Best southern ca beach?

Huntington, Newport or Laguna Beach? We will be going to the Santa Monica pier. Thanks!

Laguna Beach. Huntington was kind of boring compared to laguna. Laguna has tide pools and cool cliffs etc. Newport is nice too but if I had to choose one, it'd be laguna.

It really depends on you. Kids? Time of year? Planning to go in the ocean? What's important -- people watching, activities nearby, access?

We will be going in June and I have 3 girls ages 2, 6 and 10. We are going mainly to relax on the beach and just walk around since we are from Alaska. Nothing special. Lol

I've been to all three many times, and with kids, I'd definitely vote for Newport! I created a Newport thread a while ago - it might help a bit! http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2895078

I really like Newport, also. They have shops/restaurants, places to rent boogie boards, etc., and the waves are kind of mild, which are nice when you have children.

Does anyone know anything about Seal Beach?

Is it anywhere near Disneyland area OR worth checking out?

Seal Beach is the next area north of Huntington Beach, so it's in the area. I haven't been there in years. Every beach is nice -- it's a matter of taste and what you want to do around the beach area.

Seal Beach is nice, and there is a street leading up to it, Main Street, that has some nice shops and places to eat.
