Rubys Shake Shack
Take the kids for a drive up PCH and enjoy a malt with a view!

Rubys Shake Shack... O.K.- technically this one’s not actually in Laguna Beach, but who can resist burgers, fries, and a thick milkshake overlooking the historic cottages of Crystal Cove?

If you venture North out of Laguna Beach just a little bit, you’ll find Ruby’s Shake Shack on PCH. Bring the kids and enjoy shakes, sundaes, and malts overlooking beautiful and historic Crystal Cove.

My favorite is the Strawberry Sundae with whipped cream, covered in sliced almonds, and a cherry on top! This is a great way to finish up a day at the beach!

If you want to get a closer look at the beach- you can park at Los Trancos ($10) where you’ll have three options - either walk across PCH, go through the pedestrian tunnel, or take the Beachcomber’s Shuttle ($1) which will drop you off near beachside Beachcomber’s Restaurant and Smuggler’s Cove bar. Either way you choose- you’ll be steps away from the crashing waves at the Crystal Cove State Park.

The historic cottages which add to Crystal Coves unique charm have been converted to a one-of-a-kind vacation rentals called The Crystal Cove Cottages.

People have loved this area throughout history! Find out about the native villages of nearby El Moro Canyon at the Information Center. Make sure to take the kids and ask about the “smuggling” history of the cove!

Rubys Shake Shack Prices
Sandwiches or Hot Dogs range from $5 to $7.50
Shakes, Malts, or Sundaes are between $4 to $5

There is free parking spaces directly in front of the “shack”! But parking is limited to 30 minutes, so if you’re planning on heading down to the beach- you’ll need to park in one of the state park lots.
