Orange, California, nestled in the heart of Orange County, may not be directly located on the coastline, but it’s a stone's throw away from some of the most picturesque beaches in Southern California. This proximity offers residents and tourists alike a chance to experience the sandy shores, striking sunsets, and perfect waves that the Golden State is famous for. If you're wondering which beaches to head to during your stay in Orange, here are the top five:
Perhaps the most iconic beach near Orange, Huntington Beach offers miles of uninterrupted coastline and is a haven for surfers, earning it the nickname "Surf City, USA". It boasts the famous Huntington Beach Pier, where visitors can enjoy views of the Pacific and watch talented surfers catch waves. The beach is also home to annual surfing competitions, beach volleyball tournaments, and plenty of shops and restaurants along its Main Street, making it a lively destination year-round.
A mere 15-mile drive from Orange, Newport Beach provides a mix of luxury and laid-back beach vibes. From the upscale shops at Fashion Island to the historic Newport Pier, there’s something for everyone. The beach is split into sections, including the quieter Corona del Mar and the vibrant Balboa Peninsula. For a little adventure, one can take a short ferry ride to Balboa Island, a charming community with boutique shops, eateries, and picturesque walking paths.
Laguna Beach is not just a beach but a seaside artist community known for its scenic beauty and bohemian spirit. The main beach, located in the heart of the city, offers volleyball courts, basketball courts, and picnic areas. But what sets Laguna Beach apart are its hidden coves and smaller beaches like Crescent Bay, Thousand Steps, and Treasure Island. The tide pools at Shaw's Cove are a must-visit for those interested in marine life. Also, be sure to visit during the annual Pageant of the Masters and Sawdust Festival to truly appreciate the artistic pulse of this town.
Located to the northwest of Orange, Seal Beach is a quiet alternative to some of the busier beaches on this list. Its old-town feel, Main Street filled with quaint shops and eateries, and the second-longest wooden pier in California make it a perfect spot for those looking for a more relaxed experience. The beach itself is wide and pristine, and the nearby Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge is an attraction for nature enthusiasts.
If you're a fan of natural beauty and prefer a more rustic beach experience, Crystal Cove is your destination. Located between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach, this state park offers 3.2 miles of beach and 2,400 acres of backcountry wilderness. It’s a fantastic location for tide pooling, diving, and underwater photography. The Historic District with its preserved 1930s and 1940s beach cottages offers a glimpse into California’s past. And after a day of sun and sea, the Beachcomber Café on the sand is a popular spot to enjoy a meal with a view.
Orange, California, despite being inland, is a gateway to a diverse range of beach experiences. From the surfing mecca of Huntington Beach to the natural beauty of Crystal Cove, the options are varied and abundant. Whether you're into bustling beach towns, serene shores, or scenic coves, Orange County's coastline will not disappoint.

A massive fire that started early Tuesday was burning the historic north blimp hangar in Tustin, an Orange County landmark that dates back to World War II.
The fire was so large and complex that officials used helicopters to drop water on the huge structure, according to the Orange County Fire Authority. The cause of the fire, which broke out at 1 a.m., was not revealed.
Because of the “dynamic nature of the fire, and the imminent danger of collapse,” firefighters plan to allow the flames to collapse the mostly wooden hangar before ground crews move in to try to extinguish the fire, the O.C. Fire Authority said.
The hangar was one of two erected by the military as part of the now defunct Tustin Naval Air Station.
The hangars housed 12 blimps that were used for submarine patrol. Each structure is at least 17 stories high, 1,088 feet long, 297 feet wide and covers almost 300,000 square feet, according to an earlier story in The Times. It would be possible to play a basketball game, a football game and a soccer match in one building simultaneously.

