  • Stopped in Laguna on the way to La Jolla and so glad we did. Amazing views, good food, and good shopping. This park has stunning panoramic views. 
  • There are numerous locations to enjoy a view of the ocean, but noon are as easy as Heisler. You can park, and then walk a hundred feet to watch the surfers, or people walking by. Since you do not need...  more »
  • This walk goes for 1/2 mile north from the beach in downtown Laguna Beach. It has some gentle ups and downs, beautiful landscaping and a number of places to sit or have a picnic. Views are wonderful. ...  more »

  • By far one of the most scenic beach cliff parks in this big wide country. Perfect for photos, engagement shoots, or take your out of town friends on a stroll. If you stop by in Laguna Beach, this park is definitely a must. Beautiful views, colorful plants, and the ocean right on your footsteps. There are a few metered parking spots (not that many), and if you want to access the park from the beach it's a steep walk up some stairs... but totally worth it. Beautiful!
  • My daughter and I love to walk along the trails. There are times we have seen a number of rabbits that she loves. The beach is very nice, clean and not crowded. It's truly a lovely place and kid friendly.
  • Great spot to take in the sunset! My fiance and I got tacos to go from Tortilla Republic and got an early seat on a park bench to watch the sun go down. Very clean and well kept park with multiple benches and a couple of sculptures. A walkway that winds through the park with grass areas and public grills. The surrounding area has multiple shops and places to eat.
  • Heisler Park is a great place in Laguna Beach a lot of hiking running and you can go down a bunch of stairs to the beach. beautiful views of the gorgeous sea below. This is a very cool place to take awesome pictures
  • Laguna Beach's famous cliff-side sculpture park now hosts Sukhdev Dail's lovely "Sea Breeze", installed in 2015 and replacing "Watch Your Toes" (2011) by Jon Seeman.
