About Middle Man Cove Beach in Laguna Beach, California
Middle Man Cove is the name given to the beach between Goff Cove and Treasure Island Beach and is below the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach.
This is a small sandy south-facing cove that is only accessed by climbing over rocks from either of those other two beaches. The path from Treasure Island Beach goes through a natural arch in the rock wall. At high tide these access routes can be difficult so don’t take unnecessary risks. And don’t get trapped if you enter the beach at low tide and the water level rises to make getting out difficult. The bluff walls behind the beach are steep so climbing out would be a challenge. Note that rip currents can be present in Middle Man Cove and lifeguards are not.
There is a paved walking path at the top of the bluff and even a resting spot with benches on the point that separates Goff Cove from Middle Man Cove. The views from this path are spectacular.
Park somewhere along Pacific Coast Highway and walk to Treasure Island Beach south of the resort or Goff Cove Beach west of the resort.

We spent the day walking the Laguna Beaches and this one is smaller and a little more challenging to get to, but definitely worth the effort!
We visited this beach briefly and it’s a gorgeous, relatively private cove. We walked over from Treasure Island through the arch, and it was definitely worth going there! Don’t get caught there when the tide comes in, though.
