From a movie

Laguna beach is like California from a movie. Amazing boardwalk. Lots of food options, basketball and volleyball on the beach and really cool surf shops.

Cliffs overlooking rocky beach with pockets of sand and surfers in the water...idyllic, but the town, lots of shops, lots of restaurants, lots of people, a fair bit of galleries (some interesting), but seemed rather canned, which doesn't mean not to go, just noting didn't see that special character here.

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.
