All reviews pack light great workout cool cave travel light decent shape during low tide street parking flights of stairs parking is limited bathroom facilities the cliff bring water beautiful spot nice walk tide pools exercise beach
If you go up and down these steps a couple of times you will definitely get a good cardio workout! The beach is wonderful as are most beaches around the area. There are not any dining, restroom, etc. facilities but it feels like your own...More
Well, there are not 1000 steps to the beach. We were kind of disappointed as we were going for that. However, I was grateful when we climbed back up. It is steep. The beach is beautiful and not crowded. It’s fun watching the waves and...More
As you might expect....a little easier going down than climbing back up. But really not that bad at all and pretty nice spot to relax and enjoy the ocean views and the amazing properties way up looking down. Parking not the easiest and if you...More
Nice beach for surfing but not too great for bathing. I enjoyed the sun and the sand and the awesome crashing of the waves on the rocks! But there’s a GREAT need for bathroom and step repair. Walked 18 blocks to find a public bathroom.
If you are looking for a legs day, 1,000 step beach access is worth a try. The gorgeous beach at the bottom of (218) steps, not 1,000 makes an inviting post work out relaxing stop.
Do go early in the morning or you’ll be competing...More
We are not from the area, but heard that this beach was the place to go. We are so glad we did!
A little tricky to find, and like most of CA, somewhat hard to find parking. And it’s called 1000 steps beach for a...More

I have not visited the tide pools in Laguna, only those found in Corona Del Mar. All of the California coast is accessible to the public (California Coastal Commision) you need to go when the tide is low. Tide tables are available through several sites, Surfline

Yes, there are plenty of restaurants on the beach. I will suggest what I think will help you. One of the best views, cliff side, is The Cliffs. It is in a village which has a lot of little shops and the good thing about this place is you are right on the cliff over the ocean and the bar has a great happy hour and music. It is great for all ages. There is The Deck, but on certain nights, weekends mostly, it is a young scene with a DJ and it is crowded, not very calming. There is the Casa Del Camino hotel roof with a marvelous roof top 180 degree view of the ocean and the hotel itself was built in the 1920's and renovated keeping that era's integrity, downstairs is their restaurant K'ya which is fantastic and reasonable. I live across the street from Las Brisas which is a famous restaurant that is on the ocean side, has a view of the ocean, but not right on a cliff, like The Cliffs which I mentioned above and the drinks are far more expensive there than The Cliffs where drinks/foods are more reasonably priced, again, their happy hour is hard to beat. If you go further south, further down from the village, there are a couple of other ocean side restaurants with ocean views you should know about. 1. Coyote Grill -great Mexican food. 2. Mozambique -not on the ocean side, but the roof top bar and 2nd floor restaurant -both with views is great. They have music there also. But, if you are watching your costs, you must take advantage of their happy hour dinners. It is from 3:00 to 6:00 Mon. through Friday...$10.00 something for a choice of 3 or 4 awesome meals and wine/beer (including Stella Artois) are $5.00/ea. Mozambique has one of Laguna's best ambience as the interior is beautiful and there are live parrots on site in large, wrought iron cages. I know you are looking for restaurants on the ocean, but please, do not pass up going to the village and having a breakfast or lunch or dinner at The White House -an old Laguna tradition, all locals go there including me, food is great & reasonable, interior is comfortable. There is music many nights -different types and bar is great as well. If you go into the village... away from the ocean, I highly recommend two places that locals go, that are away from the crowds and offer a great atmosphere and good food -Zinc Café and The Lumberyard... Zinc café has a wonderful Jazz trio that plays there Fridays and Sunday evenings starting at 6:00, get there at 5:30 as the place is small and quaint... You will also get a different view of Laguna/the Village that tourists rarely see...in fact, we locals don't like to advertise this side of Laguna as we'd really like to keep it to ourselves to be honest. But if you venture into this part of the village, you will see old Laguna and hear the church bells ring...
Hope this helps, I have invariably forgotten things to give you, but I think I covered most of it. Let me know if you have any further questions and have a great time while here in our town!!!

I am sorry katcamara this is probably confusing there is a little shack at the bottom of the stairs that they use for storage also they have a shower head so you can rinse but when we went there the bathroom area was either closed or they had no bathrooms because we had to drive to the restaurant to use the restroom, hope this helps.
