Laguna Beach, CA – In light of our neighboring cities closing their beaches and the County of Orange decision to close its beaches this weekend, the City of Laguna beach will close all Laguna Beach City beaches on Saturday, July 4 and Sunday, July 5 to help protect the community and slow the spread of COVID-19. 

Although many of our residents and visitors are wearing masks on beaches and practicing physical distancing, the anticipated increase in the number of people gathering on Laguna Beach City beaches or in town over the upcoming 4th of July holiday may create more opportunity for community spread of the virus. 

Effective as of 9:00 a.m. July 4, 2020:

  • All Laguna Beach City beaches and their related access points will close to the public until 5:00 a.m. July 6, 2020.
  • The City is placing closure signage at City beaches and accessways.  For added safety, the Laguna Beach Police Department will increase monitoring and enforcement of these areas and citations can be issued for violators.
  • Basketball and volleyball courts at Main Beach remain closed and all other City basketball and volleyball courts also remain closed.

The situation is fluid and information provided in this statement is subject to change. For the latest information on City services and guidelines for local businesses, please go to
