Separating Laguna Beach from any other location is the vast architectural differences between properties. Varying from small cottages in The Village, to modern or contemporary masterpieces in the hills or carved into cliffs and private coves overlooking the sand. Some of the world’s most celebrated architects have designed homes in Laguna Beach, helping to draw even more attention to the area. Some homes provide private paths from their yards to the sand, but others communities provide residents even more privacy. Inside the gates of Three Arch Bay, Emerald Bay, and Irvine Cove, residents are privileged with an exclusive private beach within their community, accessed solely by homeownership.
