We visit this beach every year and stay at the Travelodge that is right on the beach. It is clean and now crowded because it is so big. Good places to eat nearby and not crazy like some of the beaches in more populated areas.

Sunset Beach/Orange County Coast is it's own subset of beaches. You can grab a place on the sand and relax. You can take a short walk from the beach and look houses and visit restaurants. Parking is good. Getting there early helps to ensure that you find a parking spot.

We love Orange County Coast. Beautiful views, great beaches, including a doggie beach. Clean, lots of parking, shopping, great restaurants...Everytime we come to visit family, one day is dedicated to the coast, never can get enough.

Loved traveling along the Orange County Coast on the Pacific Coast Highway. Great beaches and places to stop and enjoy the scenery. So many places to stop for either something to eat or do. Walk on the beach, enjoy the sunset or have a drink.

It is always a nice day on the coast. Many small places to explore. The wetlands is a nice walk. The shops are always interesting.

Just another southern CA beach...crowded and dirty. Really no big deal, but then again it's southern CA. You can't escape the millions of people no matter where you go.

The beach is great- very wide, clean and a relaxing place to enjoy the day. Parking can be a bit difficult so get here early if it's summertime.
