Named after the famous European explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro is a recreational complex established in 1927 and located at the foot of one of the world’s largest breakwaters protecting the Port of Los Angeles. A regional destination for beachgoers, the wave-swept Cabrillo attracts beachcombers to the tide pools in the adjacent rocky shores of the rugged Palos Verdes Peninsula. During spring and summer, onlookers watch the grunion mate and lay their eggs in the outer beach’s wet sand. The protected beach has long been popular with young families who enjoy the calm harbor waters. A public boat launch allows easy access, and the breakwater’s boulders have traditionally attracted fishermen and pelicans. Many of the million annual beach visitors enjoy exploring local marine life at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, Los Angeles’s regional clearinghouse for ocean issues, which began in 1935 as the Cabrillo Marine Museum in the Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse.

About the Author:

Authors Mike Schaadt, the director of the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, and Ed Mastro, the exhibits director, gathered these evocative photographs to tell this beach’s colorful story from the archives of the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, San Pedro Historical Society, Port of Los Angeles, Cabrillo Beach Polar Bear Club, and Los Angeles Maritime Museum.

Review:

Title: What's Hot Cabrillo Beach has its place in the sun Author: Tim Grobaty Publisher: Press-Telegram Date: 12/16/2008 Back in the wee part of the 1960s, our favorite beach, for some reason, was Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro. Of course it wasn't going to be Long Beach. Long Beach doesn't top anyone's list of bitchin' beaches except, perhaps, from people who demand darned little from their beach except peace and quiet and a bit of sludge. We admit, our town's beach has its charms, but none of them include going into the actual water. There lies madness, if not hepatites A through L. And Seal Beach was great, if one dimensional, but that dimensional was a huge one: whompin' surf. Cabrillo had a bit of everything. For us, it was an out-of-town adventure, a great place to go for family get togethers with scores of cousins who could be let loose all along Stephen White Drive, from the park with its exotic hillside trails, down to the beach, to the museum (the Marine Museum, which was held in the decommissioned Bathhouse) and Aquarium, to strolls on the pier and breakwater, some occasional body-surfing - waves and breakwater living in peaceful coexistence, like a guy who lives with a tiger and the tiger never kills him - and the tide-pooling; the place was crazily alive with creatures until people of many cultures began harvesting the pools of pretty much everything but barnacles and rocks - turned out a lot of that stuff was a delicacy in various parts of the world. We have had sea urchin a couple of times and despite our uncanny ability to eat practically anything, the very disclaimer (practically) has its roots in sea urchin. Turns out there was plenty we missed, and you can catch the entire experience that was, and continues to be, Los Angeles' funkiest, hometowniest, least pretentious of all the beaches in San Pedro's Cabrillo Beach, yet another segment of our area's history filled in admirably and completely in Arcadia Publishing's Images of America series. The book, unavoidably dedicated to John and Muriel Olguin, who almost double-handedly made Cabrillo what it is, was put together by Cabrillo Marine Aquarium director Mike Schaadt and exhibits director Ed Mastro, using about 250 images from the archives of the Aquarium, the San Pedro Historical Society, the Port of Los Angeles, the Cabrillo Beach Polar Bear Club and the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. It is probably the most comprehensive and entertaining of all the books we've seen in this sprawling series so far. It hit shelves on Monday with a price tag of $21.99. --Press-Telegram
