Explore Laguna Beach Caves
Orange County › Thousand Steps Beach
Added by Eric Bennett
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.

Laguna Beach Caves
This adventure is one for the books!! Recommend bringing shorts and towels if you really want to explore the area during high tides. Had a blast climbing the rocks, hiking the stairs, and taking photos in the cave. Wonderful spot to relax.
Blue Water, Huge Waves
This is my new favorite beach in the Southern California area. Just make sure to go during low tide if you want to explore the caves! Otherwise it's pretty dangerous. The waves are gnarly in this area.
So my boyfriend and I decided to to do this today thinking it was more of a hike but received some misinformation from one of our mutual friends. I wouldn't recommend this escapade for somebody wanting a full on sweaty hike, it's more suited for a relaxing romp in the waves. Nevertheless, we had a fantastic time! The walk down to the beach was great and we had a super time frolicking around in the surf while exploring some pretty neat caves and mossy tide pools. We also had the joy of witnessing one of the most incredible sunsets I have seen yet!! Kudos Laguna beach for a memorable day.
