Such a historic gem on the coast. A preserved sea side resort with cabins for rent on the beach. Gorgeous dunes and plants surround the property.

We enjoyed our visit to Cyrstal Cove State Park. We walked in and followed the trails. Many places with signage to tell about the area, wildlife and history. There is a sandy beach with a restaurant, rocky hills, rocks to explore and even a cave.

We bicycled into the park (avoid the 10 dollar fee entrance fee). Great trails and we could see whale off the coast.

This is a State Beach park that requires a small fee for entrance. The area has lots of hiking trails and nice beach area without rocks that is fairly shallow water with a gentle surf. We walked a mile one way and two miles the other way which has some rocky areas where you can view some marine life that... More

We are in Orange County several times a year to visit our son and we always make time to visit Crystal Cove State Park. It is the kind of place that I could visit daily for the rest of my life and never grow tired of. The park is actually quite large and encompasses bluffs overlooking the Pacific as well... More
