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.
Street Beach is located at the end Pearl Street, just a block away
from Pacific Coast Highway. Located south of Main Beach and
the downtown concentration of shops and galleries, Pearl Street is
among good company. 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.
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.
