Beautiful beach caves with blue, clear water. An awesome place to hang out that's super photogenic and totally FREE!

Explore some beautiful caves right on the beach in Laguna. The stairs leading down to the beach are just off the side of PCH at 9th st. You can park anywhere along the PCH on both sides near 9th st.

Head down the stairs and the main caves are on the left. To the right there are also some small caves that are cool for photos. It's super easy to find. It's also an awesome place to take a date and watch the sunset. The rocks can be a little rough to walk on barefoot so it would be good to have some sandals with straps or something that can get wet and protect your feet.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Overall rating: 

Incredible

Exactly as the description says...amazingly clear water, little nooks and crannies to explore and at sunset, this place is magic. Bring a snack, a blanket, and pick up any trash on the way out.

Caves Off Limits

The caves are now off limits to people. Lifeguard said too many people have gotten hurt/died visiting them. Hefty fine if you try.

Gorgeous Beach

Perfect beach to take in the views. Great whale watching and cool cave to explore.
