About Dana Point

It's been a long time since Dana Point was little more than a hidden beach for intrepid surfers in search of the next big wave. Still, Dana Point retains the feeling of a hidden gem on the Orange County coast. The masses somewhat overlook dana Point; it attracts a good deal fewer tourists than nearby cities like Laguna Beach and retains a laid-back charm with plenty of high-end glitz and glamor thrown in.

Dana Point is home to some magnificent beachfront hotels, such as the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel and the Monarch Beach Resort. These fantastic destinations attract visitors searching for luxury and serenity and provide some of the city's most upscale dining options, with epic views to match the innovative cuisine.

Dana Point Harbor is the city's heartbeat and is always a hive of activity. Home to over 50 specialty shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants, the harbor also provides slips and mooring for over 2,500 boats. Locals come here to enjoy a host of activities, including fishing, cycling, and parasailing. Whale watching tours also set out from the harbor, as well as the Catalina Island ferry.

Southern California's infamous climate means that spending time outdoors is possible throughout the year. Locals spend a lot of time at the beach, and there are plenty of options from which to choose.

Salt Creek Beach is popular with surfers, thanks to its offshore reef. Closer to shore, the water is clear and safe, making this an ideal spot for swimming and relaxing. Dana Strands Beach is another popular stretch of sand that never feels crowded, while Doheny State Beach in the center of town is ideal for picnics, beach volleyball, and surfing.

Hiking is a popular activity in these parts, and Dana Point has some short and rewarding trails. Bluff Top Trail winds its way through town, above the shore, and offers stunning views of the harbor. Elsewhere, Harbor Point Conservation Park is a popular place to watch the Pacific Ocean sunset.

Dana Point is home to events and festivals throughout the year. The bi-monthly Dana Point Farmers Market is a great place to experience this tight-knit community in action. Neighbors come together to chat, swap news, and browse locally produced meat, produce, and artisanal products. Summer brings a popular free concert series, and in September, the Tall Ships Festival unites the community in a celebration of its maritime history.
