Cleanest beaches in the USA?! Beaches and Tide Pools Review

Favorite thing: After reading a sad article this morning about how polluted a lot of America's beaches have become,
I was pleased to at least see that Laguna Beach had some of the cleanest beaches in the country. Reference was this article here culled from a 2009 report by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Without too much dry boring info (read the report) most of the cooties come from control or more likely LACK of control of rain runoff that scoops up sewage (yum!) and other disgusting goodies from land and deposits them in the sand we all like to play in.

At any rate, if you read the report, you find most of Laguna's beaches rating a "5" (best / cleanest possible rating) with only the main right outside the Hotel Laguna getting a "4" (still excelllent).

No, I don't work for the Laguna COC, but I was very happy to read that nowadays you can still do whatever it is you like to do in the sand of Laguna's beaches, coves and tidepools without having to sweat what is happening to your health.

As long as I'm prostituting myself, just for grins here is a video from the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce here

Different Perspectives - Laguna Beach
Different Perspectives Beaches and Tide Pools Review

Favorite thing: Laguna Beach is a good place to get away from LA / Orange County/ Irvine hustle, especially during the weekdays before the weekend.

Nothing is more relaxing to me than walking barefoot on the beach,
sitting on the rocks out in the surf below the cliffs & watching the waves roll in,
or if you're lucky & the surf's up, watching the surfers glide in.

In the pic, just like in real life, if you squint you can just barely see Catalina island on the horizon.

Fondest memory: Decades ago as a kid I ran away from home with my special girlfriend and we stayed in Laguna Beach at the old Cliff Hotel above the beach for a couple of months.

Two different perspectives: then and now, but for me the overall feel of Laguna Beach has changed very little.
