    Best family beach to visit during DL trip

    Hey all, we've got a week at DL and one day to spare, which we'd like to use to drive to the coast. Which beach(es) are the best/convenient/family-friendly?

    In Laguna Beach theres Main Beach and Aliso Beach which are the only two beaches that still have lifeguards on the weekends. If you want to go to some nicer less crowded beaches pm me for more info.

    There was a discussion in the trip planning area. Here's the link: Fun beaches within 1-2 hrs. drive of Anaheim?
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    We went to Huntington Beach while we were there a few weeks ago. It was nice, although the water was absolutely freezing!!

    Agreed....Laguna Beach (main beach) is our favorite....clean sand, etc.

    When looking this one up, be aware that Corona del Mar is actually a part of Newport Beach. You can probably find it by looking CDM or NB up on the internet, but just so you aren't confused. Corona del Mar is Corona del Mar.......but again, still part of Newport Beach, but not the Newport Beach with the pier........there, now in my effort to eliminate confusion - I have probably confused you more. I hope not

    Have fun!

    Treasure Island beach down in front of the Montage Resort in Laguna. It's a public beach that happens to be maintained by the 5 star resort.

    Quick note: it is a rare day when the water is not "freezing" or under 70 degrees F. That is not a lake. That is a large body of water with a current usually coming from Alaska.

    Today, right now, according to the internets, 65 degrees at Balboa, Dana Point, San Clemente, and Oceanside.
    Compare with 83 degrees in honolulu, 79 in St Augustine FL, 76 in Charleston SC, and 72 at Chesapeak Bay Bridge Tunnel VA.
