Like OMG, it’s Laguna Beach

May 11, 2011

Forget the Orange County stereotype of bottle blondes and plastic
surgery; Laguna Beach is the best of California cool. Herewith, our
favourite boho beach town spots.


The Surf
and Sand Resort
defines laid-back luxury. With aqua-inspired decor,
all of the spacious rooms have balconies with a spectacular ocean view
(our bellboy even pointed out a dolphin on the horizon). After watching
the sunset on the beach, head to the pool deck for cocktail hour in a
cabana. Do make dinner reservations at Splashes Restaurant and be sure
to request a table on the patiothe best spot to nosh on the fresh
California fare, like Dungeness crab and apple salad. From $405,


Stocked with hard-to-find brands like Rodebjer, Suno
and Vena Cava, 11th Moon’s
mix of ultra-stylish contemporary pieces will have you longing for one
of each. But here’s a fashionable silver lining: its online shop ships
to Canada, so you can get your boho-chic fix any time you like. 1259 S.
Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach,

Curated to perfection, Laguna Supply carries a great selection of Isabel
Marant (and her husband Jerome Dreyfuss’ satchels), along with other big
names Elizabeth and James, Rag & Bone and Trovata. This summer look for
plenty of military pieces, stripes and pops of colour. 210 Beach St.,
Laguna Beach, 949-497-8850.


One look at the windows of Sound
record shop and it’s clear reggae reigns supreme. A Laguna
Beach fixture since 1967, owner Jim Otto has his own Sunday afternoon
radio show and Sound Spectrum’s sales chart is published weekly in The
Laguna Independent. Who knew listening stations and flipping through
vinyl could make us feel so young. 1264 S. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach,
