good place to start you tour of Laguna Beach.

No bad. A little crowded at time but a nice beach to experience. Great start on your journey through Laguna.

A year round destination beach for "solo" or family! Versatile with beauty, sand and board walk, swimming, sun bathing, volleyball and basketball. Holiday and every day memories!

No parking at beach and finding off site parking is very difficult. We were there on a Friday in early November, can't imagine what it would be like at busier times. Nice beach, but I think some of the other beaches in Laguna are prettier.

Sitting on this beach is sweet, after walking around Laguna shopping areas. The ocean view is beautiful and the area usually is not too crowded. Take a fun walk up the beach to some of the ocean front hotels. Very nice area!

Great people watching. Big waves. Able to access town. Some coves close by where can see sea urchins and other sea life.

Central to restaurants and shopping, Main Beach is a great place to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee from the Starbucks across the street, and take in the view.

Although it is beautiful for a downtown beach, it is crowded, noisy and difficult to find parking. Drive south a few miles and go to Table Rock or 1,000 Steps for a REAL Laguna experience. But if you are shopping in town, it is worth crossing PCH and taking in the view.
