Fire Pits & Fire Rings at Corona del Mar State Beach, California

Corona del Mar--Are you ready for some beach excitement with a cozy, toasty fire in a fire pit at Corona del Mar State Beach? Visitors love cooking hot dogs and marshmallows in the fire rings supplied free on a first come first serve basis. While you have to bring your own wood and food, of course, the beach views and sunsets are free of charge of every day of the year. Note: Call about the fire rings before going. There have been attempts to remove them and their future is not always certain.


Corona del Mar State Beach offers fantastic, new restroom facilities, a shaded lawn with picnic tables and BBQ grills, and the sand beach pits lined up in several rows with ample space between them so your family and friends (or you, alone) can have the time of your life at the beach.


On a recent, sunny 72-degree day, a man sat beside his fire and enjoyed the views of the sea. Day or night, you can enjoy the firerings, but nighttime lights up with the orange glow of fires and delicious smell of fires burning.

To bring wood and stake out the firepits, its easiest to drive down the hill and pay the parking fee so you can haul your wood to the nearby rings. But there is free parking on the hills above. From there you must carry items down a set of steps and walk a small distance.
