Just south of Main Beach in Laguna Beach, California is a lovely park and beach area that was once only a private oasis. Treasure Island Park (named for the 1934 movie Treasure Island) was a private beach accessible only to divers (and the mobile home community that resided there) until the Montage Resort opened its doors. The entire expanse was then opened to the public—much to the joy of residents and visitors alike.
The current park has been built to encourage everyone to relax and enjoy their surroundings. Paved walkways, ramps and stairways to the beach can be found throughout the park. Families out for barbeques, couples on dates and solo travelers all mingle on the pristine beaches and parklands. Joggers roam through while others rest on bench adorned cut-outs enjoying the view of the ocean.
They spared no expense in creating an inviting retreat. Filled with plants, flowers and statues there is no end to the beauty you will find here—if you can tear yourself away from the ocean views long enough to go exploring. You won’t be sorry that you did.
You can choose to park at meters above the park, or use the underground paid parking that opens up to one of the park pathways. Public bathrooms are also available next to the parking lot. Beach showers are available for a quick clean-up before heading home. Access to the beach and park areas is free.
