Have you seen Pirates of The Caribbean? That’s one way to paint the picture of the craggy cliffs, sandy beaches, miles of coastline, and salty coves that reside along the seaside at Palos Verdes. It was a simple decision for Disney to film scenes of Pirates of the Caribbean on and off the coast of Palos Verdes.
