Everything about Laguna was perfect. The beach was gorgeous and scenery was breathtaking. The town had plenty to choose from as far as shopping and dining.

So nice we feel asleep. Did a quick swim after my nap and felt like a mermaid with seaweed in my hair, my suit, my everything... Hit main beach and walk as far south until your on a mellow patch of sand after a nice drink at the cliffs bar:-) Laguna is nice but still love Huntington Beach much more... More

Stop by main beach Laguna and enjoy the beautiful scenery! Watch some great volleyball games, listen to the waves, enjoy the clean beach and take it all in!!! It's just beautiful!! The iconic lifeguard house is featured around town in art or signs. Nothing is like a day at the beach!!! But this is an extra special beach!!

This beach is a great local and tourist place. It's nostalic with the original lifeguard building. The sunset here is beautiful! People are playing volleyball, walking their dogs, sitting and relaxing, etc.

Loved this beach which was uncrowned, atmospheric and so typical Southern Californian. Fairly small and just off the main town area with plenty to watch going on or to sit close by on the many benches to watch the world go by or chat with the friendly locals.

This beach was absolutely beautiful and surprisingly clean considering how crowded it was. If you're looking for more of secluded scene drive a couple miles south down Pacific coast highway to find some hidden gems. Thousand Steps beach is gorgeous and hidden as well as Aliso Beach Park.

So much to do and such a beautiful beach. The kids loved it they did not want to leave! Was there on fourth of July weekend and it was not to packed, found good parking at a good price and was able to find a spot on the beach with no problem.

The beach is super wide, so even on busy days there is tons of space for the crowds. Main beach has the more tourist feel and you can head further down towards Thalia and find some killer surf and skim. I have always been happy when going. Hardest part is parking!
