Pacific Palisades

Welcome to Pacific Palisades

A Sought-After Sanctuary Perched Above The Pacific
Bathed in tranquility and soaked in exclusivity, Pacific Palisades exudes the allure of an intimate and serene coastal retreat. Located in the Westside region of Los Angeles, the Pacific Palisades is roughly a 20-mile journey west from the vibrant pulse of Downtown Los Angeles. 
Established formally in the early 20th century by a Methodist collective, Pacific Palisades became a haven for Jewish intellectuals and artists fleeing the horrors of the Holocaust, evolving into a cherished refuge for celebrities and high-profile personalities seeking solace and privacy. A distinguished close-knit community, it flaunts a small-town ambiance, cradled within a Mediterranean microclimate, undulating terrain, and lush surroundings. The neighborhood’s parkland-rich environment, picturesque hiking trails, stunning 3-mile stretch of coastline, and impressive architectural marvels lend it a distinct charm and allure.
Coined "the Palisades" or “Pali” by locals and surf enthusiasts, this coastal gem spans a 3-mile expanse from Santa Monica’s Sorrento Beach to Sunset Point Beach and Malibu. The coastline's beaches, such as Will Rogers State Beach, Sunset Point Beach, and Ginger Rogers Beach, offer unparalleled aquatic experiences. Amid the Santa Monica Mountains backdrop, the parks and the historic Will Rogers State Park provide verdant retreats. Primarily a residential haven, Pacific Palisades does not draw in throngs of tourists, except those making a day trip to local attractions like the Getty Villa, Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine, or Gladstones Malibu.
Pacific Palisades is a refined and serene coastal residential enclave, studded with sprawling private residences, breathtaking ocean views, and generous park spaces and hiking trails. The Village, a charming “downtown” district, has boutique cafes, restaurants, and shopping outlets. The tight-knit community life is fostered through regular neighborhood events, adding to the local charm.
