How many beaches can you think of that have a Basketball court with a steps to village location? Locals and Tourists alike hang out. In the past we have seen it get washed out by storm run off , however great measures have been taken to provide runoff and a "Boardwalk" vibe. Benches are available so sunbathe, promenade, and chill... More

Loved this beach. It's very pretty. Be careful with small children at the rocks by the ocean. You won't be disappointed.

A very nice and fun beach. WARNING: Certain areas do have strong rip-tides. Stay in the shallow areas where you can clearly see the beach

Laguna Main beach is a wonderful place to just relax and take in the sunshine. The adjacent waters provide plenty of surfing and snorkeling for the active people.

This is our go to beach in southern California. It's small, quaint, and features a great little hillside lawn perfect for picnics and avoiding the sand with little ones. Just steps from the sand, as well as a sweet playground for the kids. Be sure and walk out to the tide pools, then walk across the street and you can... More

We liked this area because it was less rocky. The under toe seemed strong, but we stayed knee deep. Absolutely beautiful, friendly people.

Water was very rough, quite a wind blowing, was not greatly impressed by the beach that had nothing to do with the weather, it was really ordinary and have seen a lot better!

Laguna Beach is very crowded, the traffic can be crazy....but its a great beach destination and has the charm of a small town. Nearby are some great scuba diving sites.

My husband and I took our 2-year-old to Main Beach during the late afternoon to run off some energy. Nice boardwalk to walk along, clean public restrooms, and a nice playground. We didn't get in the water, but had fun watching volleyball players and dog-walkers. There are quite a few homeless people who hang out at Main Beach, but it... More

Even with gray skies, the beach is iconic and a wonderful spot to walk by. You'll miss the blue green water view but enjoy it as much with less crowds.
