean breeze swept air, we love our approximate 70+ miles of hiking and equestrian trails, we love our quiet, peaceful, safe cities and bedroom communities and we love the strong sense of neighborhood that exist in the many varied neighborhoods here in Palos Verdes.
