Meet an out of town client there for sinner. Great views with amazing sunset and perfect laguna beach environment. Food is great, but priced for views. Great place to show off Laguna Beach for visitors to So. Cal.

The reason to go to Splashes is the view. There are multiple levels, but the lowest is just above the sand in Laguna Beach with, if you sit right, infinity views of the ocean. We had a view of Catalina the night we were there....More
