Great place for photography in Laguna?

I will be in Laguna for a long weekend and am looking for some great places nearby to do some nature photography. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi Jennifer,

It's easy to find good locations for photos in Laguna. However, if by 'nature' you mean that you're looking for more than our gorgeous, cliff-strewn coastlines and dramatic sunsets, then try the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park which has trails in our coastal hills and a good chance of spotting wildlife:

If coastal photography is of interest, also consider going up to Crystal Cove State Park for more of those stunning views and beauty in an area with fewer people and no buildings.

There are other places that aren't as nearby, but you can click around on the site above to see if those might also have the environment you're looking for.

Hope you have a lovely trip, LagunaGrrl

The beach in back of the Montage Resort is very nice and fun to photograph. It is set up on a bluff with stunning views of the coast. I thought the rock formations down on the beach were really cool also, I have some photos posted on this site of time there this past December. Have fun and welcome to the travel forums! :)

What about the 1000 step beach? I have done photos there before because of the rocks .

Woods Cove beach is picturesque. So is the beach at the end of Pearl Street. Heisler Park is also beautiful.

Diamond Street beach is gorgeous. Or, walk along the coastal walk north from Main Beach all the way up to McKinley (I think that's the name) - you'll get some astounding views. Inland, the Laguna Lakes & Canyon have hiking trails.
