Had a few beach visits during the month of May and Laguna Beach's public beach in the middle of the city is very charming with its white safeguard house, playground for the kids and the view back to the city. Its small, so be there early on good days to have your spot. It is nice and relaxing. Lot of... More

Great place to stroll around and see the shops, eat, or relax on the beach. It is a really pretty little beach town. Plus, it has some community art venues. It is also a place to see how the other half lives. The homes are spectacular!

While renting a vacation home in west Hollywood my partner and i decided on a whim to take a day trip to Laguna Beach. What an amazing place! The town itself is small and cute with lots of shops and palces to eat, but for us the real win was the incredible beach! Gorgeous sand, no rocks or garbage and... More

Laguna beach is a beautiful place.I spent the entire day there at the main beach by the basket ball courts on the sand, and there was not a dull moment. The high lights include; many travelers from all around the world speaking different languages, the beautiful view of the ocean, the Natural pools on the edges of the beach, and... More

I've been here three times now and I'm utterly amazed by it's beauty, especially the sunsets. The water is above standard temp considering I'm used to the cold Atlantic! My boyfriend Paul first showed me this place. Paul has a history there and lived on the beach for three years. We both love going down and getting a glimpse of... More

Loved walking around the main strip in Laguna, so many cute shops & great restaurants. Homeless people around but they don't bother anyone really. The area is just really beautiful.

The beach is awesome. Here's a few hints : ample parking at the Starbucks on Hwy. 1 and next door at the convenience store, or try one of the parking garages. Driving into the canyons will be crowded in the mornings and best route to take is Crown Valley to Hwy. 1.

Paid Parking is available above the "Main Beach" near the Lawn Bowling Area. Stroll along the walkway towards Laguna Main Beach and back to the end on walking path. Great place to bring a picnic, book, or just people watch. Restrooms available, well maintained and clean. Visit on a weekday to avoid the crowds. Starbucks located across the street and... More

If you're traveling north or south on the 405 Freeway in Orange County, whether visiting lovely Laguna Beach or heading for the multiple attractions of San Diego on one end and Los Angeles on the other, do not under any circumstances take toll road #73, which feeds off the 405. Instead, if you're driving from LA to Laguna, continue a... More
