Emerald Bay Beach is a private beach that is only open to residents of the gated community of Emerald Bay in North Laguna Beach. This exclusive, guard-gated community of approximately 500 homes expresses the many architectural influences of the Pacific. Amenities include volleyball, six professional tennis courts, a community pool & spa, and an expansive park with a clubhouse. Founded in 1929, Emerald Bay was named for the color of the nearby waters. Emerald Bay’s topography ensures that nearly every home boasts glorious views of Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean.
