We went here mainly due to location by our hotel. After walking along other beaches in the area we were glad this one was by us. High tide takes up a lot of the beach but, the waves were fun for boogie boarding.

Laguna Beach is a gem in itself, but this little park was the icing on our Southern California trip. If you like open water, there's room to swim. If you want to play around with a boogie board it's a place to do so, however,...More
