Crescent Bay Laguna Beach

Located: Cliff Drive and Barranca Laguna Beach CA 92651

Crescent Bay Laguna Beach is a large beach in North Laguna Beach, California. The main access is on Cliff Drive at North Coast Highway. There is a large walking ramp down to the beach. The two popular scuba diving and snorkeling areas of Seal Rock and Dead Man’s Reef are both offshore of Crescent. You can explore the tidepools at both ends of the cove during low tide. Swimming can be dangerous due to rip tides. There can be parking in the neighborhood or on North Coast Highway. Crescent Bay is located between Emerald Bay and Shaw’s Cove.

Crescent Bay Point Park is located above the north side of the cove. There is no beach access from the park but the views from here are spectacular. This is a very popular sunset watching park.  It’s also a nice place for special occasions.  It’s landscaping and views provide for wonderful photo opportunities.
