“Fantastic Landscapes and Seascapes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

This has to be one of the more amazing parks by any ocean. It has a unique arrangement of trees and shrubbery coupled with a walking/running trail along a cliff that runs along the coastline and that offers some spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the city of Laguna Beach and its hills. On several occasions, there are steps leading down to the beach so you're never far off from the water either.

This is also a very family-friendly park. Dog-walking is permitted, however, and is very prevalent. Parking is metered (at a nominal $2 per hour) and not easy to find, so be prepared to walk. Yet, the trail alone is well, well worth taking a trip here for.

“Perfect views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Heisler Park is an area that overlooks the Pacific with beautiful views along a winding path. The path is paved and has grass on one side along with palm trees and plants, birds and many artists set up painting on a clear day. You'll see lizards, hummingbirds, rabbits, seals and dolphins if you pay attention. There are picnic areasm restrooms and places to just sit and watch the view. A nice alternative to going to Main Beach when you don't want to get sandy, wet or have alot of people around. Terriffic sunsets.

“Private beach for kids and see the tide pools”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

At no cost except parking, a delightful find. Check low tide and take your kids and watch them light up
Safe, protected and not crowded -- what more can you want

“Learning about Limpits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

More of a nature reserve, not much beach area like other beaches throughout Laguna. Lot's of opportunity to explore tidal pools and find keyhole limpits (among other things).

“A joy to be there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

The views are awesome. The sounds of the surf abound. Restrooms are accessible. You'll find benches to sit on, grassy areas in which you can picnic or relax. It has something for everyone.
