The unique seaside city of Dana Point is in Orange County, Southern California, halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Dana Point is a favorite central point, bordered by the cities of Laguna Niguel, Laguna Beach, San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente.
Dana Point offers plenty of pristine oceanscapes, romantic overlooks and beach strolls – it’s a comfortable, surfer town that invites one and all. One of the most famous surf breaks in the world, Killer Dana, attracted thousands of ocean-loving fans in the 1950s and 1960s. It proved so inspiring, in fact, that Hobie Alter created the world’s first retail surf shop. It stands today, still abuzz with a relaxed and friendly surfer vibe.
Today’s Dana Point Harbor is a welcoming community, serving as hub to more than 2,500 boats and yachts. Three yacht clubs, stand-up paddle (SUP) and kayaking companies, as well as “pirate ship” adventures, whale watching, deep sea fishing and sunset wine cruises offer endless options.
Known for its four breathtaking coastal resorts, The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, Monarch Beach Resort, Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa and DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Doheny Beach, Dana Point offers accommodations for every lifestyle. Nearby airport access offers easy transport for visitors and large groups. Planning a meeting?
