Getting to Laguna Beach CaliforniaLaguna Beach is small and there’s only three ways in and three ways out. Surrounded by canyons to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the north, west, and south, Laguna Beach offers a dreamy drive.

You can take the Highway 5 to Canyon Road or 133, and drive through a protected green belt canyon on windy two-lane roads that drop you into the heart of Laguna Beach; or you can drive from Newport Beach south on Pacific Coast Highway which drops you onto Main Beach with a green grass park on the beach; or you can drive from Dana Point north on South Coast Highway on which you will pass quaint shops and restaurants. Either route you choose delivers a world-class view.

At some point on each route, you feel the air change. Laguna Beach’s vibe penetrates you. The sun is somehow brighter, the air is warming, and everything is just different. I am always compelled to take a deep breath when I drive over the hill, as if I wasn’t breathing at all before I arrived.

The nearest airport is John Wayne International Airport, airport code SNA.
