Pretty beach situated below our hotel (Capri Laguna on the Beach), perfect place in Laguna Beach to watch the sun set into the Pacific. Perhaps not the best for swimming due to the rocks in the water but I went for a dip nevertheless!

I lived in Laguna Beach in the early 80's, and this was my favorite private cove to go swimming. It is so beautiful! You feel like you are on your private island!

When exploring Laguna Beach, make sure to visit one of the beaches that line the rocky coast. You will always find great spots to explore.
