Point Vicente, located in the Palos Verdes Peninsula, was originally named in 1790 by Captain George Vancouver.  A lighthouse was built in 1926 to provide safe passage to ships navigating the channel between Santa Catalina Island and the peninsula.  The area surrounding the promontory has several walking / hiking trails open to the public.
