What’s not to love about Laguna Beach? Sand volleyball, sandy beach, lifeguards, bathrooms, rinsing area, and a kids playground area. Walking distance to ice cream shops, surf shops, restaurants, and tourist shops. Note - if you have an attendee that skim boards or surfs you’ll have to walk down the beach almost a mile to the hard boarding area -... More

One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. Not crowded. Surrounded by cliffs and beautiful neighborhoods. Cannot wait to come back.

The Pageant of the Masters has been around forever, and for good reason. If you're in Laguna Beach in the summer, and have the chance to attend this spectacular event, GO! It is mammoth effort produced by virtually the entire town, and it's nearly impossible to describe. Masterworks of art recreated with real people and costumes? You have to see... More

Laguna Beach is nice and clean with a full beach side basketball court. The shops are cute and full of surprises. Heisler Park on Laguna Beach was beautiful and the views are really pretty. We walked the beach and watched the waves hit the rocks. It was peaceful.

Laguna Beach has it all...fun in the sun and surf, games on the beach to keep active, public bathrooms and showers, great places to eat, great shopping options along the beach and many great art galleries and unique places a short stroll inland. We love to visit Laguna Beach and it seems almost unchanged for the last 10 years. We... More

I am a world traveler, a nomad, or was. Laguna Beach is now my permanent home. Oh, I still travel but this town is where I come back to LIVE. For those folks coming here in the summer, don't bother renting a car. There are free trolleys and shuttle buses and you won't be able to drive here not knowing... More

If you like crowds and traffic this is the place for you. Lots of shops restaurants and a very small beach. Just my opinion, but I prefer to enjoy the beach in peace. The beach itself is just too crowded for me. Took us an hour to find parking. We had people sitting 4 feet away from us on the... More

Laguna beach is a paradise! The beautiful flowers on the boardwalk and there are less people compared to Santa Monica Beach. It’s like you have your own private beach to unwind.

Even though it is not hyped as Santa Monica, but it is a calm beach, where you can spend time with your family

One of the nicest beaches on the California coastline. Although it can be quite a traffic jam in the summer. this town offers so many nice places to visit. The restaurants, galleries and little shops are a gem! We have spent hours walking through the town.
