Orange County Beaches near Anaheim: Simply Paradise

It’s no secret why Southern California beaches are visited by travelers from all over the world - they’re among the most beautiful on the planet.

Whether you enjoy playing in the ocean, exploring local towns and taking in the spectacular views, or simply soaking up the sun and sinking your feet in the sand, the top beaches near Anaheim are pure paradise for everyone who visits. Here's a quick look at some of our favorites. 

Huntington Beach
Huntington Beach is known as Surf City USA for good reason. The beach town’s surf culture is second to none, so whether you’re a die-hard surfer or first-timer looking to jump in with a lesson, it’s the place to be. Laying back and watching the surfers on their endless quest to find the perfect wave isn’t a bad way to spend the day, either!

Laguna Beach
Laguna Beach is picturesque, to say the least. The community, which was discovered by a group of landscape painters in the 1920s, is a top choice today for its shopping, stunning mansions and fantastic views.

San Clemente
With its Spanish-style architecture, visiting San Clemente feels like a trip to another country. 20 acres of beaches, a 1,200-foot-long fishing pier, quaint sidewalk cafes and unique shops make San Clemente one of the most charming, family-friendly beach communities in the OC.

Seal Beach
If you’re searching for a quieter spot to escape to, Seal Beach offers that hometown appeal. It’s a great place for kitesurfing and windsurfing, too!

Whether you’re visiting Orange County for a long beach vacation with the family, or taking a short trip with your partner, there’s no better starting point than the Marriott Suites Anaheim. Our first-class amenities and accommodations invoke a home-away-from-home atmosphere and we’re conveniently located near so many of these favorite California beaches.

You can even walk through the world’s largest ornament and take a ride on the world’s largest rocking horse!

There’s plenty of fun for adults too, making Winter Fest OC the perfect destination for work parties, date night in Anaheim and outings with friends. The SoCal Dickens experience offers a taste of the holidays in Victorian England, featuring over a dozen unique shops, traditional English foods, ballroom dancing and high tea.
