We come back to Sunset Beach for the hassle free access, great sand and low stress character of this stretch of beach. Waves are good enough for some light surfing and friendly enough for splashing and swimming as a family.

Hundreds of thousands visit the pristine sandy beaches of Orange County, CA. Year round sunshine and warm to hot temperatures make for pleasant sun bathing and swimming for the willing and adventurous. Close by restaurants and entertainment venues invite the locals and tourist, including local luxury hotels and affordable lodging. I have been enjoying the California coast for over 40... More

A drive along Pacific Coast Highway through Orange County is a great ay to spend some time. There are so many things to see and do you can spend a whole day. From the surfing in H.B. To the art district in Laguna Beach there is something for all.

I actually went to Huntington Beach June of 2012 but there wasn't an option for that. Huntington Beach is my favorite place to go in the summer. There are surfers, beach goers, lots of people fishing off the world famous pier. Down Main Street there is a plethora of cafes, bars and restaurants and shops. They also have the surfing... More

This was my first time traveling to California with two close friends of mine (I'm 19 they're both 20) and boy did I pick the right spot to start our amazing vacation. First of all the laid back vibes of the area is amazing, everyone is extremly friendly and laid back. The beach was amazing, smooth soft sand for miles,... More

We drove from Huntington Beach south to Laguna. We loved the beautiful scenic views. The sights were out of this world. If you visit be sure to take a coastal drive on PCH. You won't be disappointed!

I have lived just 20 miles away from Laguna Beach which means about that distance from much of the Orange County Coast. There are great, as well as colorful, restaurants along the way. Certainly Captain Jacks in Sunset Beach is one of them. I knew Jack when he was alive. Turks is not upscale, but it has been in Sunset... More

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.
