Hidden along the coastline of South Laguna Beach, California, you'll find an idyllic sandy stretch. Though it takes some effort to get there (or shall we say, around 265 steep steps), once you arrive it's totally worth it. After all, you'll be hard pressed to find a better spot for beach volleyball, skim boarding, or just lounging around in the sand.

Flanked by massive cliffs on each side, to the south end is a cave that marks the entrance to Paradise Bay, a beach with two private hidden pools. Basically, it's Laguna's best kept secret, and we sent our videographer Austen Paul there to capture it all for your viewing pleasure.
