“Lovely Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Clean and relaxing beach in the OC close to many shops, restaurants and bars. Great place to hang out for a few hours and then grab dinner right on that main drag. Perfect spot for groups of friends or families.

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My husband and I had a great time relaxing, eating, enjoying the shops. However, I wouldn't say the main beach is very nice. My expectations were much higher; it turned out the beach was full of dried seaweed and dirt. The water much too cold to swim. Laguna beach is a fun, quaint town however the beach is just okay.

“An OC Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This spectacular little seaside town is an artist colony. Each summer buzzes with art festivals and activity. Great for family holidays or for weekend getaways

“Great place to hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

this is a nice beach. great sand, great water (except the sea weeds). Ample parking, lot of food options (though a bit on the expensive side) Nice place to hang out with friends and family. Even strangers can join in a game of beach volleyball so its safe and fun. It took a while to get back from the beach as it was a single lane road to get back for me but overall it was a fine outing and I do not mind going there often.

“Absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Definitely one of my favourite places on our California road trip.

Absolutely stunning. Waves and tide are pretty big and powerful so you have to watch your children even more closely but so much fun jumping those waves!! Gorgeous town, shops, ice creams.

Totally fell in love with this place. What more can I say. Can't wait to go back!!
