Directions
Corona Del Mar Beach Directions From Broadway turn right heading west on PCH. Corona Del Mar is several miles down PCH. Corona Del Mar is past Laguna Beach and past Crystal Cove. When you will find yourself going into an area where there are businesses along PCH you will be very close. Turn left at poppy street and follow it to ocean. Take ocean right (west) till you reach the grassy park area and decide if parking is available. These direction assume that you are coming from the Laguna Beach area (where you stopped off at the dive shop to say hi). If you are going directly to this beach it is more appropriate to exit the 73 freeway at MacArthur heading south. Continue till you reach Coast Highway and turn left. Turn right at Marguerite and continue till you reach ocean.
Parking
