Loved Laguna Beach! Ate at Alessa's Italian Restaurant on Forest St.; Las Brisas Restaurant was great right by the ocean; C'est La Vie has a GREAT Breakfast! Patio overlooking the ocean; best find was Treasure Island Park right past The Montage' Hotel. There is a small public parking lot then you can walk all around behind the Montage. BEAUTIFUL!!! You...

Tar covered the beach. Before I realized it was tar I'd stepped in a large pile of it. It stuck to my foot, a terrible mess. Had to basically use a large rock and sand to "scrub" it off. Had to scrub so hard to get it off my skin bled. Sticky, stinky and all over Laguna beach! Disgusting.

We went to Victoria Beach (part of Laguna Beach) in search of the Mysterious Castle Turret that was built in 1926 for State Senator William Brown and his family as a stairway up the cliff to their magnificent vacation home overlooking the Pacific. In the 1940's the home and tower were sold to retired Naval officer Harold Kendrick and since... More

Great seaside beach area with funky people-watching opps. The town is low key with many restos , shops and galleries. Very pleasant for an afternoon even if it's not beach weather. Enjoy!

Loose yourself in a world of imagination....walk through the nursery and travel different realms.... I felt I was Alice in wonderland, and moving from area to area a new sense of discovery appeared. If you are in Laguna, you MUST stop here.

This little town is so charming. It's one of the gems along the Pacific Coast highway and is just too cute. The restaurants all smelled amazing and the beach was beautiful

This one is a beautiful beach. It is a sandy beach with clear beautiful waters. Ideal for surfing as it is not too deep and has sufficient waves. It is clean and offers beautiful views.Ample of shopping nearby and many places to eat. People are friendly and helpful.

I have taken some amazing scenery pictures at Laguna Beach! The weather is always amazing and the view of the ocean, the trees and the mountains inspire awe. I highly recommend a stop here if you are into nature.

Laguna Beach is a really beautiful up-market resort. My husband and I paid a visit towards the end of October. We were very fortunate to find an on-street parking place. Even though parking is expensive, Laguna Beach is a busy resort and parking next to the ocean is difficult to find. Having put all of our change into the ticket... More

For parking just find a metered spot on or off the PCH. Meters take CCs. Many little restaurants and coffee shops along the main drag. The beach was very busy that warm afternoon, but the ocean water was chilly. Waves were quite big.
