“Family tradition”

Corona Del Mar State Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Being a Utah landlubber, we have made this beach an annual vacation destination for almost eight years! We also visit Laguna beach and Dana Point. All are totally family friendly and economical (if you shop carefully). Corona is our favorite. Very easy access with clean restrooms and plenty of space even on busy days. Fun place!

Tucked in below an upscale residential area, the beach is big enough for crowds but feels cozy. Charges to park in the lot, reasonable amount on a weekday. Turkey sandwich at the snack shop was pretty good. Bathroom was clean (a standard beach bathroom). Beach has showers. Good for beach combing; and for those taking longer walks, go up to street level and take in the homes and the views. Would definitely recommend for families with small kids for the overall amenities which inevitably become an issue with little ones.

Everything about Corona del Mar is adorable. I'd live there today if I could. The beach is great, the town is sweet. I am really looking forward to going back to explore more.

Its a steep walk way but we made it and thank goodness there was a potty at the bottom. We had a great time exploring!

A very smart, quiet location. Stunning clifftop views, massive beach, stupendous houses, not much around the quiet beach area
