So glad I stumbled across this gem when I first started visiting California 25 years ago. Have made a point to go every time I'm in the area sense.

We spent the afternoon here and enjoyed the surf as well as the sand. While sitting on the beach two young men were caught in the riptide and required rescuing by the lifeguard. This is a lovely place from which to watch the sunset.

If you can find parking, it’s a great place for kids and family outings. Play yard and lifeguards make this a good spot. Plan ahead! Lots of food options nearby such as Pizza Lounge.

Main beach has a nice flat beach to walk up too. Many beaches in Laguna have stairs. This beach has volleyball courts and basketball courts. Located by the famous lifeguard tower, access to shopping and restaurants.

Loved the views and cleanliness. Short walks to tidepools during low tide too. Saw dolphins our first day and a seal hanging on bird rock the 2nd day. Only complaint is the busy road and crazy drivers. Beach is beautiful and well kept!

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.
