Laguna Creek Beach in Santa Cruz, California

Laguna Creek Beach, near Santa Cruz, is a remote and wide sandy beach with a creek, wetlands, unique rocks, and wild waves. It is located just north of the infamous Red White and Blue Beach that is now closed and the new Sand Hill Bluff State Park which will open in the near future.

The parking lot is located at the north entrance to Laguna Road and Highway 1. At the north end of the parking lot carefully cross the road and look for a trail though tight vegetation. In a short distance it will open up and cross some railroad tracks and then connect to a wide trail (old road) that leads to the Laguna Creek Beach.

The biggest and best part of this beach is the southern section so continue on the loop at the end of the old road until you reach the larger beach next to Laguna Creek. If it’s a windy day, the protected smaller northern beach would be a better choice. Birds are a common sight here because of the lagoon wetlands behind the beach.

Laguna Creek Beach is considered by some to be a clothing-optional area, so be forewarned even though citations can be given.
