Recreation & Leisure
Laguna Beach is a seaside village of 25,000-plus residents ideally located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Featuring seven miles of beautiful Pacific coastline, Laguna offers 30 public beaches and coves, 19 city parks and 17,000 acres of surrounding coastal wilderness. It's an ideal destination for biking, hiking, walking, cycling, kayaking, fishing and bird-watching. From mid-December to early April, beachgoers can spot migrating whales from our shores.
The Village's beauty, reminiscent of the Mediterranean coast, inspires the hundreds of working artists who live here. Laguna Beach's quaint downtown abounds with art galleries (more than 60), antique stores, unique shops and restaurants. Cultural happenings take place here all year long, including a monthly Art Walk, the renowned Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters, and the events of the Sawdust Arts Festival. We are also home to the Laguna Playhouse, one of the oldest continually operating theaters on the West Coast; and the Laguna Art Museum, a museum of American art with a special focus on the art of California.
In addition to our unforgettable natural and cultural attractions, Laguna Beach offers a perfect base from which to explore the endless possibilities of Southern California. Many golf courses, some with spectacular ocean views, are nearby, as are such world-renowned theme parks and attractions as Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, the historic Queen Mary and so much more.
