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.

If your headed to Laguna this main beach is always busy and fun to people watch. The beach part is not huge but there’s a basketball court and usually has someone playing .. Is such a cute stop along the PCH.

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.
