Shaw’s Cove in Laguna Beach, California

Shaw’s Cove is a small sandy locals beach tucked away below homes in Laguna Beach, CA. There is a public entrance to Shaw’s at the intersection of Fairview Street and Cliff Drive one block from Pacific Coast Highway. From there a long stairway descends to the beach. Visitors should be respectful of the nearby home owners and be careful to not block driveways when parking on these backstreets. Tide pools are exposed at both ends of the cove during low tides. When exploring these tide pools don’t touch or take anything as this is a State Marine Conservation Area. Scuba divers and snorkelers frequently enter at Shaws Cove and scuba classes are even taught here. Swimming and body boarding are popular activities here too. Unfortunately, like many of the beaches nearby Shaw’s Cove Beach is mostly wet at higher tides. There is an area of flat rock to climb on at the south end of the beach, but avoid this area completely when swells are present.
