Laguna Beach, California

Stand Up Paddleboard Fisherman's Cove

Originally added by Josiah Roe

Easy access to some of the most beautiful coastline in all of southern California.

Fisherman's Cove is a protected beach and cove in Laguna Beach at the bottom of Boat Canyon that is tucked away from the hustle, bustle, and crowds that are often found at other nearby beaches. Further, parking is easily (relatively speaking) found along Cliff Drive.

The beach itself, especially at low tide, is a perfect put-in for stand up paddle boarding and for longer trips sea kayaking the Laguna State Marine Preserve. The cove and the rocks and the reefs that protect it extend well out into the ocean, making it an ideal spot for first time ocean paddleboarders or those taking tours.

Be sure to check local conditions and always practice the principles of leave no trace.
