"World Class" vista point

This quiet vista point is tucked away in North Laguna and offers a spectacular view of the breach and wildlife. Southern California at it's best.

Beautiful clean beach but not the best place to come with small children. Waves were huge at this beach and the current was just way too strong! I didn't feel safe letting my 7 year old play in a foot of water. Heck I didn't even feel that safe. If your going just for the views then it's perfect but... More

We used to live in N Laguna walking to Crescent Bay Point regularly. You get spectacular 270 degree views up the coast of Laguna north and south and close enough to bird and seal rocks you can see and hear the seals barking. Great place to visit rain or shine, best sunsets and even a great place for a small... More

Posting this public review is probably not a good idea, but this beach is too good to hide! Unlike the ridiculously crowded Laguna Beach, this somewhat hidden beach has the perfect amount of crowd that isn't too small to feel isolated or too big to feel overwhelmed. Most importantly though, the view is absolutely stunning and the water feels so... More

I was approached by a local from Laguna who advised me to go to crescent bay park and told me that the views from this area were unlike any other scenic lookout in Laguna. I am sooo glad I had the opportunity to see crescent bay myself. It was incredible! I couldn't believe the breathtaking views from the park. It... More

Great spot for picture taking and getting a full view of the Laguna Beach coastline. This was a nice walk to get to and a very chill and relaxed park. Trolley stop is not too far, so a nice way to get to the park without parking your car.

This small park perched on the point overlooking Crescent Bay and Seal Rock has great views, but it is very much a spiritual place perfect for the romantic marriage proposal, small wedding ceremony or memorial service. Mother Nature's presence here is welcome relief from our hectic lives. This is a special contemplative place.

What a great view of Laguna beach!!! My second favorite spot. Heisler park had a different view with more palm trees. I would definitely recommend taking a walk there as well. We took a lyft to get here but I would recommend walking. You turn on a side street about 2.5 miles up from sand and surf resort, walk down... More

Locals know of this place and increasingly the public. A small park, but with great views especially of the sunset. A hundred yards off the point is "seal rock" where you can hear the sea lions bark and battle for top sunning spots. Crescent Bay stretches out below. Spectacular.