The huge wooden doors, which have six leaves that weigh 26 tons to 39 tons each, fold open on steel rails like an accordion, powered by electric motors at each end. Giant concrete pylons anchor each corner of the hangars, The Times reported.
The hangars were built mostly from Oregon Douglas fir. The 2 million board feet of wood were treated with metallic salts as a fire retardant.
The hangars are two of the world’s largest free-standing wooden structures. Both are listed in the Register of National Historic Places.
The blimps housed there were used as sentries during WWII, armed with machine guns, bombs and charges to fend off submarines, The Times reported.
The base closed in 1991.
Last year, Tustin began a $330,000 cleanup effort of the base — the most significant since its closure — removing large containers, scrap piles, various abandoned equipment and interior broken fencing from the site, repairing fencing along the perimeter and trimming overgrown vegetation, which could make the site prone to fires.
The city also conducted a hazardous materials assessment of the buildings and said it would regularly maintain the area. Officials said they would issue a report and consider moving forward with an abatement plan.
At the time, officials said they were exploring potential revenue opportunities for the site until a permanent plan could be developed. The city’s reuse plan could take up to two years to create, according to a city staff report. Some of the former base has already been developed into the District shopping center, office buildings and residences.
The overall plan for the former base was to turn it into a mixed-use development known as Tustin Legacy.
Former Times staff writer Ben Brazil contributed to this report.

Orange County's newest boutique hotel, The Richland, is an intimate property with a residential feel, catering to travelers seeking tranquility and privacy. The hotel, located in the heart of Orange, California, opened on Feb. 3.
The Richland sits within Orange's one-square-mile historic downtown district, just a five-minute walk from the city's main plaza. The property consists of two early 20th-century structures that were restored with the modern-day traveler in mind. Even the hotel's name is a tribute to the city's roots: The city of Orange was originally called Richland before the name changed in 1873.
The hotel's main entrance is a courtyard with jasmine vine–covered pergolas, an olive tree, a water fountain, and a covered porch. Inside, there's a cozy communal bar and lounge area, with dark wood-paneled walls, leather sofas, a fireplace, and green and yellow accents.
Travelers can toast with handcrafted cocktails and local brews at the hotel’s bar, outfitted with custom-made stools, citrus grove-printed wallpaper (a nod to the city's name), and vintage decor sourced from local antique stores. (Orange, known as "the antique capital of California," is home to more than 40 antique stores.)
The color scheme and coziness carry into each of the hotel's 12 guest rooms. Handwoven rugs and vibrant wallpaper infuse the rooms with personality, while pops of mustard yellow in the lighting fixtures and artwork add character. The bathrooms are equally eclectic, with bold-hued and patterned tiles.
One of the most unique accommodations is the attic suite in the main house, which features sloped ceilings and windows overlooking the street.
Guests seeking more private lodging should book the two-bedroom cottage, which is filled with natural light and California-chic decor. The cottage accommodates five guests and comes with a full kitchen and dining area.
The hotel is a great spot to celebrate a special event — big or small. The indoor bar and lounge area and the outdoor courtyard can host smaller gatherings. For larger events, there's also a ballroom — with exposed wood-beam ceilings and over a dozen chandeliers — that can accommodate parties of up to 150 guests.
Nightly rates at The Richland start at $300. Reservations include a seasonal non-alcoholic welcome drink and complimentary continental breakfast. You can book your stay at therichland.com.

ORANGE COUNTY, CA — As tropical cyclone Hurricane Hilary rages through Baja California, National Weather Service officials issued a Flood Watch for all Orange County cities.
The Flood Watch is in effect from late Saturday night through Monday evening, officials said. The advisory comes as meteorologists predict flooding caused by excessive rainfall across Southwest California.
"Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone locations," a statement from the National Weather Service read. "Residents may experience] flooding in poor drainage and urban areas, with debris flows possible on recent burn scars."
Residents were urged to monitor weather forecasts and be alert for more flood warnings, and those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding occur.
The Flood Watch comes after tropical storm Hilary was officially declared a hurricane, as it rapidly gained strength on its path toward Southern California Thursday.
National Weather Service officials expect the storm to continue to intensify, becoming a Category 3 major hurricane later in the day.
The powerful storm is expected to reach Southern California by Saturday as a tropical storm. However, it has the potential to become the rare tropical cyclone to make landfall in the state. According to the National Weather Service in San Diego, it's been nearly a century since a tropical cyclone hit the region, bringing strong winds, large surf and torrential rain.
Hilary's exact route is still uncertain, but National Weather Service forecasts show the downpours could start Saturday night in San Diego, peaking in intensity Sunday and Monday across Southern California. The threat of showers and thunderstorms is expected to remain throughout next week.
