I've only been to Crystal Cove 3 times now, I travel to CA for business. I love walking on the beach and taking photos of the surroundings. The cottages - even in the state some of them are in, are very quaint and take me back to a simpler time. A calmness seems to come over me while I'm there,... More

I've been going to Reef Point since the 60s. Back then you could park your car along Pacific Coast Highway and walk down the road leading to the beach. It was free and and most of the people there were surfers, divers, and those with dogs. I never witnessed any incidents with a dog (aside from the time one stole... More

Easy access on and off PCH. Laguna Beach is nearby for shopping and dining but still.."over there". Just enough distance away as to not effect a great beach experience with traffic, tourists. Water is chilly...but it's the Pacific, gonna be cold. Still shallow and calm enough to enjoy almost all the time. We drive down from Long Beach to experience... More

I go to Crystal Cove 3 times a week for walking along this pristine beach. There is a restaurant on the beach, a hamburger stand above, and Crystal Cove shopping center across PCH. with lots of up scale restaurants, and shops.

After we arrived at the hotel, I wanted to make a beeline to hike to the ocean. On a picture perfect day in Newport, we headed down for a hike! A great start to a week I the OC!!

Great beach, great sunset and plenty of space Be careful when the tide is coming in as it catches you unawares and you all end up soaked.... Just added to the fun of the day and you dry off quickly anyway!

there are at least nine hikes to choose from with different levels of difficulty. This great workout will result in amazing ocean views.

This is a great place to enjoy the beach for yourself between the busy places of Laguna and Newport Beach. The historic district offers the charm of decay, can only be seen from the beach and is not accessible. You can walk along the beach, watch the tide pools and have some food at the Beachcoomber if you are lucky... More

This is a beautiful and quiet state park along the highway/beach. There is plenty of backcountry hiking, the gorgeous beach, and campground with amazing ocean views. The Moro Campground is located on the bluff above the highway and is the best designed beach campground I've ever been to. The sites are spacious (both tent and RV) and clean. The loops... More
