Agate Street Beach Photos and Information, Laguna Beach, California
Laguna Beach--Agate Street
Beach in Laguna Beach is located close to Main Beach which is
surrounded by restaurants and shops, plus it offers many
hotel options for California weekend vacations or getaways.
As you reach the stairs
that descend to the beach below Agate Street, youu'll see some
gorgeous houses with privileged ocean views. Oh, to be able to
afford one of those coastal abodes in Laguna Beach! Life would
be pretty special as you wake to the crashing surf and forever
ocean views. But most of us will never have the kind of money
required to pay the mortgage, much less the property tax on
homes along this road that sell in the millions of dollars. So
tourists and vacationers, why not enjoy the same beaches with a
greater appreciation than those who live at Agate Street? The
novelty must eventually wear off when you face the same endless
blue scene every day. And we, the visitors, certainly don't take
it for granted since we've never had it.
kidding aside, Agate Street Beach is a lovely beach tucked away
close to the action. Pacific Coast Highway is only a block away,
yet worlds apart in many way. Agate Street Beach is north of the
popular Pearl Street Beach and Arch Rock. If El Archo in Cabo
San Lucas comes to mind, this is a smaller version, but
maintains the same shape and principle.
The advantage to Agate
Street Beach in comparison to Pearl Street, which is closest to
the rock on the north side, is surfing is allowed at the reef
here. Black balled (not allowed) between 12PM Noon and 5 PM each
day through the summer months (June 15th-September 15th), there
are other spots along the Laguna Coast to surf. But for the busy
afternoon hours, people get top billing and avoid potential
injuries from those flying boards. Then as the locals say, when
September rolls around, "we get our beaches back." Laguna has
25 neighborhood beaches.
