Imagine spending a sunny summer afternoon on a nearly empty beach in Orange County, looking out across the shimmering blue-green water of the Pacific Ocean, with no screaming kids, no trash trucks, no gas fumes from a parking lot, no overwhelmingly large church groups taking over and sand that is actually the color of sand. It may seem like a fantasyland, but if you're willing to do a bit of scouting, you'll discover that such places do still exist along our ever-developing coastline. Crescent Bay in north Laguna Beach is one such option. Turn on Cliff Drive, stay to the right, and park where you can.
