There are more than 8 miles of coastline in Laguna Beach. The terrain ovaries from flat sandy beaches like that of Main Beach where you can walk from the downtown streets right on to the beach, to shear cliffs that drop right in to the Pacific Ocean. Some of the beaches are all sand, free of rocks and stones while others are mostly rocks.
If you live in Laguna, or spend any time here as a visitor, you will notice that during the winter months some beaches lose a lot of their sand. Victoria Beach is one of them. In the winter, some areas of Victoria loses almost all of its sand, which exposes very rough rocks that can be very difficult to navigate. Always be careful when climbing or walking on these rocks because large swells or waves can take you by surprise and knock you over.
