Laguna Beach City Beaches Open for Active Recreation All Day on Weekdays and Weekends

All Laguna Beach City Beaches are now open all day on weekdays and weekends for active recreation only. Physical distancing guidelines and active recreation requirements must be observed. Face masks are strongly recommended, and dogs must be on a leash at all times.

If it is determined that an environment is created whereby physical distancing cannot be maintained, the City will consider further limiting beach access or closing the beach until compliance can be attained.

Anyone who requires special ADA accommodations regarding beach access for active recreation may contact the Laguna Beach Department of Marine Safety at (949) 494-6572. Beach wheelchairs are available for public use from the Marine Safety Department (pictured.)

Dining at Local Restaurants is Not Yet Permitted in Orange County

Orange County is still in early Stage 2 of reopening in regard to restaurants, with only takeout and delivery service allowed at this time. Though restaurants may be open in some counties that have received state approval, it is not permitted in Orange County until the County receives a variance from the State to move into the next phase of Stage 2 reopening.

All businesses are expected to comply with the state's directives.

Today the County of Orange requested approval from the Governor’s Office to authorize additional businesses identified in Stage 2 to reopen with modifications.

As soon as the state makes a determination on the County's request, we will let you know.

Until then - What's open? What's closed?

We've compiled a list of City services and facilities that are open (and closed) along with a summary of the state's guidance for businesses, at the link below.
