“One of a kind.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Ok, so the beach itself isn't much different than all the other beaches in SoCal but the backdrop and the town give this beach experience a step above the rest. It's clean, it's cozy and the choice of restaurants and shops is great. The town is beautiful.

“best beach in america to me”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

i live orange county but have traveled to many beaches in pacific and atlantic coast and can tell you that laguna is one of the top rated beaches in america, though a small beach it packs a punch and there's many shops and restaurants to choose from. i hate malibu, and all other southern california beaches and also hate all florida beaches including myrtle beach s.c.,

“Lovely Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Clean and relaxing beach in the OC close to many shops, restaurants and bars. Great place to hang out for a few hours and then grab dinner right on that main drag. Perfect spot for groups of friends or families.

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My husband and I had a great time relaxing, eating, enjoying the shops. However, I wouldn't say the main beach is very nice. My expectations were much higher; it turned out the beach was full of dried seaweed and dirt. The water much too cold to swim. Laguna beach is a fun, quaint town however the beach is just okay.

“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
