The Lago Santa Margarita Beach Club brings a resort-style experience to Rancho Santa Margarita. With a sand-bottom swimming lagoon, two sand volleyball courts, 17 barbecue grills, two cabana lounges, picnic areas, and outdoor showers, the Beach Club is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon! The Beach Club is open for use during the summer season, generally May - October.
The Lago Santa Margarita Beach Club blends natural elements with the comforts of modern living. Featuring a sand-bottom swimming lagoon, peaceful lounge areas, and dappled shade from sycamore trees, the Beach Club is the perfect place to spend warm summer days. The Beach Club’s welcoming amenities invite Members to create long-lasting memories throughout the year. The Fiesta Room is a bright and sunny multipurpose space where Members can host parties, club meetings, and more. Take a few minutes to admire the views of the Lago Santa Margarita against the Saddleback mountains, then browse the SAMLARC Library for a light lakeside read! The Beach Club is also the home of several signature SAMLARC events, including the July 4th Star Spangled Spectacular and adults-only Wine & Cheese tasting. From May to September, the Lagoon is filled with water that reflects the blue skies overhead. The fine sand of the Lagoon is specifically selected for its soft texture—creating a beach resort style experience both in the water and along its shores. Water safety breaks are built into the Lagoon’s daily schedule— providing families with the opportunity to take a break, enjoy a snack, and reapply sunscreen. Grilling on the barbecues and friendly matches on the volleyball courts are easy ways for families of all ages to relax. Members can rent kayaks, water trikes, and pedal boats for a spin on the deep blue waters of the Lago Santa Margarita or rent a surrey bike for a quick trip around the Lakeshore. Friday evenings during the summer season also feature the Music at the Lagoon series: live performances by local musical artists. The Beach Club was designed to be a gathering space for Members and their guests. The bell tower chimes throughout the day, providing a melody for tranquil afternoons. Beneath the bell tower, the Beach Club office is a hive of activity: new Members are welcome to visit the office to receive their facility access cards, make picnic shelter and party reservations, and more.
