Beach Club Lagoon

The Lago Santa Margarita Beach Club brings a resort-style beach experience to

Rancho Santa Margarita.


Positioned next the Lago Santa Margarita, the Beach Club blends natural beauty with high-quality community amenities. Featuring a sand-bottom swimming lagoon, peaceful lounge areas, and dappled shade from sycamore trees, the Beach Club is the perfect area to spend warm summer days. During the summer season, Members can also take advantage of watercraft and surrey bike rentals, as well as browsing the SAMLARC Library for a light "beach" read! The Beach Club also includes the Fiesta Room, an intimate gathering space where Members can enjoy celebrating with their families and guests throughout the year.
