Its like stepping back in History to a simpler cleaner time. The Beach walk is one of my favourites and as a matter of fact it becomes a daily ritual when in Newport Beach

The view is fantastic. It is not crowded. One can walk the beach for a long way without a crowd. There are old cabins that are from the 1950's era with the old time radio, refrigerator with coil on the top, etc. One can rent a cabin for overnight. (I have not done that). There is a nice restaurant with... More

This is a wonderful each early in the morning, it is a State Park and is best to get there early to avoid the crowds. There is a restaurant called the "Beachcomer" that had Breakfast Lunch and dinner. Nothing but Seaglass can be picked up from this beach as it is protected. I Love collecting Seaglass, picking it up along... More

Visiting this place with my family during the holidays, the weather was nice, cool, and sunny... the walk along the beach was nice... and the scenery in general was beautiful... got a few interesting pictures of the seagulls, sanderlings, and the scenery

Crystal Cove is comprised of both a beach as well as a network of trails that extend into the foothills above Laguna Beach. I only visited the trail network, so my review focuses on that. I rode most of the trails on my mountain bike during my trip to Laguna Beach. The trails are well maintained are mostly fire roads,... More

You can walk along the ocean or on the path on the cliff. Either way, you are walking along the ocean and enjoying the CA coast. It's relaxing and beautiful. This park was my favorite and we went back a second time. I wish I lived near it, I would walk there every day!

Although PCH goes right through the park and it's just minutes from Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar, Crystal Cove is a true nature retreat. The beaches below the cliffs are spectacular. The mountain hiking and biking area is rugged and beautiful. We've even backpacked there! The bungalows are hard to reserve, but the area is great to visit. The... More

This is such a great spot. We paid $5 for an hour but I think it was $15 for all day parking. We came on a Tuesday so it was pretty empty. They have trials where lots of walkers/ joggers take advantage of the great weather. The beach is very clean... so two thumbs up for that. They had a... More
