Went to this beach a few times while in Laguna. It's not as busy as the one off downtown and parking is easier and cheaper. The little cafe at the end of the parking lot is quite good and the staff very friendly. One tip I'd give - go right after hitting the beach. The beach area on the for... More

Our young family loved this beach for the afternoon! Recommended by locals who come here frequently. There was a rough shore-break, but the kids loved being chased by the waves and playing in the sand, which was soft and nice. There is a good mix of wet hard-packed for a pleasant stroll or beach frisbee/football, and dry-soft sand for lounging... More

Sitting on the sand and watching the surfers is just wonderful. It's also the perfect spot to watch a sunset. You must pay per hour for parking but you can use your credit card. The facilities are nice and clean. I would definitely come back here again!!!!

There are beautiful homes all around you. There are... More

I went here based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Great beach to spend several hours. Parking was very cheap and easy walk to the beach. Waves crash up against the rocks for some amazing photos. Lots of local artist were there painting which was awesome to see some of their work. You have to walk around by the rocks.

I grew up here. This is my favorite spot to chill out. Surf with my friends. Walk along the beach. Or just go for a swim and cool off. There is great shopping and food nearby. With a view like this why would you leave the sand?

This is a beautiful beach with a nice parking lot (pay lot, but inexpensive). Our grandchildren had a blast here. The beach drops off rapidly so be careful.

We were last here at Christmas with the lots of family. It's got lit parking, bathrooms and well we used to use the fire rings. They are passing laws to eliminate that. We used to have worship nights there around the bonfire and smores. Glad I was able to make those memories. It's a great place for my 84 year... More

This is a beautiful beach with fantastic rocks that make for amazing crashing wave photos. Great for families, couples, whomever. The waves form tide pools here and are so cool to watch and feel! It was SO difficult to leave this place!! Parking is fairly cheap here, just make sure you keep track of your time, as they do check... More

While we were in Laguna, we wanted to try different beaches. We came here after being told that to park at Crystal Cove Beach would be $15 for over 2 hours (NO NO NO). This parking is $1 per hour, or you can try to find parking up the hill along the PCH for free. We chose to sit left... More
