California still encourages visitors and residents to get vaccinated and, in line with CDC regulations, wear face coverings in congested environments. Here are some additional details of the reopening:

  • All state and national parks and beaches are open, with only limited closures at some sites.
  • Visitors are encouraged to be vaccinated before coming to California, but it is not a requirement to travel.
  • Operators of large outdoor events of more than 10,000 people, including professional sporting events and some theme parks, are encouraged to screen attendees for vaccinations or negative COVID-19 tests, but screening is not mandatory.
  • Operators of large indoor events of more than 5,000 people are required to screen attendees for vaccinations or negative COVID-19 tests. Attendees should check guidelines with event operators when buying tickets or making reservations.


For outdoor fun, you’ve come to the right place! Enjoy our gorgeous beaches, parks and trails.

Respect California

Visit Dana Point joins Visit California in its call for safe and responsible travel throughout the state this summer and beyond. We support the Responsible Travel Code launched earlier this month, which asks visitors to travel with RESPECT by committing to seven best practices when exploring the Golden State:

  • Roam Responsibly
  • Educate Myself
  • Safety First
  • Preserve California
  • Embrace Community
  • Celebrate Culture
  • Teach Others

The code marries the imperative to travel safely amid the coronavirus pandemic with California’s ongoing effort to encourage visitors, tourism industry partners and Californians to create a sustainable and respectful environment for all. As the code’s preamble pinpoints, “Respect is the key to keeping each other safe and all of California’s precious and fragile beauty protected, today and tomorrow.”
