Laguna Beach is one of the most beautiful beach cities in all of California. Why?

Most the beaches are located at the base of hills where houses, hotels, and coastal cliffs offer stunning views.

Laguna Beach is known for many things. It has the most beaches of any city in California, and many offer tidepool exploring, plus there's some scuba diving. It has an active arts community. It has the Pageant of the Masters, an outdoor theater show each summer in which actors are dressed and set into famous paintings throughout history. And it has a lively surfing community, as well.

Located in Orange County, California, Laguna Beach is one of the most popular tourist destinations near Disneyland in Anaheim, primarily because of the beaches that are either on the sand or very close by.

When you go, be sure to spend time shopping. The downtown shopping area runs along Pacific Coast Highway and features eclectic, youthful, artistic and contemporary gifts. Dining ranges from affordable Americana to fish and Asian influence. Restaurants are located along the Coast Highway and down the streets near the beach, with some offering world class ocean views.

For luxury accommodations, one of the most expensive hotels in all of California is Montage Resort in South Laguna Beach. A public park next to the property provides coastal access for tourists to enjoy. Affordable hotels such as Holiday Inn and the majority of the hotel options in the city allow you to book a beach vacation, and still be able to spend time and money at Disneyland and other attractions.
