Still a great beach.

Been a few years, but this is still nice, quiet beach to hang out at. Good for families with smaller children.

The entire Orange County Coast is breathtaking when driving on the Pacific Coast Highway! It is such an easy drive with beautiful views to take in!

PCH along the Pacific Coast between Seal Beach and Newport is an easy, relaxing drive with great ocean views.

Amazing. Views at every turn. Plenty of places to pull over and take pictures. Every beach has a different vibe to it. I loved them all

It's ok. Not a lot of beach side facilities. If you want to lay on a beach without a lot of people or attractions, this is the beach for you.

I bought a timeshare on Maui 20 years ago and another timeshare in Mazatlan in 2003. I have stayed at both a few times, but always feel the most beautiful spot to visit is still the Orange County Coastline. The little inlet coves that take you by surprise coming over the hill from Newport down to Laguna are a cinematographers... More

Nice for a bike ride or just walking around, nice place to watch the sunset or just chill with a friend with a cup of coffee in hand.

We were just north of the pier. It was such a nice beach. We found parking easily and the beach wasn't crowded at all. The sand was nice. It was windy and the water was a little colder, but overall a much better experience than when we went to La Jolla. We were staying in a timeshare near Disney and... More

There is no other beach like this anywhere. Over 10 miles of uninterrupted sand, wide enough to set volleyball, umbrellas, surf contests and the like.

The traffic going to Newport and Laguna Beach, go super early or avoid. Traffic was so bad, we almost got side swiped three times.
