Are there soccer goals on the beach, and how clear is the sand from twigs and rocks?

Many people just use towels as goal posts with no side or upper posts.  The beach is very clean.  We do not wear shoes or socks when playing any games.

There are not soccer goals on the beach (unless you are in a tournament that set them up). The sand in OC is very fine and beach is very clear of all kinds of debris. The only time I have seen much debris on the beach is after a big storm (for just a day or two in season and less than a week or so off season) and along the edge of the water where the tides sometimes wash shells and small stones in and out. You will have no issue with debris playing soccer (or anything else) on the beach.

The beach is always clear, it gets cleaned each night but there are no soccer goals. You can reserve the sports fields for soccer. Here is a link with more info:

There is the occasional beach soccer tournament, but there are no permanent goals on the beach. You could certainly bring your own small one though. And you will be hard-pressed to find any twigs or rocks in the sand. Have fun!

I would bring a few red cones for a game of soccer. Keep in mind to set up in the back part of the beach for safety reason and not to interfere with other beach goers.
