We like Laguna Beach - it's not too big but it is big enough to have nice restaurants and a few good shops. The parking can be tricky but persevere and you'll find somewhere. It's quieter than the bigger places such as Newport Beach.

This is a beautiful beach town. The beach is rugged. The town has numerous art galleries and fun boutiques as well. Can be crowded on the weekend. Lots of nice restaurants perched on the beach.

Laguna Beach is one of the million beaches on the pacific coast highway. More than the beach we enjoyed the walk along the coast with small joints cafes and shops! It was cooler and perfect for a stroll with a cup of hot chocolate! We didn't dare to put our feet in the water! Recommended to visit during the day... More

One of the most beautiful beaches. Clean, gorgeous, family and pet friendly, it's a must visit while in SoCal. Absolutely glorious sunrises and sunsets.

We enjoyed our visit here with a stop at Nick's for lunch. Walked the area for awhile and then visited the beach for some awesome views!

This is one of the loveliest beaches in Southern California. The water was warm enough to surf. The sand is smooth and the beach is long enough for a good walk. Climbing over the rock banks and arches to get to adjacent beaches was fun. The beach is safe and was not at all crowded at this time of year... More
