Arch Beach Heights is one of the earlier hillside neighborhoods in Laguna Beach. A community with a very Mediterranean feel, in both home style and scenic wonder, Arch Beach Heights was somewhat of a late-bloomer on the Laguna Beach home market. Many homes are designed to take advantage of the gorgeous views, and smaller lots comprise most of the homes in this area.
