Rockpile Beach is the southern beach of Heisler Park in Laguna Beach, CA. Rockpile Beach is in a south-facing cove with rocky outcroppings at each end. At high tide this narrow beach nearly disappears, but when the tide is out excellent tide pools are exposed. Bird Rock is a large rock offshore at the east end of Rockpile Beach. Beyond this eastern point is the Main Beach of Laguna Beach. Access to Rockpile Beach is easiest at the middle of the cove from the park near Jasmine Street.
