We parked in a on-street meter spot a block away from the beach. Main beach has a nice wide sidewalk right along the beach. We visited on a Friday, so the crowd was manageable. Beach was clean and plenty of activities for the kids (volleyball, waves, slides & swings, food & drink). An on-shore breeze kept the temperatures cooler than... More

This is the centrepiece of a spectacular public park system that runs along the coast of Laguna Beach. You can walk up and down the beach for a kilometre or two in either direction, if you don't mind scrambling over some rocks at high tide. The trail continues along the cliffs to the north, with spectacular gardens and views that... More

Lovely small beach to walk hand in hand with your sweetheart. We could walk from Downtown to the stairs at our Resort. Short walk but enjoyable. There was a pod of frolicking dolphins right at the surf edge the day we were checking out and we could watch from our balcony. Never seen this at any beach before. Lots of... More

Laguna Beach is a very charming village with very nice beaches and nice shops. There are many art shops and galleries. It deserves a visit if you are in LA area.

Parking is a challenge you will most likely have to pay for street parking via meter which does not last long enough for a day at the beach. I suggest a paid parking lot across the street. These are multi level buildings next to banks and shopping centers that allow beach parking. Main beach is very crowded and has nice... More
