Nestled between Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach lies the private seaside community of Crystal Cove. Rugged, unspoiled coastal hills surrounded by breathtaking ocean views truly make daily life extraordinary for the residents of the community. The idyllic enclave is surrounded by over 3,600 acres of permanently protected open space, including Crystal Cove State Park, Los Trancos and Muddy Canyons and Laguna Coast Regional Park, making the living environments feel like a permanent vacation in paradise.
Crystal Cove State Park incorporates 3.5 miles of beach, the historic Crystal Cove beach colony, and over 2,700 acres of wooded canyons and open bluffs, with its offshore waters designated as an underwater park. The park can be utilized for water related activities such as swimming, surfing, scuba diving and snorkeling, as well as land activities including hiking, mountain biking, camping and fishing. Three beach areas below the bluffs include Reef Point with access to two coves, Pelican Point which offers a 3.25-mile trail and Los Trancos, which accesses the historic district of 1930s style homes and cottages. On the southern edge of the park is El Moro, a 2,200-acre canyon with 18 miles of hiking, biking and horse trails.
The residential community of Crystal Cove incorporates both large and custom homesites as well as semi-custom homes. The architecture, crafted by groups of highly respected homebuilders, descends from classic Santa Barbara, Tuscan, Provence and Northern Italian designs, appropriate to the history and coastal topography of the area.
Residents of Crystal Cove take pleasure in utilizing the Canyon Club, a resort-style complex consisting of approximately 6,215 square feet of recreation. The complex includes a club room, catering kitchen/bar, fitness room, card room and dining terraces. Outside there is a Junior Olympic pool, spa, and children’s wading pool, cabana with showers and restroom facilities and a covered pavilion with an outdoor barbecue. Also outside are three tennis courts and one-half basketball court.
The Crystal Cove Promenade is the premier shopping center for its residents and visitors boasting magnificent shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, all of which include panoramic Catalina Island views.
Crystal Cove is part of the prestigious Laguna Beach Unified and Newport Mesa Unified School Districts, both of which excel in academic achievement and proficiency.
