“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

It's such a joy to sit on a peaceful beach watching families relax and kids play. Not every day is tranquil like yesterday, but we've had wonderful experiences here. Friendly people!

“Strolling, People Watching, Ocean Watching its Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Main Beach in Laguna has a new kids play area and looks like they
are fixing the tower which is good but the wonderful ambience still remains after many years. Its a wonderful spot to stroll morning, afternoon or watching the sunset.

“Perfect beach for little ones”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Nice beach, short walking distance from public parking. Generally the waves are not as strong, or big as at Huntington Beach. There is a nice area at the end of the beach which my grandsons enjoy very much, shallow among rocks . Often see dolphins at play not far from the shoreline. Starbucks and Johnny Rockets Restaurant immediately across the street from the beach is an added attraction for me, ha ha. Often craft fairs along the walk.

“Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Parking in Laguna can be awful and expensive before 7pm. The boardwalk is always a fun place for a stroll.

“Not My Favorite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

It's a famous spot and lots of people flock there in the summer to play volleyball and sunbathe. A high number of homeless people live on the benches there. It's a nice place to pass by on the way to Heisler Park, which is just above Main Beach.
