Explore the Tide Pools at Woods Cove

All along the coast of Laguna Beach visitors can find stunning tidepools that only form in this specific stretch of coast. But, the tide pools at Woods Cove may be extra special because they are deep enough to swim in. In the pools expect to find hermit crabs, sea stars, and plenty of sea anemones to house an entire school of Nemos. For those not quite into swimming in the pools try checking out the pools at Rockpile or Diver’s beach. These pools are shallow but still show off all the marine life you’re likely looking for. Just make sure to leave everything exactly as you found it in all of the tide pools around Laguna. The tide pools fall into the marine protected area, meaning taking shells, sand, rocks, or other objects is strictly forbidden. Lastly, keep an eye on the tides. It’s best — and safest — to visit at low tide when the risk of crashing waves is minimal.
