South Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach, California

Southern Laguna has many small sandy and rocky coves that are popular for surfing or diving and can be reached by paths and/or stairs. No fishing here since this area is a State Marine Reserve. These beaches can be accessed from the following street ends, north to south, Cleo St., St. Ann’s Dr., Thalia St. (with wheelchair-accessible viewing platform), Anita St., Oak St., Brooks St. (popular surf spot), Cress St., Mountain Rd., Bluebird Canyon Dr., Agate St., Pearl St., Diamond St., and Moss St. Woods Cove can be reached from a stairway at the 1900 block of Ocean Way between Diamond and Pearl streets. Victoria, Lagunita, and Treasure Island beaches can be reached from the foot of Sunset Terrace and the foot of Dumond Dr., both off Victoria Drive. There is limited on-street parking (source: CA Coastal Commission).

Reminders: There is a 3-day rain advisory after each rain storm, use caution as bacteria levels can increase during this period. The County Environmental Health staff advises swimmers that levels of bacteria can rise significantly in ocean and bay waters adjacent to storm drains, creeks and rivers. Swimmers should avoid coastal waters impacted by discharging storm drains creeks and rivers, and beach users should avoid contact with any runoff on the beach during dry or wet weather conditions. As an extra precaution remain 500 ft away on either side from any outfalls.
