Take in the unspoiled natural beauty of southern California's coastline at Crystal Cove. The 1,592 ha (3,936 ac) park offers 5.1 km (3.2 mi) of clean beaches and tide pools, as well as a 566 ha (1,400 ac) marine conservation area and bluffs and canyons throughout. Take a shuttle from the parking lot along the highway to avoid the strenuous walk down to the shore. The surf is gentle and ideal for swimming, boogey boarding, and searching for shells and sea creatures. Visit the restored cottages in the Crystal Cove Historic District to see where people first settled before southern California had its population boom. If you plan in advance, these quaint cottages can be rented out quite affordably. Plan a trip to Laguna Beach easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
