“SUP in Laguna Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

It was my first time doing paddle-boarding in the open ocean and my second time ever and it was in Laguna Beach CA. The experience couldn't have been better; the instructor Dakota (from Bliss) had great energy infused with knowledge and Laguna Beach brought the view. While paddle-boarding we saw two grey whales; one that surfaced. The experience was great and if you're looking to paddle-board in Orange County I would ask for Dakota!!!

“Wonderful area for relax and enjoy the best of the country!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Laguna Beach reveal to me another face of the USA. It have many beautiful natural places like the beaches and the cliffs, and views like the top of the world park. The people are very gentle, and even that it is clearly a vacation place you don't feel that way all the time. I do recommend anyone to stay for a week or more in this area.

“Beautiful -- wish we had more time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We allotted one day to spend at Laguna Beach during our time in Southern California. We first spent some time on the beach (it was cool, so walking along rather than sitting on the beach). The tide pools were very interesting, including the education from the park rangers that were there at the tide pools. There were interesting sea life along the rocky shore area. We walked up above the beach and enjoyed the beautiful park with a fantastic view of the beach and ocean. Just gorgeous!
The town area is right off the beach so you can easily spend time in both areas. There were plenty of cute shops and art galleries rather than the endless touristy shops you can see along many beaches.
We parked along a street in town, paying the meter for several hours. May be difficult to find parking over a weekend or particular busy season--we had no difficulties however.
Next time, we will plan on staying a few nights in Laguna for the relaxing environment while still having plenty of distractions to enjoy!

“Beautiful...worth the drive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We found this beach on an adventure along the coast while visiting LA. We didn't plan to go this far south but so glad we did! Gorgeous! The tide pools were amazing and we saw Orca Whales paying just off the beach. Definitely will return and spend more time!!
