Crescent Bay, Laguna Beach
Crescent Bay has quite a bit to offer the diving world, with its cove being about ¼ a mile in length and rocky structures both to the north and south ends that offer a wide array of marine life. This is also the entry point for divers making their way to Seal Rock.
The beach entrance is just west of Shaw’s Cove; from the corner of Fairview Street and Cliff Drive, continue on Cliff going west and follow the street as it loops around, becoming Circle Way (a one way street). Just over halfway around the loop is the staircase leading down to the sand. Park on the street as close to the stairs as possible!
Crescent Bay has restrooms as well as outdoor showers. Please keep in mind that the showers can be a bit of a walk from the staircase if you are lugging all your gear!
