Relaxing

Came on a Tuesday afternoon. Great weather, relaxing and clean beach. Not overcrowded. Great place to come layout and enjoy the sun or just enjoy dipping in the water.

The waves are kind of strong and rough for swimming but there were some people out there. The pier and parking situation seemed good on the beach side. The pier had lots of people fishing on it and catching smallish types of fish. It was nice. Bike rental available.

Came here on a Monday and this beach is way overcrowded. We chose this beach because it had the best reviews. It was way too busy and not enough parking. Next time I would go to Huntington beach where there is way more room to spread out.

I think it is great that there are still beaches with fire pits. A great place for the younger adults to congregate. The length of the beach is great for walking. Homes along the beach are also fun to look at. Parking easily available along the road as evening approaches- otherwise parking is available right by the sand.

Always good but very noisy in bar and hard to find seats. Much better in the restaurant where they have the traditional prime rib. Still great for special occasions.

This is beautiful beach with many things to do. There is a food vendor on the beach along with places that have rentals. Make sure to park on the street by the houses, it's free! All you have to do is enjoy the great view from the top, or walk down some stairs to access this beach. It has a... More

Corona del Mar Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in California. Catalina views and sometimes you will even see whales and dolphins. Really fun for the whole family.

Corona Del Mar is a lovely small down in Southern California. The beach is not large, but it is kept very clean.
