Nice beach

Great people watching. Big waves. Able to access town. Some coves close by where can see sea urchins and other sea life.

Central to restaurants and shopping, Main Beach is a great place to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee from the Starbucks across the street, and take in the view.

Although it is beautiful for a downtown beach, it is crowded, noisy and difficult to find parking. Drive south a few miles and go to Table Rock or 1,000 Steps for a REAL Laguna experience. But if you are shopping in town, it is worth crossing PCH and taking in the view.

Popular. Great shops nearby - take your new swim suit you purchased on Broadway and go play across the street in the ocean.

Great photo pop with the iconic lifeguard tower. Lots of volley ball nets. Nice waves great for a day at the beach. Several restaurants close by.

Wide and pretty beach. Waves were kicking (4-5 feet) when I was here. We came in the middle of the week and the beach was fairly empty. Water was icy cold.

Wife and I went on a road trip this is one of the places we stopped and all we could find was 1 spot for 30 Minute Max. So we didn't get to spend much time there but otherwise would have been a nice beach sand was soft not harsh like some beaches. Lots to do and despite what some... More

Laguna Beach is a wonderful place and this beach is essentially right across the street from downtown. Get a good parking space and do both. Walk to the north on the beach and check out a small tidal pool area. Heisler Park is here as well.

Whether you want to swim or play in the sand or let the kids play in the play area or walk along the boardwalk this is a nice place to be. Has bathrooms here as well
