Beat Tidal pools in LA area

We are going to be in the LA area this weekend and upcoming week. Where are the best tidal pools in the area? We have never done this before. Any tips for visiting with 2 boys (6 & 8)?? Thanks!!!

Zuma? For tide pools?

From the above list, I like Abalone Cove. Note the comments about the steepness of the trail to reach the beach.

Another option not listed is the public beach/cove accessible from (and just south of) the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes. There is also a nice public access walking trail that circles the resort. I don't know what sea life has been seen recently, but we've often viewed pods of porpoises from the trail and always pelicans.

Check the tide charts. No point in going at high tide. This weekend it's early morning or early evening. By Thursday, it's late morning.
