I recently went on an adventure day to find some of the best hidden places in Laguna Beach. Here is what I found!
Victoria Beach Tower- I have been to Victoria Beach so many times without realizing that this tower was here! When you walk down to Victoria beach, go right. You have to climb on some rocks, and it’s not a hard climb as long as you WEAR SHOES! I didn’t. Big mistake. Keep walking on the rock around the bend and you will see a big pool of water, and then the tower!
Thousand Steps Beach Pools- **May be private property** (There used to be a sign that says private property, but I’m not sure if it really is, or they just put the sign up. I still go anyways.) Another beach that I have been to that I never realized had these hidden gems! Make sure to wear shoes you are willing to get wet and plan to go at low tide because you will have to walk through some water at a couple points. Also make sure to check the tides and go at low tide. When you get to the entrance off PCH, you go down the 225 steps that feel like a thousand, and walk to your left. You will enter into a cave that is huge and fun to hang out in. Keep going all the way through. You will pass a small pool but keep going! Once you reach the end of the rocks, you are high up and have to find a place to climb down into the water. We were there at low tide, so it was only ankle deep. You walk across a short stretch of beach, and over a bridge, and you made it! There is a abandoned swimming pool and an abandoned infinity pool. There were only a few other groups of people there, and we were there on a hot Sunday!
Caves- We found this cave because one of my friends has been before and knew how to get there. I wish I would have dropped a pin or paid attention to where we were going because I could never remember how to get back there. It was basically behind some houses, and then you had to scale a little wall. Such a beautiful view, but I can’t help you getting to this one, sorry!
Do you know of any hidden jems in Southern California? I want to about hear them!
