1000 Steps Tide Pools - Photo by Sean Pierce

1000 Steps Tide Pools is tucked away around rugged cliffs at the southern end of 1000 Steps Beach. These tide pools are filled with salt water from the high tide ocean water and were built in 1929 by Hollywood movie director Edward Griffith, who lived in the community above the cove. When they were built, they misjudged the tides, so the ocean would come crashing in, filling the pools with sand and salt water. They were later forgotten and abandoned, making them perfect spots to explore. (Laguna Beach, California, USA)
