So far this is hands down one of my favorite California beaches to go to. I live about 15 minutes away but this beach has so many options for parking. Lately I’ve been going Saturday mornings to the area with the volleyball nets and there are always people playing. Plenty of street parking and lots available for hourly pay. I’ve gone at night to the fire pit area pay a few bucks to park and you’re set for a sunset. What I also like around this beach is the food options. You have a stretch of restaurants and also pacific city with lots to do and eat around there. All in all the beach is clean and plenty of space to just lay and chill.

Great beach close to Disney. Large wide open and flat beach perfect for families and friends! Had fire pits, volleyball nets and bike rentals. Nice paved walkway to bike, walk and rollerblade. There is even a handicap access point to get from the walkway to the waters edge. Public restrooms and ample parking even RV hookup spots. Some homeless hanging around but didn’t feel unsafe.

It was a nice beach. Long walks, swim in the ocean and picnic in the sand. I would do it all again in a hearts beat.

There were people fishing off the pier, kids on inter tubes in the water, teens taking pictures, people tanning, people jogging, picnics, some were under tents to block out some of the sun, older couples walking on pier. No trash on the beach. Lifeguard present. Seemed very safe. We got there late in day and signs said parking lot was full, but we did find a spot. You have to pay for parking by the hour, but it was less than $5.

Love that it is a short drive from Disneyland without getting on those crazy California freeways. We have been to the city beach in Huntington which is also great, but the state beach felt less touristy and a little more natural. It is huge so you will have plenty of room to spread out. The beach is clean and well maintained, and the city itself is a lovely little town. Our trips to the OC are never complete without a little beach time. It is the Pacific, so be prepared for chilly water no matter the season.

The beaches are stunningly clean. No homeless and they have a dog beach that the dogs can go off leash at. We had so much fun, can't wait to go back.

It's a dirty beach covered with cigarettes and trash.The atmosphere is often threatening of physical harm. Go to another beach.

Easy parking and a delightful, relaxed day at the beach -- we enjoyed sunshine and rain during our visit!
