This is overlooking one of my favorite beaches in Orange County. So I'd greatly appreciate it if you went about your day and stayed well clear of this beach. Parking will be challenging on a typically beautiful sunny day, which will certainly happen in the summer and may surprise you any day of the year. So, yeah, don't go here.

Wonderful, peaceful place to hang out and do people watching and see the ocean. It is also a great place to take a photo as there are stairs that take you up so you get a full view of the area. Parking is a bit hard but I suggest that you go for the paid parking and save your self... More

We were here in October for about 4 hours, and while there were two groups of protestors that hung out on the edge of the beach, it was otherwise young people, families and retirees all enjoying sun and surf. The beach was quite clean and there were lots of activities on the outskirts for basketball, volleyball, and catch. Surfers were... More

I am so happy I found this recommendation!! It was definitely worth visiting, and I got some beautiful pictures of the beach and landscape. As many reviewers posted, parking is quite limited, so get there early. As most of Laguna Beach, this Vista Point is nestled into a residential neighborhood, so there is only a certain amount of "street" parking.... More

This is a less-touristy beach in Laguna Beach with limited access and parking on the street. Great for swimming and snorkeling.

This is one to take folks from out of town to visit. Located high above Crescent Beach this little park is the place for a Sunset Picnic. Beautiful views both north and south. No beach access.

Finding Crescent Bay Point Park is not easy. There is a small blue sign on Pacific Highway indicating "vista point". But it's worth visiting. It is a 180 degree view from the bluff of the Laguna coastline. The little park is beautifully landscaped. Best of all, it is not busy. Most of the time, you will have it all to... More

This quiet vista point is tucked away in North Laguna and offers a spectacular view of the breach and wildlife. Southern California at it's best.

Beautiful clean beach but not the best place to come with small children. Waves were huge at this beach and the current was just way too strong! I didn't feel safe letting my 7 year old play in a foot of water. Heck I didn't even feel that safe. If your going just for the views then it's perfect but... More
