Explore the Seascape at Crescent Bay

Crescent Bay - Search Nearby - Added by Eric Bennett

Cool Rock Formations. Awesome Spot for Seascapes. Island with Seals on it. Amazing Sunset Spot.

If you are in Southern California and want to find a good place to watch the sunset, this is the place. Laguna Beach, Orange County is loaded with awesome beaches to shoot photos of the famous California sunsets. This is one of my favorites because of so many options.

When arriving to the beach, head to the left for some cool rocks and a small cave opening or also to the right there are rocks and a small jetty where you can see out to Seal Island and actually see the Seals hanging out on the rocks. Some of the rocks are sharp, I walk barefoot on them fine, but they also call me "Hobbit Feet" so you might want to bring some waterproof shoes or some strap on sandals that can get wet, allowing you to maneuver easily to different spots on the rocks.

Marine life

This is a great spot to snorkel or scuba. I watched a bat ray and a small leopard shark swim around people's legs.

Great beach to view and capture a Laguna Beach sunset

I'd highly recommend this small beach for catching the sunset. Parking may be difficult as it is street parking in a residential area, but otherwise, it's a great place to relax, walk around, and enjoy the weather on a beautiful day.

Laguna Beach

Hike gorgeous ridgelines, play in the waves, or simply meander through the jaw-dropping coastline, Laguna Beach is a memorable destination for artists and adventurers alike.
