I lived here long ago and now visit here often. It is my go-to beach of all those along the California coast. The beaches and their individual and unique coves continue to invite me like no other beach area can. The shops reflect a small town spirit that hasn't changed much throughout the years. The restaurants provide so many delicious... More

I love Laguna Beach. The beach is clean and the water is majestic! It's a dog friendly beach. The sunsets are simply amazing!! I love to dine at a restaurant overlooking the beach and watch the sunset.

One of my favourite California beaches, very walkable. Love being able to walk to downtown and to the parks from any point along the coast.

Picturesque beach in this bustling little town that has lots of quirky and interesting shops. The beach is nice and wasn't too busy , people playing volleyball and other sports just up from the beach. We didn't go here to sit down and sunbathe just passing through to enjoy the views. Nice place overall and going for dinner here tonight... More

One of the best views in the world of the Atlanta ocean. The park is pristine. I don't see how it can be maintained so we'll. Wonderful walk.

Very sad that we only stayed one night of our road trip. Beach was very clean and tidy. Lots of people walking about and taking photos. Various art galleries and shops around but we didn't have time to visit them. Will definitely plan a return trip one day.

Walked around Laguna beach and took a little shopping in. Nice area to walk around, sit by the beach, or lay on the beach. Very nice clean sand.

We regularly hit the happy hour at the rooftop bar at the Mozambique on the second Thursday of the month to watch the various stages of the sunset. Then we go down to the Art Museum just North Beach where for $5 you can not only see the new art displays but also catch a 7 pm concert sponsored by... More
