Let's face it, Main Beach, Laguna is one of the most photographed/painted beaches in all of California and there is good reason for it. The curves of the shoreline, the rocks & palms are aligned just perfectly! It's gorgeous, plain and simple. Being able to walk here daily is a true blessing.

Laguna must have about 15 beach coves each with a different vibe and different kind of water and waves...MB is the best for out of towners....easy to find....closest to parking which is not really close but no where is....and close to village....the waves are still challenging but manageable...

Main Beach is the quintessential tourist attraction. It is in fact very beautiful-but crowded and busy/noisy. If you really want to experience Laguna Beach ask a local about the various pocket beaches and coves which are numerous and at the end of easy to find streets off of Pacific Coast Highway. We were lucky one afternoon to come upon a... More

Great place to people watch both on the sand and on the boardwalk. I walked the surf every morning before breakfast. Also fun to watch the hard-bodies playing volleyball almost all day everyday.

The main beach was just down the road from our hotel during our Laguna vacation, so we hung out there often. It's very, very clean!!

This is one of the most accessible and beautiful free places on the So Cal Pacific coast to watch the sunset. You can climb up the stairs to the north and look down from the cliffs, or you can just find a bench and ENJOY!!

Wow, I've never been so enthralled with these beaches. Each one clean and dogs all over, being walked by environmentally physed owners who all want the beaches prectine. Californians keep their state in a beautiful clean fashion.

Loved sitting here watching: the waves crash on shore, the volly ball games, all the interesting people. Great place to sit with a cup of coffee and pastry in the morning after walking along the beach from our room. Good place to watch the sunset also.
