Seventeen of the original historic beach cottages remain unrestored along the North Beach at Crystal Cove. Without restoration, these last cottages will remain empty and unused and may deteriorate to the point where restoration will become impossible. Crystal Cove Conservancy’s proposed North Beach Restoration will ensure that this does not happen and that these historic structures will be restored and leveraged to create additional renewable revenue streams and provide a frontline laboratory to study coastal engineering and coastal dynamics.

Once complete, all seventeen of the restored cottages will be added to the overnight rental pool, which will result in twenty-two additional rental units, nearly doubling the number of rental units at Crystal Cove.

After four years in the application process, on March 8, 2017, the California Coastal Commission unanimously approved the coastal development permits for the restoration of the North Beach cottages. More info.
