We drove along CA Pacific Highway and stopped at Hermosa, Redondo, Seal, Huntington and saved Laguna for last. All the other beaches were so large and we practically had to crawl on the rocks by the houses on the beach in order to "walk" on the beach. We were expecting much more and were very disappointed....should have driven the opposite... More

There was so many beaches to chose from when we got to California but chose Laguna because we heard it had the best waves. We weren't disappointed. Found a great little surf shop to get boogie boards and had a great time riding waves. It was a little run at times so I wouldn't just it for little kids...at least... More

Wow! Quiet walk along the top of cliffs looking into the Pacific. This is the best spot!! Hotel overlooking the ocean, and a wedding with perfect temps and a perfect sun set!! What a spot. We had a local tour guide so I can't tell you all the secrets about parking, but do find your way to this spot. I... More

We went to Laguna to show my nephew more of the California beach and coast views. We were not disappointed. The quaint town with it's lithe shops, eateries and artists was a great choice. The walk down to the beach through a side access between 2 commercial buildings was well done. There are wide steps with a few landings for... More

This place is worth going to, over and over again. You can see seals laying on the rocks at sea and many other tiny sea creatures in mini pools.

I recently for the first time traveled to California. My husband and I traveled to Laguna beach for a day in the sun. Because it was the w/e we took the advice of others, and got there early to find a parking spot. We parked at the local gas station for $15/day. The town parking lots are $5/hr and you... More

When coming to Southern California be sure to visit Laguna Beach! There is lots of great restaurant and hotels, plus the beaches are like nothing else. There is a free Trolley that runs during the summer. We took some relatives who were visiting from England and they said this was their favorite beach. Be sure to see Thousand Step Beach... More

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!
