Camel Point Laguna BeachCamel Point in Laguna Beach is a silver-wing discovery with all the magic of an unspoiled paradise barely known to local explorers.

For the traveler seeking escape, Camel Point promises intimacy. Dramatic homes hug the rugged cliff overlooking the white sandy shore, but residents seem to retire early as the beach is desolate at night.

With effort comes privacy. The shortest route into postcard-perfect Camel Point is via Aliso Beach at low tide. Walk wide but low rocks south and you will come upon a large, singular boulder on the beach. The boulder, worn by time and weather, is easily climbed even barefoot. There’s something crazy sexy about the boulder, but I can’t quite explain it. A small perch has formed on the top of the boulder, as if designed for a king to gaze across the water. I happened upon Camel Point at a drumming circle under clear full moon light and quickly realized it should have been included in best beaches for sex.

In addition to swimming and sunbathing, beachgoers can snorkel or ride boogie boards. (Be careful swimming, however, because there are no lifeguards on this public beach.) At night, nestle into the sands and peer out into the water to see if you can catch a glimpse of dolphins jumping.

Camel Point may be easier to access from West Street Beach where you can easily walk north at low tide and find it.
