Brooks Beach is at the end of Brooks Street in Laguna Beach. There is a nice sitting area with railings at the top of the stairs where you can enjoy the view and watch surfers at one of the best surf spots in Laguna. This beach is not for swimming or bodyboarding because of the surfing conflicts but also because of the rocky bottom under the waves Look for tide pools at Brooks Street Beach at low tide. Surfing is not allowed at Oak Street Beach north of here and is not advised at Cress Street Beach south of the rocky point. Head to either of those if you want to get into the water without a board. There are metered parking spots near the Brooks Street access.
