Welcome to Laguna Beach
Where local art and coastal luxury are fundamental.
Nestled halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles, Laguna Beach is the perfect destination for those seeking coastal luxury. Countless natural tide pools, caves, and other natural phenomena make this an ideal place to explore nature’s wonders.
Once known as Lagona, it was renamed Laguna Beach in 1904. It was created to be an art community and coastal resort, with local art its focal point. Well-known for having over seven miles of sublime canyons and coves, Laguna Beach keeps nature and art lovers alike content and engaged.
From minimalist beach homes to colonial dwellings, adobe architecture to contemporary properties, there are diverse options for homeowners. With a suburban feel and the median home costing approximately $2.9 million, this community is well-suited for upscale inhabitants.
A community-focused, suburban beach town, Laguna Beach is an excellent destination for those who enjoy exploring within their own neighborhood. With so much to do close to home, it is ideal for people who seek beachy vibes and an eccentric, small-town feel.
Laguna is an ideal community for those who work close to home. Though it’s not the most car-friendly, the town is well-suited for walkers and bikers alike. Made up of mostly small families and retirees, it is undoubtedly a great place to find a slice of peaceful luxury.
