About Cress Street Beach in Laguna Beach, California

Cress Street Beach is a secluded little beach at the end of Cress Street in Laguna Beach, CA. A stair leads down to a small sandy cove with homes above it on the bluff. A large natural rock wall to the north and steep bluffs create a sandy pocket beach to enjoy. Offshore are rocks that waves crash upon. The largest is officially named Halfway Rock. South of here is Mountain Road Beach and if you climb over the rocks to the north you’ll walk in front of homes on Brooks Street Beach with access at Brooks Street. Cress Street Beach is known to have a strong rip current frequently so be very careful if playing in the surf and only swim if you are strong and know what to do when caught in a rip.
