Theres something special about this beach to me. Although it is always crowded especially with tourists, the way the coastline is and the sunsets makes this place magical. I like to go when its not crowded and at the end of the day for the sunsets.

I had the honor to live in Laguna Beach for over a year and finally got back last month. I would highly recommend a visit if you are ever within reach of this area. Anytime of year Laguna's main beach is amazing and a quick stroll along its shores will momentarily take all of your cares away :)

There was so many cool things going on. The people were very friendly. The beach was very clean. You can find so many neat eating places near the beach and very reasonably priced.

Throughout the season and over the years, the main beach is the hub of Laguna Beach activity. This is a great walk, surf, swim, run or just hangout beach. As parking in the peak season is an issue. Best experienced by renting a place on it. The waves and sunsets are phenomenal especially from a private lanai or deck where... More

We've been going to Laguna Beach for twenty years. It's in an amazing location, right at the tip of downtown Laguna. The city has invested a tremendous amount of money in creating a beautiful beach. It's safe and the amenities are beyond compare. You will not find a better beach on the west coast.

there is a very nice playground on the beach as well as a safeguard tower , so it is quite nice to go there with kids. even if the ocean is too cold to swim in, it is always great to be outdoor and have fun on the sand.

Wonderful beachfront town with great restaurants, boardwalk and beach access. My favorite beach area. Weekends are crowded and parking is always tough.

I have gone here a few times and I've loved it every time. The water can be cold but it's a clean and beautiful beach. I have never experienced it being overcrowded.

Love just sitting around the beach and watching people. Everything is close and within walking distance to have a great time for a few days.
