I’m the first to admit I absolutely hate sand. I avoid parks with sand like the plague. It’s practically sacrilege for someone who lives by the beach. And on the same note, for someone who lives by the beach, we hardly ever go. I’m sorry I am just so OCD. I can’t stand messes. I am borderline pyschotic about cleaning as most people figure out pretty quickly!
But when my sign sister (Aquarius mama like me) came into town well we had to do what people do when they visit Orange County…go to the beach. Out of all of the beautiful beaches in South OC, I love Baby Beach because it’s easy to get to. You just park and walk right onto the sand. It has calm water which is great for little kids. It’s right by the Ocean Institute so some great tidepooling is right around the corner. You get to see the ships as well. They have covered picnic tables, showers, bathrooms and nice walkways for a leisure stroll. You could even walk all the way down to the Dana Point Harbor as well. What I love about Dana Point beaches is that parking is usually free! This beach has two small lots so get there early on weekends.
