Best Parks in Laguna Beach

, 5 Options Found

A short walk from the bustling downtown Laguna Beach, this park is an amazing hidden oasis. The grassy bluff and the sandy beach with giant rocks and hidden caves make this park a favorite spot for photographers, sunset watchers, picnickers, and even seabirds. There are also a variety of art stands selling local artwork. Reconnect with nature, take a walk, or simply enjoy a lovely barbeque with your family in Heisler Park. Furthermore, with plenty of parking options, the park is convenient and great to visit with the entire family.

A small but beautifully landscaped park hidden behind an upscale neighborhood, Crescent Bay Point Park is a breath of fresh air. With staggering ocean and beach views, a secluded beach, and some of the cleanest water on the Pacific Coast, it is a delight for locals and tourists, particularly nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Some of the frequent visitors of the bay are sea birds, sea lions, dolphins, and migrating whales between December and March, giving visitors plenty of opportunities to witness these majestic creatures in action.

Crystal Cove State Park spans 3.2 miles (5.15 kilometers) of beach and over 2000 acres (809.37 hectares) of wilderness. Visitors to the park can relax on the beach, hike or go horseback riding on the many trails that criss-cross the verdant landscape. Explore tide pools and hidden coves as well as canyon flora and fauna. Finally, the crystal clear waters have been designated as an underwater park and are great for scuba diving, skin diving, and underwater photography, thus covering all aspects of outdoor exploration.

Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is a locals' favorite for hiking and biking, especially during spring when a spectrum of wildflowers bloom. This 7,000-acre wilderness preserve boasts a diverse landscape, from rolling hills and rugged canyons to lush woodlands and sweeping ocean vistas. This area features Barbara's Lake, Orange County's only natural lake. With "wilderness" in its name, it's no surprise that pets are not allowed in the park. The lucky ones may delight in spotting deer, bobcats, and weasels. Laguna Coast Wilderness Park provides an ideal setting for nature walks, picnics, and simply enjoying the tranquility of the great outdoors.

The panoramic view of the wilderness and the Pacific from Hortense Miller Garden is second to none. Yet, the view is not quite what makes it a treasure of Laguna Beach. The character of the garden and the house truly reflect Hortense Miller's love of nature. The garden spreads across 2.5 acres ( 1 hectare) on the upper slope of Boat Canyon and has over 1000 plant species that grow with limited usage of fertilizers and chemical controls. In the middle of the garden, a simple but elegant house wrapped with floor-to-ceiling glass quietly enjoys the company of its best decorator: nature. Ensure that you book a ticket on their website before planning a visit.
