Beach with easiest parking situation & hopefully cleanest water.
I'll be visiting Disneyland mid-July, and a visit to the beach is high on the list for the children that will be on the trip (ages 2 and 4)
Are any of the nearby beaches (Huntington/Newport and big & little corona beach) best when it comes to finding parking? This would be about lunchtime on a thursday if it matters.
Also, are any of the beaches much cleaner than the others as far as the water and available bathrooms go?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Re: Beach with easiest parking situation & hopefully cleanest water.
The water (pollution-wise) is pretty bad everywhere in SoCal.
It can also be pretty cold (60's or lower).
And, of course, the waves can be very powerful, especially to a 2-or 4-year-old.
I mean, it's no day at the beach, this beach-going thing!
Lunchtime Thursday shouldn't be too bad, parking-wise (weekend would be near impossible). Expect to pay $10-$15 to park, but the beach is free (unlike east coast shores).
The sand will be hot at that time, unless a June Gloom (fog) is still in play.
