Broadway head west on Coast Highway, the first traffic signal that you get
to is Cliff drive. Turn south at the street light at Cliff. The street will
immediately veer to the right, find parking as soon as you can! This beach
is in a very comercial area. You will often find weddings and other types
of parties that are occupying the parking. The beach access point is directly

to the beach area. Take it slow and easy and use the hand rail, especially
with dive gear on.

/ Picnic area is a short walk (to the west) down the path. Pictured is a
pay telescope that is available to check out the coast or if you're luck
a dolphin or whale pod. You are also right at the center of the city of
Laguna Beach with resturants and a variety of other types of shops (numerous
art galleries). After your dive come and visit us at Laguna Sea Sports for
a quick air fill, then go and enjoy some of what Laguna Beach has to offer.
at Main Beach is to the west of the staircase that takes you down to the
beach. There are several rock reefs straight out and to the west. The entry
is very rocky and is easier if you go in on the east side of the reef then
head west on the dive. The area is is 10 to 25 feet deep around the rocks.
If the there are waves and surge stay away from the rocks it's easy to get
thrashed in the shallows. There is a submerged pier off of this beach also.
