We took a day trip to this beach with our softball team. I don't know S. California but this beach was terrible. I'm sure there are better places. The kids still had fun. The tides make this beach unsafe for little ones in my opinion. It's obviously very popular and was packed on a Sunday. I had to change in... More

Very walkable beach with an in-town feel. Nice friendly crowd and well maintained and supervised. Not too crowded when you walk South of Town.

Lots of parking along the coast highway. The views are simply stunning! Great photo ops for the romantics & whole family! There's also a lot of restaurants if you get hungry. Definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in California! About 45 minutes from Long Beach.

Ever since I was a teen Diving at Shaw's cove I had a dream to move here. I finally did after traveling worldwide. I discovered the weather of the Mediterranean, with the charm of an Artist's Paradise. The scenery is amazing. The lifestyle the best. The charming business town center is located on Forrest and Ocean Avenues and can be... More

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
