“It is beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Had a perfect breakfast on the ocean. They have their own parking shuttle so you don't have to cross Pacific Hwy. Relaxing. Beautiful. I'd love to go there for breakfast every day.

“not much”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

difficult parking, not much to see. Better views and beach areas in Laguna or Newport if you are looking for a nice walk

One of the nicest beaches in the area. Very calm waters for young children. Large beach,sand area. Somewhat of a walk from parking area across the street but not too far

“Great location to hang and relax for the afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

My sister and I happened on this beach. It was delightful. We spent the afternoon enjoying the surf and sun. Very mellow and not busy. We even were lucky enough to see a whale off shore breaching. I will say that getting to beach was easy, getting to the car was a trek, you need to walk up a rather steep hill. Well worth the effort!

“an average beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We went here, thinking it would be really impressive but it was just an average beach. We walked for a while; saw some rocks along the beach and a few star fish clinging to the rocks but on the whole, not so great. We also had to pay to take a short bus ride back to our car.
