The beach seemed cleaner than ever and the ocean water even had a beautiful blue hue, something I haven't seen in the waters off California in many years, if ever!

Going on for miles and miles this is one of the most impressive beaches in the world. You get a great view from highway number 1 and can stop wherever you like.

Great cycling, beach-going, and walking. There's an ease in the air that translates into whatever you decided to do (or not to do). Favorites are walking from the Huntington Beach pier toward Newport, on the sand. About 3.5 miles, one way, and breath-taking.

Orange County has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From Seal Beach to the San Diego county line you have whatever you want. Piers, shopping, restaurants, the world famous Wedge, endless sandy beaches, surfing, people watching and best of all fantastic year around weather!

Beaches and shopping around Huntington Beach are awesome. The dog beach in particular is a well kept, excellent place to take your pet for play with other dogs and their owners.

Beautiful Coast line. Love to see the dolphins. Always changing not matter how many times I have driven it. Lots to see and do all the way to San Diego. Traffic can be bad on summer weekends. Go early and stay late. Hate places that block the view.
