Malga Cove
Near Malga Park, Palos Verdes Estates, CA
Type: Saltwater-OpenOcean
Difficulty: Snorkling, Intermediate
Entry: Moderate Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Bottom dwelling sharks (like swell, angle and horn sharks)Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

An interesting little reef stands about 150yards from shore out from the church at depths of up to 50 where you can find some rock piles and small ledges scattered about in the sand. Although not particularly impressive as a reef, it is a popular hangout for bottom dwellers like horn, swell and angel sharks, halibut, and guitarfish. You may even encounter a bat ray cruising along. The modest reef structures provide shelter for garibaldi, sheep head, senorita wrasses bass, etc.

Free divers may explore the shallow reefs and kelp located directly in front of the pool and church immediately off shore. Divers should avoid this area, the surf can trap you and exits are difficult in scuba gear.
