“Boardwalk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I grew up in the wonderful city of Laguna Beach. Shame on the city officials for voting to get rid of the boardwalk on main beach. Growth is one thing, but city history is another

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Main beach is a great people watching area! People from all over as well as locals come and hang out, walk their dogs and enjoy the beach.
I frequent this beach and enjoy it every time.

“accessible, clean, nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Accessible beach with beach wheelchairs available. Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. A few unsavory characters wandering around but that seems to be fairly common in Laguna. Overall it was a lovely beach and I would definitely go back.

“People watching Beach for sure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you just want to go to the beach to watch people ...then this is a good one. There are all types, sizes, ethnicities and ages, its also a great dog watching beach...everyone that lives in Laguna brings there dog here. Art shows on the beach at various times of the year, basketball games going on and close to town. One of my all time favorite beaches.
