About St. Ann’s Beach in Laguna Beach, California

St. Ann’s Beach is a narrow sandy beach at the end of St. Ann’s Drive in Laguna Beach.

Surfing and bodyboarding are both popular here. At times a lifeguard station will be manned, but don’t swim here unless they say it is safe. The rip current at St Ann’s is considered the strongest in Laguna due to a break in the reefs just offshore. Swim to the side (along the shore) if you get caught in the current as it’s a futile effort to try and swim in against the current.

There are metered parking spots on St Anns Drive and many more a block away on Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1) near the intersection.

St. Ann’s Drive Beach Access is also referred to as St. Ann’s Street Beach like the ten other “street” beaches along this stretch of Laguna Beach.

When you get down to St Ann’s Beach it might be narrow if the water is high at the time. If you don’t mind getting your feet wet you can still walk in either direction. There is more sand to the right at Sleepy Hollow Beach.
