I took my 8 year old daughter to 1000 steps beach in Laguna for the first time today- It was just gorgeous. It's not actually 1000 steps down to the beach; my guess it's probably more like 100-150 steps. The steps themselves are steep and shaded by a tunnel-like mass of greenery-very ethereal. The beach itself is gorgeous: sand is... More

Victoria beach south of Laguna is stunning. Golden sands and crystal clear sea, not too cold either! You can access it by steps or ramp from upper Laguna and well worth a look. There are no beach bars or shops so take plenty of water and your lunch if you p,an to spend the day there.

This is my favorite beach in California. Yes, the stairs take some time but you feel good after the climb! Very scenic, low-key, family friendly beach with great sand and plenty of space for everyone. Highly recommended.

This place is great when you want to sweat and feel the pain. The steps are covered with big trees but still has the beautiful peak of the ocean midway down. At the bottom of the steps is also a nice beach to relax. There is always people walking up and down and gets a little too close for comfort... More

There are 224 very steep steps, difficult for any one. Not in crowded or unspoiled anymore. No where to park and the sign is SO tiny if you didn't have GPS and watch other people go in, your never find it. Suppose that's the point. Not exactly with the effort.

My 14 year old has been begging me to take her here forever...we finally made it! I don't think there's 1,000 steps (closer to 200), but the beach is worth every step. My daughters used their go-pros in the caves and natural pools for hours. It's a truly unique and beautiful place to visit, but I highly recommend you get... More

Stunning views - cliffs and houses, a cave, tide pools and the best part - uncrowded! We enjoyed watching the waves crash on and around the rocks and on the beach. Narrow steps lead you down to this beautiful spot (only 100 or so steps). I think there were more people on the steps rather than the beach, mostly people... More

there isn't much space, the only upside is the beach in which the stairs lead up too, its a great workout nonetheless just not worth the drive if you aren't local.

It's only about 200 steps. It's steep, but definitely doable. The beach is uncrowded, the sunset was beautiful and there is a cave. Enjoy!
