Main Beach Park( Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times / January 21, 2013 )
7. Beaches of Laguna. If fate placed you in beachy, artsy Laguna Beach this afternoon, would you jump in the ocean first or start prowling galleries? If you choose No. 1, begin by taking the measure of Main Beach at Pacific Coast Highway and Broadway. Besides lots of body-surfing, skim-boarding, volleyball on the sand and half-court hoops on two of the best-sited courts in California, it's a scene of romantic strolls and playing children, all at the foot of a blue-and-white lifeguard tower that dates to the '20s.
