This is one of my favorite places in Laguna Beach to watch the sunset and hope for a "Green Flash". On one side is Crescent Beach and some small coves. Looking out to the sea is Seal Rock. On a good day you can see seals swimming or sunbathing on the rocks. It is a quiet relaxing place to read... More

We visited only a handful a beaches during our vacation. This one is our favorite. The rocks on either ends help blocked some wind so it made for a perfectly sunny day. Parking is free but limited-we were lucky to grab a sweet spot but it was kind of chilly that day. Awesome place to be lazy & soak up... More

Beautiful wide clean beach with cliff formation bookends. An amazing afternoon. Parking is a challenge, but we got lucky there too. Nothing like east coast beaches.

Crescent Bay Park has the most beautiful views! It is a peaceful, happy, and relaxing place. Photos do not do it justice. You have to enjoy it in person.

I have been going to this cove (or "bay" as they now call it) since I was 2 years old during WWII. Most of the homes above it were not there until more recently but the cove, the crystal clear waters and the perfect waves for body surfing remain unchanged. Great snorkeling around the rocks on either side when the... More

This is a gorgeous park tucked away within a neighborhood of quiet streets and charming homes. It has incredible views of the beloved and incomparable Laguna Beach. Bring a blanket, book and simple lunch and spend a couple of hours here and you'll come away feeling totally relaxed and renewed.

We took a spur of the moment trip down PCH looking for the perfect spot to witness a spectacular January sunset and we were not disappointed. We got here about 30 minutes before he sunset, watch people on the beach, paddle boarders and tide pool viewers. Once the sun dropped over the horizon behind Catalina we witnesses 160 degree view...

A lovely gem off the PCH. I've seen weddings here and also had it to ourselves. Parking limited but free. Lovely views of cove on one side and rock cliffs on the other. Water incredibly blue and clean and clear! You are sure to see seals on Seal Rock just off shore. Beach is not accessible from overlook but access... More

I grew up, evrty Summer at least, and had occasion to return for a day this past Summer. This beach is one that lived up to my memories. Made me want to build a sandcastle!

I used to live up the street from Crescent Bay Point Park. Just across from the Shell station as you come into Laguna from the North, its clearly marked as a view point overlooking the Pacific about 100' over the rocks. Its within ear shot of the seals living on Seal Rock and Bird Rock about 500' offshore. This is... More
