From Point Mugu to Palos Verdes, there are numerous places to find a piece of quiet and stare out at the big blue beyond.

Tune in to Tuna Canyon Park. This tucked-away parcel of the Santa Monica Mountains between Malibu and Topanga has some of the best ocean views around. Both short and long hikes are possible in this 1,255-acre park. The Pacific vistas from Hearst Tank Mountainway and Big Rock Lateral are jaw dropping.
