Laguna Beach is so popular for engagement photos and
it is easy to see why! Between the cliffs and golden sun
and perfect crashes of waves, you can’t go wrong.
Further, into it, Victoria Beach doesn’t disappoint either!
First of all Pirate Tower is incredible! It is
definitely known for being one of the most
unique must-see spots in Southern
California. Standing right against a cliff in
Laguna Beach it is an impressive site.
Believe it or not, it has very little to do with
pirates and more so to do with the French
and style of the tower itself. It was actually
built at the same time as the house that is
above it on the bluff and was used as a
means for getting down onto the stretch of
sand below, now known as Victoria Beach.
For anyone wanting to get to Pirate Tower expect to drive about
an hour and a half (assuming you live in Los Angeles or San
Diego). I actually flew in from John Wayne and drove straight
there and it was about the same amount of time for me too!
