Stay in Historic Laguna Beach Homes at Crystal Cove State Park

Stay in historic Laguna Beach homes on the beach.Many people are attracted to Laguna Beach homes because of the great art scene, restaurants, and of course the great beaches. It’s lots of fun to hang out at Main Beach, sun bathing, playing in the waves, or surfing. However, to get away from the crowds, head to Crystal Cove State Park. The park preserves over three miles of unspoiled coastal Laguna Beach real estate. Come for relaxed beach walks or to play in the waves. It’s also a great spot for snorkeling or scuba diving. For a real “get away from it all” experience, plan a hike through Moro Canyon. This inland area of the park offers 15 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Get an incredible view of the beach on the paved trail along the bluffs.

Laguna Beach Real Estate Owners Relax at Crystal Cove

For a nice “staycation”, plan a camping trip at Crystal Cove. Located on the bluff, there are 27 hookup sites and 30 tent sites. Challenge yourself with a serious hike to the backcountry camping sites. There are 32 of them, spread over three acres. They offer visitors a unique experience of the scenery, plants, and wildlife at the park.

Plan a more civilized break at one of the 29 historic beach cottages. These Laguna Beach homes have been meticulously restored and offer a cozy place to stay for a few days.

Visit Crystal Cove State Park to learn more about visiting and to make reservations for camping or beach cottages.

To get up close and personal with the animals that make the waters around Dana Point home, schedule a whale watching trip with Captain Dave.

Rather, they have specially outfitted catamarans so passengers can get the best view of the dolphins and whales.
