Laguna Beach, California

Exploring Pearl Street Beach's Arch Rock

Originally added by Ben Lertsakdadet

Great location for viewing the sunset. Awesome spot for paddle boarding, body boarding, diving, and fishing. Short walk down to the beach. Beautiful setting for photos. Tidepool formations.

Pearl Street Beach is a great spot to just chill and watch (and photograph) the sunset with friends and family. Parking for the beach can be found on S. Coast Hwy (the 1) and is meter parking. There is also free, but limited parking available along the smaller streets closer to Pearl Street Beach, such as Agate St. or Ocean Way. To get to the beach, look for stairways located on Agate St. and Ocean Way, which will take you down to the sand.

Pearl Street Beach is best known for Arch Rock, which is easily accessible if the tide is lower than 3 ft. (1 m.). Make sure to check the tide charts before heading out there. Many tide pools form in the cove area just past the arch, which makes it a great location to bring younger children to view marine wildlife.

Quick And Fun

Just down Pearl street so it's close to parking and a great experience to teach friends and loved ones about the ocean

Love It Here

I love this spot. I photograph engagement sessions here a lot. The arch is awesome, and the south side of the arch is really great too. If you plan on walking through the arch, keep an eye on the tide.

Great Sunset

A beautiful spot to watch the sunset! Easy to get too, though parking can be tough if it's a nice day! My only wish is that the sun set closer to the arch!
