Great park set along Pacific Coast Highway. Beautiful views from on top of the bluffs or walk the paths down to the beautiful beach. There is a $10 parking fee good for all the parking areas. Well worth the cost.

We have been to this beach with the kids more than once. It is a great place to explore tide pools and the sand is wonderful. There's enough surf to play in . A couple years ago when we went there were a ton of starfish. Sadly we learned from one of the volunteers that all of the starfish died... More

I selected this hike after speaking with the concierge at the hotel I was staying in at Laguna Beach. Crystal Cove State Park is very conveniently located, however it you have to be careful parking in the correct place to do the hike you want to do. After moving our car from one parking lot to another, we did find... More

We visited Crystal Cove Park during our stay at the Marriott Newport Beach Villas across the street. We were able to take a shuttle from the Marriott so we wouldn't have to pay for parking plus they drop you off right at the entrance to the park. We ate breakfast first at the Beachcomber which is a must if you... More

We love to just come down to enjoy walks on the beach and to eat and drink at the restaurant and Bootlegger bar. We keep trying to stay at the cottages, but we haven't been lucky enough with our timing yet (we keep trying). This is arrested "living history", giving us all an easy glimpse of how Southern California Beach... More

You can wander all along the beach or hike in the hills. Hidden treasure, easy access and can spend an entire day hiking, biking, swimming, walking and the views are spectacular.

This morning my business associate and I decided to take a brisk walk through the park rather than a walk on the treadmill. What a great way to make the walk more enjoyable! The paths are great and well maintained. All facilities are well cared for. A great way to take a wall or run!

Lunch and a walk on the beach... unbeatable. Your table on the deck is about 50 yards from the surf. Dinner is romantic... and if the surf is pounding... it's amazing.
