The surf, the light, the differing ages. From newborn to wheelchairs, the Boardwalk will welcome all. Volleyball and Basketball courts, games until darkness makes it nearly impossible to continue. Winter, kids in the water, how can they be that cold, yet they are laughing and...More

It’s all centered here. Food, fun, volleyball babes in brief bikinis. What more do you need? Watch the sunset. Walk on the beach. People watch as they watch you. Start your walking tour at the lifeguard tower. Recommended.

Main Beach is the largest and best-known beach in Laguna Beach. It is basically a tourist beach; in other words, most locals opt for the harder-to-access and more secluded (and therefore less crowded) beaches like 1,000 Steps and Wood’s Cove, especially during the summer season....More

The water was gorgeous!! The beach was clean. There were several families there. We could only do one beach day and I’m so glad we picked this beautiful beach to hang out on.

My son and I enjoyed strolling on the beach from our hotel to downtown and back. Clean, easily walkable beach without litter or sharp objects.

Busy beach with some action. Great people watching but it is crowded. So if you want to come for family picnic great spot.

Not like the huge beaches further up the coast, but also not as many people. Neat little town to visit as well.

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.
