Lovely small beach to walk hand in hand with your sweetheart. We could walk from Downtown to the stairs at our Resort. Short walk but enjoyable.

Laguna Beach is a very charming village with very nice beaches and nice shops. There are many art shops and galleries. It deserves a visit if you are in LA area.

This is the prototypical SoCal beach front park. Get your toes in the sand and chilly waters, stroll and watch some kids and beach volleyballers!

While waiting for our table at Tommy Bahama's we walked across the street to take in a beautiful sunset. Main beach is very pretty and special to visit.

No bad. A little crowded at time but a nice beach to experience. Great start on your journey through Laguna.
