Don’t overpack. Just bring these warm weather essentials.

These 10 items top our list for what will make your trip to California one to remember.


Travel Towel

Pack your compact, microfiber beach towel for the perfect day at Terranea’s Beach Cove or one of the resort’s four pools. Plus, it doubles as a picnic blanket!


Sun Hat

No trip to Southern California (or poolside selfie!) is complete without the perfect sun hat to help protect your skin from the powerful California rays.


Hiking guide

The Palos Verdes Peninsula is a nature lover’s playground. With over 42 miles of public trails on 1,600 acres, you’ll want a hiking guide to make sure you reach the best vistas. If you forget yours, stop by our Experience Center for a personalized itinerary. Enjoy guided complimentary Coastal Nature Walks, offered daily at Terranea.


Waterproof cellphone pouch

Take your waterproof cellphone pouch while kayaking or paddle boarding to capture photos on the Pacific–you’ll want to capture those moments for Instagram! Don’t forget to use #Terranea.



Prevent sunburn while teeing off on The Links at Terranea’s 9-hole par-3 golf course by reapplying sunscreen every few hours.



As dolphins and whales are known to swim right along the coast, you’ll want your binoculars handy for a closer look. Or take a look through the lens of Terranea’s coin-operated telescopes along our coastal bluffs.


Instant camera

What better way to commemorate your time on vacation than with Polaroid pictures? Don’t forget to share your digital photos with us by tagging #Terranea.


Travel journals

Terranea is the perfect place to find inspiration. Document your adventures by land and sea with a travel journal to relive the extraordinary memories.


Water bottle and reusable straw

Starting in 2019, California officially banned plastic straws at all full-service restaurants. While paper straws are available upon request, you will be protecting marine animals by using a reusable water bottle and straw. Terranea is proud to embrace sustainability initiatives like this throughout the resort.



With all there is to do outdoors at Terranea, your sunglasses will be a quintessential accessory while you’re here.

Don’t worry, if you realize once you arrive that you’ve forgotten something, we’ve got you covered at one of our specialty shops, including marea, pointe discovery, and The Spa boutique.
