Thalia Street Beach is used almost exclusively by locals of all ages who are into surfing and skimming. This is a surfing beach and is not for use by swimmers or body boarders. Swimming is permitted south of the beach (past the surf flag) at the northern end of Anita Street Beach. It is located down the stairs below Thalia Street Surf Shop.
The best surf spots in town break over rock reefs and while other cities might have more famous breaks, Laguna Beach—with all its hidden coves and craggy outcroppings—offers endless variation.
