For me, a beach should be quiet and relaxing. Also, I prefer to have space to spread out and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Unfortunately, I found Main Beach to be too crowded and too situated in the busy part of town. If you are looking for the hustle and bustle of downtown Laugna coupled with a beach experience,...

Great for n people watching! The center of town, where all the action is. Basketball courts, volleyball courts, playground. The beach is walkable, but not very wide. Too crowded on a busy weekend. No good parking and only 3 hr expensive meters, if you can even find a place to park. A 1x must see.

Visited this beach every day of our three day stay in Laguna Beach. Wasn't the cleanest beach I've been to by far. Several homeless people appear to live there. It's right off Coast Hwy, the Main Street in Laguna, so it's easy to wander on to this beach.

Laguna Beach is a great California Beach. Lots of shops and places to eat. The Beach is very family oriented and easy to navigate. Pick a spot and enjoy the day from morning to sunset.

I first went in January 2004, so lucky to go with my husband last week. We had a picture perfect day, it started out foggy but once the sun burned it away. Sunshine and blue skies that matched the ocean and the waves. The board walk is peaceful while being a busy walkway for couples, families and dogs on leashes.... More

The main beach in Laguna Beach is a good beach, but it is very busy during the summer. Some people love the busy-ness. Parking is up and down route 133, and free shuttle service will get you back and forth.

As are most California Beaches this one is very clean. It is dog and family friendly. There is lots of parking near by that doesn't cost much. There is a free trolly service.
