Welcome to Pacific Palisades
Located between the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Palisades offers stunning coastal views and multiple hiking trails. Ideal for anyone who loves the great outdoors, the ritzy neighborhood is adjacent to Santa Monica. Pass the time by playing volleyball and swimming at Will Rogers State Park, or by heading to the farmers market to pick up fresh produce for dinner. Known for its sense of community and small-town feel, the cliffside community is made up of multimillion-dollar mansions with ocean views.

reflection, prayer, and meditation.
