Corona del Mar State Beach is one of the hidden treasures of Orange County. Meaning 'Crown of the Sea' in Spanish, this stretch of coast certainly lives up to its name. The beach is separated by dramatic cliffs into 'Big Corona' and 'Little Corona'. Big Corona offers white sandy beach perfect for sunbathing while Little Corona offers stunning rocky coves, tidepools and arches.
The Sherman Library and Gardens is a beautiful botanical garden on the Orange County Coast in Corona del Mar. Orchids, roses, ferns, succulents, tropical vegetation and desert cacti are displayed among beautifully landscaped fountains, patios and grotto's. Though only 2 acres, the Sherman Collection is expansive and stunning.
