Best Fireside Spots in OC

Grab the marshmallows and let’s get toasty! Enjoying cooler nights by the fire is a great way to enjoy the season. Thanks to its 42 miles of sandy coastline, Orange County is home to a number of locations perfect for a bonfire.

Aliso Beach Fire Pits: 31131 S. Pacific Coast Hwy., Laguna Beach, CA 92652

This smaller beach is located in Laguna, with a paid parking lot directly in front of beach access. It’s the perfect place for family as the little ones can hang out at the park while the adults set up. There are limited fire pits and they are on a first come, first serve basis. Make sure to snag your pit early and enjoy the beautiful views of the sandy cliffs and the sunset.  


Huntington State Beach: E. Pacific Hwy and Magnolia St. Huntington, CA 92646

With a much larger selection, Huntington State Beach has plenty of fire pits located along the beach available for use every day from 6am – 10pm.  


San Clemente City Beaches: San Clemente only has 8 fire pits located on three city beaches. Beach hours are from 6am to 10 pm daily and reservations are based on first come first serve.
