Laguna Beach Vacation
A Laguna Beach vacation is the perfect California small-town getaway. Travelers from around the world have discovered its miles of clean sandy beaches, artists, galleries, shopping, dining and annual festivals.
The seaside village of Laguna Beach is located mid-way between Los Angeles and San Diego, where 25,000-plus residents include hundreds of local working artists and unique crafts and gift shops. People who live here seek the tranquility of beachside living as well as unending cultural opportunities. Art and music events are staged throughout the year, and Laguna Beach has an art museum and a live stage theater.
Perfect for Laguna Beach vacations, the coastline is dotted by more than two dozen B & B’s, hotels, seaside villas and full-service beach & golf resorts. There are accommodations for every taste and style.
With a variety of Laguna Beach vacation activities, the shoreline offers the greatest number of local public beaches of any California coastal community. The list includes the northern beaches of Rockpile, Irvine Cove, Shaw's Cove, Boat Canyon, Diver's Cove, Picnic Beach and Crescent Bay. Central Beaches include St. Ann's Street, Thalia Street, (which sandwich the Laguna Riviera Beach Resort), Main Beach, Sleepy Hollow, Oak Street, Brook's Street and Mountain Road Beach. On the south side of Laguna beaches include: Bluebird Canyon, Pearl Street, Wood's Cove, Moss Point, Rockledge, Victoria Beach and Treasure Island. Operated under the City of Laguna Beach Lifeguard Services, a premier force of lifeguards watches the coastline diligently.
Laguna Beach has long-established restaurants and extraordinary choices in many ethnic cuisines. It’s one of the best dining destinations in Southern California.
Our personal favorites are: Cafe Zoolu, Mozambique, Tabu Grill, Ristorante Rumari, Five Feet, Picayo, and so many more.
Laguna Beach is Orange County’s jewel and the Laguna Riviera is located just 75 minutes south of Los Angeles. Laguna Beach’s closest airport is John Wayne/Orange County Airport--located just 20 minutes away. Travelers also arrive from Los Angeles International Airport or Long Beach and San Diego airports.
Visiting Laguna Beach is only challenging because there is never enough time to stay and to see everything. From porpoise to whale watching, art festivals, historical tours and wilderness parks you’ll stay busy. But there’s no need to stay busy when you are at the beach. That’s why they call it a vacation.
