We love living in Orange County. What with 42 miles of sand and a several beach towns, Orange County delivers on the Southern California beach experience.
Orange county is bordered by San Diego on the south and Los Angeles to the north. Orange county is famous for its blend of a casual, active lifestyle with laid-back sophistication. Great for watching famous surf breaks, family attractions, sun worshiping, or whale watching near these top Orange County beaches.
Huntington City Beach, Huntington Beach
There is a reason why we got the nickname “Surf City, USA” in the 1950’s! With 9.5 miles of sandy beaches and desirable breaks along our beaches, its one of the best beaches to visit in Southern California.
Huntington continues to be a mecca for wave riders across the globe.
Home to the Vans US Open of surfing, Hunting Beach is one of the most popular of the well-known beaches in the country
But, “Surf City, USA” is hardly just about surfing.
—but surfing is not the only game in town.
Near the famous 1,850-foot Huntington Beach Pier, you’ll see volleyball players spiking on the sand (the AVP Huntington Beach Open is held here), and runners, cyclists, and skateboarders taking advantage of the flat, paved 10-mile Ocean Strand. Wander to Main Street to find the latest in beach apparel or if hipster-chic boutiques and a gourmet food court are more your style, head to oceanfront shopping hub Pacific City, which opened in 2016.
The area offers a variety of ocean-view rooms, from classic resorts like the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort and Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa to the colorful and modern Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel and Paséa Hotel & Spa.
