What makes your store awesome? At Pointe Discovery, we are very proud to support two initiatives: Play with Purpose and Shop with Purpose.
As the home of our activities concierge, Pointe Discovery not only books outdoor adventures for our guests, but also supports local non- profit organizations by planning fun, eco-friendly activities. Some of the Play with Purpose activities include: bag-less beach clean- ups, Sea Lion releases, and local charity drives for food, clothing, books and supplies for local charities.
In December of 2012, we launched our Shop with Purpose initiative, in which we committed to supporting “Give Back” brands in our retail stores. This encourages shoppers to purchase holiday souvenirs and gifts from vendors that give back to our community and all over the world. We are pleased to have TOMS as a featured brand for this initiative.

Your town’s hidden gem? Abalone Cove is a hidden treasure in Palos Verdes. It is nestled between two of our many beautiful points. Daily, you can bridge the gap between the underwater world and the beach during low tide. When the tide is out, it creates small pools of water that are home to a diverse eco-system including hundreds of different types of sea creatures. Any given day you will find Sea Urchin, Sea Stars, Octopus, and Sea Anemone. Abalone Cove is truly an extraordinary experience, naturally inspired!
Where can we find your employees hanging when they are off the clock? Our employees can be found surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, and doing pretty much anything else active at one of our beautiful beach coves or trails on every day off! We hit the beaches of Palos Verdes, or travel east to Redondo Beach to rent bikes and cruise down the strand.
At night we love to meet for dinner at any one of our local restaurants, where we’ll sit outside and enjoy good food, a beautiful sunset, and great conversation! Our go-to coffee spot is actually on property. sea beans has the best pastries and sweets made fresh every morning by our very own bake shop! The Terra-latte is a specialty drink specific to Terranea and is definitely a staff favorite. Try it- Our associates enjoy it ice blended during the hot summer months!
What product has been the most popular TOMS Eyewear this season? The Culver and Lobamba have been our most popular frames this season. Our female customer responds to the Gigi because it is a bit fashion forward, but also has a great message.
