Laguna Beach-1000 Steps Beach

Laguna Beach, California

1000 Steps Beach is located between 8th and 10th Avenue in Laguna Beach just south of Pacific Coast Highway. This secluded beach is great for swimmers and surfers. Lifeguards and restroom facilities are present. Street parking is available in the residential areas. It is recommended to cross at the crosswalk as it can be dangerous to attempt crossing elsewhere along the Highway. As the name suggests, there is a long access stairway to the beach which leads to the strand and tidepools. The stairs are steep so please use caution.

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.
