“touristy and locals enjoying the sun/surf”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

way crowded with mostly tourists but that's OK - why peeps come to LB ! and the OC coast... basketball courts, with a 'wait period' for use.. easy access but beach sand area is quite small and lots of seaweed on the sand. shallow entrance to the water makes it ok for younger kids and , almost protected from large waves 2nd to cliffs and tide pools within walking distance !

“Loved it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

It was a really nice beach. Lots of activity going on, people walking and picnicking. Didn't have a lot of time to spend but would love to go back for the day.

“Go to see and be seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

This is a very un-California beach. The beach is at street level with no cliff in-between. If the weather's nice, the beach is crowded and there's a lot of people watching. The commercial part of Laguna is near by. Parking can be tough on weekends.

“All In One Enjoyment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

The beach offered everything our Family enjoys from basketball and volleyball courts to a playground with swings and areas to picnic. We had a great family time. We also loved that it was not crowded.

“Like walking through a painting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Let's face it, Main Beach, Laguna is one of the most photographed/painted beaches in all of California and there is good reason for it. The curves of the shoreline, the rocks & palms are aligned just perfectly! It's gorgeous, plain and simple. Being able to walk here daily is a true blessing.
