    Pay for parking before you leave the car! I forgot and got a fat ticket! Also don't try to walk this beach it's really soft and kinda hard to. Sit and chill, it's beautiful!

    It's a wonderful family beach and the waves are gentle for the most part. Great place for bonfires and beginner surfing.

    Bring your beach/water shoes. Beach is loaded with rocks that hurt your bare feet.

    The Battle of the Paddle is an incredible stand up paddle event held at Doheny State Beach where the best in the world come to compete. It is held annually in late September.

    This is the grossest beach in Orange County. It's filled with homeless drifters. It's next to the LA river drain off. Ew. Go straight to San Clemente or Laguna. All the beaches there are gorgeous.

    Excellent beach for bonfires, walks, etc... Just bring flip flops because there are a lot of rocks.. Love it here though. ;)

    If you want to camp here you should call a few months in advance. The perfect rv camping spot to watch the surfers and beautiful sunsets.

    There is nothing quite as picture perfect as a walk or bike ride by the calm shores of Doheny. Great place for a BBQ in the summer!
