“One of my favorite beach towns in Southern California!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

As a Southern California native, I've been running up and down the coast of California in search of great beaches most of my life. The first time I visited Laguna Beach, I was hooked!! It is a wonderful little beach town full of quaint little art shops, eateries, and fine art galleries. The beach itself is clean and if you have kids, they will love exploring the tide pools. The water is refreshingly clear and the sunsets here are nothing less than spectacular. Overall, it is a great place for couples, families, and groups. There's plenty to do and lots to see.

Often offered free art activities, jewelry making for kids and adults, free scavenger hunt with lots of prizes, great food, but a lot of people on the weekends.

Clean beaches, great art galleries, delicious restaurants, funky shops, and quirky houses all blend together to create the best beach experience SoCal has to offer. It's always my favorite.

We love this cute, quaint beach town ! This is what I visualized a California beach town to be like.....did not care for Malibu or Santa Monica much. Would love to visit Laguna Beach again !

“Terrific beach in great beach town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I love Laguna Beach - not just for the beach, but for the town. There are terrific restaurants, art galleries, and fun stops for kids (the candy store right across from the beach). Don't miss Whitney Gallery - beautiful paintings by the talented Marc Whitney. I love his work.
