Treasure Island

Treasure Island has a little bit of everything, and it’s all gorgeous! There is a walkway through colorful foliage that overlooks the coast, tide pools, and an iconic tunnel that is perfect for photos. It’s located right next to The Montage, making it a perfect location for a surprise. You can plan to go for a beach walk before or after dinner, and pop the question then.

Heisler Park

Another great path with an overlook is at Heisler Park. The park is full of lush greenery and palm trees, complete with a gazebo and views of the beach coves below. It’s conveniently located to shops and restaurants, so it makes it a great incognito plan!

Crescent Bay Beach

Crescent Bay is a beautiful quarter mile stretch of beach situated between two cliffs. It’s a beautiful sunset location, and either side of the bay would be perfect for your proposal. The south side of the bay is home to a palm tree grove on top of the cliff, while the north side has unique rock formations. You really can’t go wrong!

Shaw’s Cove

Just south of Crescent bay you’ll find Shaw’s Cove. It’s one of the more secluded beaches in the area, and is a gem of Laguna. The cove is privately tucked away, making it a one of a kind place in Laguna.

Top of The World

If you’re feeling more adventurous, you know I got you! Top of The World has plenty of trails to choose from, and stunning 360 degree views. It’s the perfect spot for those who love to hike and explore together.
