Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach boasts over nine miles of pristine coastline.

Welcome to Laguna Beach

Picturesque Southern California town and coastal living at its finest

One of California’s most picturesque beach cities, Laguna Beach boasts over nine miles of pristine coastline. The dramatic topography includes hidden beaches, seaside coves, tidal pools, underwater caves, and ocean bluffs. Designated in a Marine Protected Area, the coast of Laguna Beach is free from boating and fishing to help conserve this unique ecosystem. And its natural scenic beauty doesn’t stop there. Laguna Beach is also home to 20,000 acres of protected wildlife habitat offering endless recreation for outdoor enthusiasts.

Laguna Beach offers a variety of living spaces to fit different lifestyles. Many homes are situated on the hillsides, surrounded by wooded forests, and have amazing views of the surrounding landscape. Closer to the city center, luxury condominium complexes come with resort-style amenities. But what Laguna Beach is famous for are the oceanfront villas and hillside estates along the coast.

The dining scene in Laguna Beach is known for fresh, innovative, and upscale cuisine. At the Pacific Edge Hotel,
The Deck is a local favorite for handcrafted cocktails and fresh seafood. It’s one of the few restaurants that are situated right on the beach, so it’s a very popular spot for watching the sunset. 
Right next door, Driftwood Kitchen specializes in ocean-to-table dishes, including Maine lobsters, steamed mussels, shellfish platters, and swordfish sandwiches. Meat and vegan dishes are also on offer. With floor-to-ceiling windows, diners get breathtaking views of the Pacific with every meal.
