Exploring Coves at Laguna Beach

We Cu sisters and Cocofloss made a trip to Orange County, and we discovered a time-stands-still, magical spot – Treasure Island Beach.

The beach is easy to access, and unlike the crowded, expansive beaches characteristic of SoCal, Treasure Island has secluded coves reminiscent of those scattered around Italy. There are tide pools teeming with life, impressive cliffs, and arched rock formations. The landscape was quaint and California-grand all at once. Thanks to El Niño currents, the water was 70 degrees and swimmable!

Orange County is overflowing with culinary delight and diversity, and so we snuck in some amazing bites:

Brodard –Vietnamese in Garden Grove. Their spring rolls and coconut jelly are musts!

Chicken Mason –Mediterranean in Santa Ana. Go for the spicy lemon chicken!

Tsuruhashi –Japanese BBQ in Fountain Valley. The prime outside skirt steak is perfection.

Bear Flag Fish Co. – Still savoring the fresh poke, grilled fish plates, and chowders... Newport Beach.
