“People watching Beach for sure.”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you just want to go to the beach to watch people ...then this is a good one. There are all types, sizes, ethnicities and ages, its also a great dog watching beach...everyone that lives in Laguna brings there dog here. Art shows on the beach at various times of the year, basketball games going on and close to town. One of my all time favorite beaches.

“Go up the coast for bit more privacy”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The main beach was good for swimming and volleyball courts. Go up the beach for watching surfers and more privacy on the beach.

“Sadly some homeless people hang around at night!!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Not the best (but not the worst) beach in Southern California.
Stay clear of the area surrounding the public restrooms as homeless people seem to use these on a regular basis and their unkempt demeanour can be off-putting for children!

“Too Crowded Poor Parking”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

There are better beaches in Southern California by far. There is no good parking access here and the beach is too close to the city itself for my taste. Nice place to take a walk, I guess, but the kind of "day at the beach" experience you can get at other local beaches.
