“Quiet Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We visited the area for the second time this past July. The beach area is very nice, not too crowded, stunning views and easy to access.

The retail area near the beach is a great walk. Lots of great restaurants, outdoor seating and very reasonable price wise!

This is a must see of any visit to LA/ San Diego!

“A true SoCal beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Not a crowded beach, unlike others I've seen, it's beauty unfolds as you walk the shoreline. If you enjoy watching the sunset, pull up a blanket and lie back; it's a great view! If you're walking on the beach though, wear flippers or shoes; bees sometimes land on the sand.

“Great beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

There are a lot of things I like about this beach. It's very clean and not crowded at all, like so many other beaches. Also, The town of Laguna Beach is very charming and is filled with many interesting shops. This beach is a must-see!

“One of a kind.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Ok, so the beach itself isn't much different than all the other beaches in SoCal but the backdrop and the town give this beach experience a step above the rest. It's clean, it's cozy and the choice of restaurants and shops is great. The town is beautiful.
