    Laguna Beach’s name derives from Native Americans and from the Spanish settlers. In the 1800s, the Spanish coming through the area called it “Cañada de las Lagunas,” or “Canyon of the Lakes.” Laguna Canyon continues to have seasonal lakes today. In the early days, few settlers wanted to build homes on the hills overlooking Laguna’s main beach and Village. In the 1920s when Southern California’s elite began to flock to the beaches, Laguna was noted for its privacy and laid-back Bohemian attitude. Some of the first estates were built in Temple Hills, enabling breathtaking views of the coastline and spectacular sunsets.
