Thousand Steps Beach Real Estate | Laguna Beach

thousand steps beach real estateThousand Steps Beach real estate sits on one of Laguna Beach’s best hidden beaches. The properties are in South Laguna Beach between Three Arch Bay and the Montage Resort. Thousand Steps Beach real estate is comprised of grand scale estates overlooking the ocean.

One of the many things that makes Thousand Steps Beach real estate so unique is the small Bohemian beach homes on the sand. The City of Laguna Beach rarely grants permission to build directly on the beach, as all California beaches are considered public property. The property lines for the homes on the sand are casually and simply marked by rope with a “No Trespassing” sign.

In addition to homes on the sand, many of the homes hovering over Thousand Steps Beach from the cliff-top have private cable cars running down to the beach. You will not find private cable cars to the beach anywhere else in Laguna Beach.

thousand steps beach real estateThousand Steps Beach real estate starts at about $5.5 million and can reach upwards of $25 million for oceanfront properties. Nearby schools include Monarch Bay Montessori Academy, South Shores Christian Preschool & Kindergarten, John Malcom Elementary, Montessori of Laguna Niguel, St. Catherine of Siena Parish School, St. Anne School, and Moulton Elementary.

Thousand Steps Beach is known for spectacular surfing, skimboarding, volleyball, and snorkeling. Little effort is required to find numerous caves and two arches. Restrooms and shower are at the foot of the staircase.

The cliff-side sedimentary process and rock formations and are impressive. You will find crystal quartz embedded in hardened sand. The patterns of red sand and hard and soft rock are clear indications of major plate tectonic shifts and seafloor spreading. The ridges both in the tide pool formations and on the cliff are worth viewing.

Thousand Steps Beach can be accessed from 9th Avenue and South Coast Highway. Parking is on South Coast Highway, or on nearby streets. The beach access is clearly marked next to the 9th Avenue traffic light. Use the crosswalks to cross South Coast Highway safely. Descend down the 262 steep incline stairs (not 1,000 stairs as the name implies), and walk north or south to view many of the homes on the beach. Because of the hike back up the stairs, many locals use this beach in their fitness routine.
