  • One of the most beautiful parks in Orange County. From the views of the southern coast of California to the amazing beaches and tide pools below. The park has some great art work, a gazebo to get married in, a path to walk and see the entire park and. Great picnic area in the middle. I always enjoy just strolling through the park and ending in fisherman’s cove.
  • We had a great time in this park. All the family enjoyed it. Next time I'll come with some meat and prepare a barbecue on site. Great ocean view. The public restrooms were very acceptable.
  • One of the best places in OC for a ocean view walk. Beautiful vistas, lots of picnic areas, beautiful landscaping. The parking is easily available just about 2 - 3 blocks inland when the town is crowded.
  • This is one of my favorite beach experiences in southern California. My kids love to explore the tide pools st low tide. The parking is easy to get in and out of and there is plenty of it available along cliff drive. The areas around the beach are clean and well maintained and the natural features of the beach are beautiful and interesting. It is certainly one of my favorite places in California.
  • We usually come for the beach but the park is lovely for a walk and a view. The streets can get a little crowded but totally worth it for the view and location. Just be aware that if you are wanting beach access, there are multiple ramps/stairs and one of them is for surfers only.
