Pearl Street  Beach Laguna Beach Beaches


Laguna Beach--Pearl Street Beach includes the popular Arch Rock and the blow hole people come to watch. The earthen colors of the rock contrast in a visual display against the aquamarine color of the Pacific Ocean as shown above.


Pearl Street Beach, Laguna Beach, California--You may think you're visiting some foreign island. A sort of Galapagos display where birds sit on protected outcrops of rocks that jut into the Pacific Ocean are not some foreign land, but are very Californian.  Not shown in the picture, in fact, is a house perched on the cliff above this beautiful beach, one of over 20+ such beaches in Laguna Beach.

Surrounding streets share gems and stone names such as Ruby, Diamond and Agate. And they share the same beautiful beaches that are diverse, yet connected in the winding thread of coves that make Laguna Beach the most beautiful stretch of shoreline in Southern California to visit and enjoy. 


Pearl Street Beach and Arch Rock don't allow surfing...but if you're a body boarder,  body surfing, body boarding, diving, tide pooling, and fishing are all OK. They are permitted and are enjoyed at Pearl Street Beach. Sunbathers, this is a beach you can soak up the rays in, too.  People like to play paddle ball in the Pearl Street Beach cove, too.

What to watch out for at Pearl Beach: In addition to the steps that you must descend, then climb back up, hazardous rip conditions persist and are present. The surf that breaks off the reef to the south is a shore break. Rocky with reefs at the north and south ends of the beach, you have to keep watch on the rock conditions. Many of Laguna's beaches require additional care, and because of that, people seem to do pretty well when visiting these beaches. If in doubt, always ask a lifeguard. Sometimes small rip currents occur to the north of the tower and if you're not familiar with them, beware. Rip currents are the number one danger at California beaches. The pull you away from shore. There is no climbing, jumping or diving off Arch Rock. Those privileges are for the birds.
