We ended up on the main beach from parking by Heisler Park. The restrooms do the job but I would of thought they would have more of changing areas.... Showers, Volleyball... lots of people. The water had some seaweed - but I have seen worse.

Vibrant beach, full of energy. Lots of people having fun. Volleyball, basketball, benches, etc. The tidal pools and seaweed, kelp, whatever it is can be pretty stinky, though, on a hot day.

I thought this beach was going to be a lot different. Its just a regular overcrowded beach. Nothing more nothing less.

We love this beach, there was a lot of seaweed this year but just get there early for a good spot. My kids love to play sand volleyball, beach is right in the middle of Laguna so you can eat and shop if you need a break from the beach. This beach is a must!

I enjoyed my visit to Main Beach, lots of great picture taking opportunities, but it was crowded and I enjoy a quieter beach experience. So after my short visit, I moved south. Main Beach has a lot going on, so if you enjoy people watching, this is the place to be. There are also shops, restaurants, an ice cream parlor,... More

Vacationing in California. Laguna Beach, the Main Beach, is listed in top 10. I would not even put it on the list. Holy Kelp is right...and there are flies galore! Not a pleasant time at all. Town is adorable. Parking on weekends is atrocious.

Laguna Beach has done an excellent job with caring for and maintaining all of their public beaches and park areas. Main Beach is no exception. We saw some old leathery locals here but most of them were harmless and many families were happy enjoying this beautiful beach. There are several well-used Volleyball and Basketball courts at the beach.
