Walk on the pier and enjoy a snack or meal, with an ocean view, at Ruby's. (Fun for all ages & great milkshakes.) Take a stroll, ride a bike, swim or watch surfers and kite flyers. Shop, eat drink and relax. Something for every age...More

Great for cycling and camping- Open, serene and clean. Lots of grills on the beach but also plenty of restaurants nearby.

Never been to this particular beach before. Very nice. Parking close to the beach, firepits, nice water, you can go in the water for a long time until it gets deeper. If you like, you can swim. Lifeguards patrols everywhere. Toilets pretty clean. Showers. Tip:...More

This whole strip from Laguna Beach to Huntington Beach is just fantastic for the view. Tall palms, sandy beaches and lovely places to sit and watch the waves. Loved it.

I lived in the Harbor years ago. The beach was pristine. Now that is a state beach is truly a disaster. Bottles and trash everywhere.... lower class of people with no manners. Bathroom so dirty that I almost got sick 😷

This place is great to bring children, friends, or a date! There is a lot of sticks and wood chips around so be careful when walking. Great place to wade in the water, have a bonfire, and relax. No alcohol and no closed tents permitted....More

We went for 3 days/2 nights in our motorhome mid-week in July. Beach was basically empty except for the surf school 200 yards in one way and the jr. lifeguard bunch 200 yards the other way - it was great, nothing like Newport or Balboa....More
