Crystal Cove State Park is a pristine, protected 3.2-mile stretch of beach and 2,400 acres of wilderness and underwater marine park in Orange County. Crystal Cove State Park is accessed from the Pacific Coast Highway between Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach. Nature lovers will not want to miss the scenery, natural beauty and peace that can be found in this coastal California paradise. History buffs will also love visiting Crystal Cove State Park, as it contains a historic seaside colony near Los Trancos Creek, consisting of 46 vintage beach cottages. This community dates back to the 1930s.
Hikers, bikers, and equestrians have nearly 15 miles of serene backcountry trails to explore that offer beautiful ocean and forest views.
