“Spectacular Hidden Treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

A friend of mine took me to this little hidden cove and what spectacular views. I thought the sand was a little course and the waves were strong/rough on one side of the cove. You can easily wade in the more shallow waters if you are more comfortable but if you are a moderate to strong swimmer, you can swim out around a point and through a hollowed out arch/cave and end up at the other end of another cove. Very Blue Lagoonesk!

“Nice secret beach in Laguna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

There are over 100 stairs to get to this beach, but the privacy and view will be worth it. The main beach in Laguna is too crowded for my taste. Watch out for the seagulls. They stole a tupperware container and flew away with it.

“Perfect for pictures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

This is one of the best hidden gems for family photos... local photographers use this spot as a background all the time. Beautiful!

“Beautiful, secluded, unsafe for swimming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

This is a popular beach for locals. Spectacular rocky cliffs on all sides; two small coves within a larger cove. The negative: dangerous cross currents and undertow. When the lifeguard is there, he/she is frequently calling people out of the water. Nice place to soak up some rays and listen to the waves crashing on the shore, but go elsewhere for body surfing, swimming, etc.

Not the best for young children.
