“An OC Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This spectacular little seaside town is an artist colony. Each summer buzzes with art festivals and activity. Great for family holidays or for weekend getaways

“Great place to hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

this is a nice beach. great sand, great water (except the sea weeds). Ample parking, lot of food options (though a bit on the expensive side) Nice place to hang out with friends and family. Even strangers can join in a game of beach volleyball so its safe and fun. It took a while to get back from the beach as it was a single lane road to get back for me but overall it was a fine outing and I do not mind going there often.

“Absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Definitely one of my favourite places on our California road trip.

Absolutely stunning. Waves and tide are pretty big and powerful so you have to watch your children even more closely but so much fun jumping those waves!! Gorgeous town, shops, ice creams.

Totally fell in love with this place. What more can I say. Can't wait to go back!!

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The beach is right on the main road but you don't even notice the traffic. The cliffs and palm trees and beautiful sand make you feel as if you are in paradise. However you are right in the center of town and have access to many great restaurants and shopping.
Best beach in California !

“Most Iconic Beach Town in Southern California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is it! The best beach views in the state. Dine at the beach side restaurants. Stroll down the street’s and you will find art ,eating and quaint shops... this place has it all. Go early and parking is no problem and do not miss walking down through Heisler Park. Love this area so much!
