This is a sweet place to stop and take it all in. Pack a lunch and go head out for an afternoon with the kids. Beautiful beach and I would camp out next time. Was here in the winter so it wasn't crowded at all. Can't say the same in the summer. So take advantage of the season and you...

Trails were relatively well marked...trail descriptions were accurate in terms of the effort needed for the hikes. Great view of the ocean on your way back via the elevated trail(s). Would definitely recommend for novice hikers and/or those looking for a workout.

The state park has an absolutely gorgeous beach not far from the center of town. The campground is on a cliff and offers a stunning panorama of the ocean. Our site was specious and relatively secluded and offered access to a wrap around trail with cliff views galore. Keep In mind that for campgrounds you pay a price ($50+ a...

Beautiful beach-- my work/family trip highlights happened here! Spent hours walking the beach, discovering critters in the tidal pools and gorgeous cave! The beach's clean, refreshing sand and water splashes as my 11 and 13 year olds splashed, ran, cartwheeled along with myself and husband! Easy parking, stairways/ path and bathrooms provided ease of hiking/ nature experience!

It's my second time here and the hike got better! I got off to an early start and enjoyed cool weather for the majority of my journey. Although I got a little lost some mountain bikers pointed me in the right direction. I'll miss this beautiful spot when we head home tomorrow!

Nestled between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach is the Crystal Cove State Beach. There are two small parking lots, each accessible from both directions off Pacific Coast Hwy. They can be full mid day during summer months and parking is pricey for short visits at $15 day. If you plan to visit this beach or several other state beaches and/or...

What better way to get your kids excited about science the letting them dive right in. The tide pools are exciting and fun, and not to mention, educational. Kids are curious and love to learn when faced with curiosity. Get out and learn about the amazing world around you. The sea is teaming with life that shows the magnificence of...

This park has multiple parts to it. There is the historic cottage portion which is now run by the state that allows you to rent nights at beach cottages literally on the beach. Then there is a park portion that has riperian wilderness allowing horses, mountain bijers and hiking. It makes for a nice hike when you hike the ridges...

Shower and bathroom across hall. It is a community kitchen, clean and well stocked. Inside seating or beautiful ocean view balcony sitting. There are handicap rooms available...

Went there at to catch a sunset, what a great place. Parking is $15 but well worth it. We entered and parked on the south side, steep walk down to the beach. Very secluded in October, beautiful sunset. Walk north and head towards the end and it is an easy walk up. You walk along the golf course and then...
