Laguna Beach, California

Catch a Sunset on Victoria Beach

Originally added by Alex E

Relax on California's most private public beach. Then grab a beer and very unique blackberry pizza at Neoploitan.

From the South, head North on the South Coast Hwy after you pass Montage Resort Rd. Sunset will be 0.5 miles ahead on your left. During the summer you want to start looking for parking now, but during the winter you can park right by the stairs to the beach. Turn left onto sunset and take that for about 200 yards to the intersection of Sunset and Victoria. The stairs to the beach are at this intersection. Take the stairs down to Victoria beach. Turn left to enjoy Geoff Island, and relax on the beach. Turn right over the rocky wall near the cliffs to photograph the historic La Tour castle and old swimming pool.

From the North, sunset will be on your right 0.5 miles after passing Diamond Street.

Downtown Laguna Beach is only a couple miles North of Victoria Beach. The area is very beautiful with multiple shops, taverns, and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy. The can't miss location in my opinion is the Neopolitan, South of Victoria Beach towards Dana Point. The Neopolitan has many "off the wall" type of appetizers like their roasted beets, or entrees like the epic Blackberry pizza. Wash it all down with a large selection of draft beers or select wines.
