  • A beautiful cove with fine a white sand beach and surrounded by bluffs. access is relatively easy so come early as the beach fills up early. don't forget the sunblock and check for reddening of the sk...  read more »
  • This is a nice little beach where you feel like you're on your own little tropical island. There are lots of places to explore on the rocks - we saw several different types of crabs and little tide po...  read more »
  • The tide pools were amazing, I'd say the best around. It's a great stop if you have small children. such a peaceful place. Cant wait to return 
  • The location and beach rank way up on the list of beaches, as far as the nature side of things. However, the secret is out :( During the summer and on weekends, it does get crowded. This beach does have a lifeguard during the busy season, but no other amenities (bathrooms, food, etc) Parking is hard, as most of Laguna's "hidden" spots are. This is a great spot when school is on and you don't mind packing things in like a mule ! Do have to deal with about 70 ft of stairs. Also, they do not let canopies over 6x6 on any of the beaches in Laguna. The standard umbrellas are fine. A good spot to scuba and snorkel.
  • I absolutely adore this beach. It has a cozy, private and welcoming touch. Can get crowded on weekends but never disturbingly packed or loud. Snorkeling is a lot of fun here. My first choice on Laguna's Beach shore.
  • We go early, swim, enjoy the view and leave... a perfect beach day. It's one of the benefits of living nearby in Aliso Viejo. .. we don't feel the need to spend the entire day. 1-2 hours is awesome (longer on some days of course).
  • Great place to scuba dive. Can be difficult to park during summer cuz of all the beach goers lol.
  • Amazing place it is a Great place to have aprivate Wedding. and to take Anniversary pictures...
