Directions
Directions to Cress Street Beach   From Broadway turn left heading east on PCH. Cress street is a little over a half a mile down PCH and the next light after you have past Thalia street. Cress street is not too difficult to find because there is a traffic light at Cress street. The picture shows Cress street and the building that you should look for to mark the right turn onto the street. You will be making a right hand turn onto Cress street so make sure that you give yourself an opportunity to get into the right-hand lane on Coast highway.
Parking
Parking at Cress Street Beach   Parking at Cress Street Beach is very limited as is seen in the picture. In fact there aren't more than just couple of parking places on the street. You are also competing with several hotels on Cress street for parking. There are parking meters to pay, you feed them 1 quarter for each 15 minutes and there is a two hour limit before you are supposed to move your car. There is also an alley way on both sides of Cress street but parking on the alley is very scarce. Please don't park in someone's driveway though. The Laguna Beach parking enforcement is one of the fastest and most efficient that I have ever seen. If you park in someone's driveway or you don't keep the meter fed and your car moved you will get a ticket.
Beach Access
Beach Access at Cress Street Beach   Beach Access at Cress Street Beach is via over 57 concrete steps, I don't know exactly how many because the sand was covering up the bottom portion of the stairs. The beach area is wider at Cress street than the beaches between Thalia and Brooks streets. There are nice sandy area's on this beach that can be used to place any extra equipment that you may have.
Facilities
Facilities at Cress Street Beach   Facilities at Cress Street Beach are limited to the bench and trash can that are pictured here. They are located in the middle of the stairs that lead down to the beach.
Diving
Scuba Diving Cress Street Beach   Cress Street Beach has an exposed reef very close to the shore. The reef is great for diving and snorkeling. The depth is about 15 to 25 feet around the reef and has a lot to see. This beach is more exposed to the waves and the diving and visibility are much better on days where the water is flat. This beach is a great diving opportunity. There may be some surfing in this area also so, be careful!
