Laguna takes care of its beaches. It was beautiful and easily accessible. Main beach had small waves which made it feel safe.

Parking can be a challenge but the beach is nice with nice pathways. There are areas where you can get high to really take in the view.

September is often the warmest month of the year. It will be amazing. Make sure your resort has air conditioning as a few of the older ones do not. If you are ocean front you wont need it with the breeze.
