Take an Oceanfront Hike

Arrive nice and early at Terranea Resort on the Palos Verdes Peninsula to fit in a 90-minute hike before 2 p.m.—when the hotel’s Saturdays-only breakfast buffet closes ($38). The Point Vicente trail is an easy-ish beach excursion that leads to a functioning cliffside lighthouse and tide pools. More avid hikers might opt for the Discovery Trails along the verdant shoreline, which reward persistent trekkers with sea caves to explore. Stack the Deck: Swap hiking boots for rentable golf shoes and play nine holes at the resort’s public course ($55 for nonguests). Before driving home, stop at the Lloyd Wright-designed Wayfarers Chapel just up the road.—CHRISTINA WOLFGRAM
