Beautiful marina and harbor. Many places to walk, eat, shop, swim. Even a museum and tidepools. Oh, did I mention Tallships? Hotel and even a spot to host a reception or small wedding.

Dana Point Harbor is a great place to spend a sunny SoCal day. Start the day with a paddle around the harbor. Then relax at Baby Beach or explore the seashore at the headlands. Take a break for lunch at one of the many restaurants...More

Went on the sunset wine cruise recently. It was vey nice and just enough time on the water. The wines were good and the people were nice, cruising the harbor at sunset was really pretty and not rough. Smooth sailing

We visited the harbor for the whale watching & dolphin tour we went on. Prior to the tour, we had a little time to walk around and explore some of the shops. There looked to be quite a few neat restaurants to pick from too!

Dana Point Harbor has managed to keep the facilities and the grounds clean and up to date, yet it's still charming. Lot's of health conscious walkers, dog walkers and boaters all out to enjoy the weather, sights and boats. There's a great bagel shop too!

We enjoyed this area. It was a very beautiful day and we had a nice time walking around the shops after a morning of kayaking. Certainly worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Not that I've ever seen but after heavy rains it's there. According to the Orange County Register, it's flowing again. Google it. I can't post html links here.
