Salt Creek Beach

In Orange County, we are blessed with a number of amazing beaches.  To say one of them is "the best" is impossible.  Each one has their own unique quality and you will never be disappointed, no matter where you go.  There is one beach though that does top the list as our family favorite, simply by memories. 

Nestled right below the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel, set between Laguna Beach and Dana Point, is Salt Creek Beach.  Why is this so special to us?  It is the beach I used to love in High School.  It is the beach where the hubby and I would run on when we first relocated back to Orange County and did not have any children yet.  It is the first beach we took family photos on.  It is the first beach each of our children have visited.  

What I love about this beach is that is tends to be off the between path for tourists so it is never crazy crowded.  I also love the views of beautiful homes and the Ritz behind you with the Pacific in front.  Sure you have to walk down a huge hill to get there (which means having to walk back up when you go home) but it is all worth it once you hit the sand.  The park also offers a huge grass area, volleyball court, basketball court, picnic areas and a snack shack.  All you need for a day of fun with the family.  We spent Labor Day there and I was able to snap some shots in between playing and relaxing.

Keep an eye out for next week's OC visit, one of my favorite shopping destinations.
