Brooks Street Beach, Laguna Beach, CA Beach Information


surf-iconLaguna Beach -- Brooks Street Beach is a surfing beach and is not intended for those wanting to swim or body board. Situated between Oak and Cress Street beaches on the south side of Main Beach and downtown shops, the beaches in this region appear to be wide open with few, if any visible rock formations. The entire bottom of Brooks Street Beach is a rocky reef with rock exposure during low tides, however.  Surfing can't be finer than this surfing enclave of Laguna. The heart of surfing culture is two beaches north at Thalia Street Beach, and also at Oak Street. For surfing gear, Thalia Street and PCH corner has a home-bred surfing supply store selling surfboards, wax, wetsuits and surf fashion apparel at Thalia Street Surf Shop. Of course there are many other surfing shops in town, so you can shop around for the best deals.


Extreme caution should be used when entering or exiting the water at Brook's Street Beach. Like most Laguna beaches, you must descend a set of steps to reach the beach. These beaches aren't accessible to many handicap individuals with ambulatory disabilities, but because of the locations with little or no direct parking, and the sheer number of such beaches in Laguna (over 20), it seems unlikely that they ever will become huge beaches for attendance. Most are susceptible to tides, as well. Wheelchair bound people are best off at Treasure Island Beach near Montage Resort, or Main Beach. 


When looking out to the blue-green Pacific Ocean and blue sky, the Brooks Street Beach setting is very inviting and relaxing, and makes for good photos as seen above. The woman is taking a picture of herself with the ocean in the background.


As for surfers, a solid south swell can generate some long lefts that start breaking all the way out at Second Reef. For locals wanting to watch, the surfing is great. Tourist and travelers passing through love to stop and soak up the ambience of Brooks Street.
