“Excellent beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Beach is always great for families. Main beach has volleyball, clean restrooms, close to shops and eating, lifeguards and decent waves. Dogs are allowed on most beach all times during off peak, then from about May 15 to Oct 15, dogs only in early AM and late PM.

Lots of great shops and food to compliment beach day with the family

“Worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We spent some time in Laguna Beach in February. It is absolutely a beautiful coastal town! There is a beautiful walk along the ocean that is above the rocky coast and beach. It is lined with gorgeous flowers, plants and cacti. The parking is a bit of a pain but you can use your credit card to pay for a few hours at a time. I think Laguna Beach is a hidden gem of California, not well known outside of the local circles but well worth the visit! There are also great restaurants that look out over the ocean for sunset dining and quaint little shops where you can window shop or spend some money! Worth the visit!

“Beautiful, clean beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I loved Laguna Beach. The town is so cute and the beach is so clean. The Pacific was freezing in late March, but it was SO pretty. The sand is beautiful, and I would definitely go back!

Clean, scenic. They had just opened a new children's play area. Great for people watching. Lots of places to eat and shop. We walked from our hotel.

“Lots of interesting things to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Laguna Beach is a charming town with many restaurants,art galleries, shops for jewelry, clothing and doodads and the beach is lovely. Yes, it's crowded and sometimes VERY crowded but there's a reason because it has something for everyone and not many touristy shops (i.e.t-shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps & fast food) Parking can definitely be a problem, but persevere.
