Recently, we've been sharing some sea caves with you over at Santa Cruz Island in Channel Islands National Park. Now we head southward to Orange County for a more terrestrial minded experience. 1,000 Steps Beach in Laguna Beach is a small and quiet and sometimes extremely private experience. There's no parking lot--park on PCH--and you do have to climb long stair case that's not quite 1,000 steps, but it can certainly feel like that many.

Down at the end of the beach is a cave you can access by doing some light rock bouldering and only during low tide. Once inside, you can find a mini beach and another cave that requires flashlights.
