Why Explore Little Corona Beach?
Picture yourself on a small, secluded beach surrounded by cliffs topped with lush vegetation overlooking the deep blue waters of the Pacific. No, you’re not on a private island, you’re in Orange County! Little Corona Beach is by no means secret, but the lack of parking means that you won’t have to pack onto the small area of sand in this paradise. Street parking along Poppy Avenue and Ocean Boulevard is available as well as several other streets in the area. Once you hop out of your car, make the short trek down the paved hill, and you’ll find yourself at this enchanting spot.
Pack a beach towel or two and get ready to take in some serious rays on Little Corona Beach. You can also take a dip in the Pacific to cool off before the small cave, a series of tide pools, and plenty of rocky coastline to the left side of the beach. Be careful while on the rocks as they can be slippery from the ocean water. Check the Little Corona Beach surf report before visiting. As for the weather—this is Southern California—you can almost always bank on it being sunny and beautiful outside!
