Irvine Cove is a guard gated luxury community in Laguna Beach, California, where residents enjoy the spectacular views, and their own private beach with a playground, showers, and sand volleyball courts.
There are 110 homes in this community, which is located in the northern end of the city. Residents can enjoy a community park, as well as community tennis courts. Homes here are typically single stories, and can go up into the multimillion dollar price range. The beach is shielded from the wind by Abalone Point, where you can look up at the cliff top and cypress trees. Residents typically use golf carts to get around the neighborhood, and there is a cart path that takes you to Irvine Cove Beach.
Situated north of Emerald Bay, the homes of Irvine Cove are on both sides of the Pacific Coast Highway. Many estates have stunning ocean views, and the private park is accessed only by guests and residents. There are actually two beaches in the cove, with the largest one towards the south used more often. Skim boarders and surfers love this area, as well as swimmers, but rip currents can create some dangerous situations. When the tide is low you can go through a rock arch to get to the north beach.
Arch Beach Heights is served by the Laguna Beach Unified School District, with highly ranked facilities such as Top of the World Elementary School, Thurston Middle School, and Laguna Beach High School. The city offers several private schools including Anneliese’s School, Montessori School of Laguna Beach, and St. Catherine of Siena Parish School.
Laguna Beach is also rich in the history of surfing, and still holds the Brooks Street Surfing Classic which was first held in 1955. This seaside resort city is popular for its artistic environment, scenic coves, and mild weather year round. This is the home of the Laguna College of Art & Design (LCAD). The private college offers degrees in illustration, graphic design, painting, drawing, and game art.
