As an avid beach/surf enthusiast, Corona Del Mar has some of the most beautiful beaches of Southern California. What sets this small surf town apart from the other surrounding cities is it's expansive landscape, and subdued waves. The shore is very shallow and there is minimal wave action, making this spot perfect for families with small children to enjoy a day at the beach with beautiful scenery.
I love the area I live in, but it can be expensive and the drivers can be a handful. That aside, if you can find a good rental deal or don't mind spending more on housing, the area is exceptional. You're close to the beach, lots of great shopping; and there is just a lot to do around here. The weather is always mild, even in the Summer it's rare to reach the 90s. Winter is pleasant, with occasional rain. The people can be a bit stuck up, which I do not care for, but it's possible to find people who are down to earth and kind if you look.

Major freeways and highways are accessible and often no more difficult to navigate than most southern california roadways. Irvine is close by, which offers tons of great Asian stores, and specialty food shops which I adore. Costa Mesa offers cheaper shops and some great Mexican food.

On top of everything else, Corona del Mar has very low crime rates and you should feel comfortable walking alone at night (say down to the ocean or at the local mall).

I'd live here in an instant, and think the drawbacks really don't subtract from the overall experience of living in this city. I see this area growing more in the future, but as it is, it's quaint and not as congested compared to bigger cities.
