TRAVEL SAFE. TRAVEL CONFIDENTLY.
After dreaming of ocean breezes and stellar sunsets, it’s finally time to plan your Dana Point vacation. As of Monday, January 25th, your favorite Southern California beach destination is open again for leisure travel. With seven miles of coastal beachfront, open air, cliffside eateries, renowned dolphin and whale watching, world-class boating, and endless opportunities to catch a wave, we can’t wait to welcome you for that getaway you’ve been waiting for. Rest easy knowing that Dana Point’s hotels and local businesses have worked diligently to prepare for this moment by implementing operational and physical changes with your health and safety in mind.
Kindly note that, although leisure travel is now permitted, there are still important health orders and business modifications in place. Orange County is currently in the “purple tier” of the state’s four-tiered approach to reopening safely and returning to “business as usual”. Below you will find information and guidelines to consider as you plan your safe visit to Dana Point.
Mask Up: Per the California Department of Public Health and Orange County, individuals over the age of three, are required to wear face masks.
Keep Your Distance: Practicing physical distancing is required. Please remain six feet away from those not in your traveling party at all times.
Avoid Gatherings: Any form of gatherings or mixing with individuals outside of your household is not permitted. A “gathering” or “mixing” is considered an event or convening that brings together people in a single room or single space at the same time, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, cafeteria, or any other indoor or outdoor space.
Additional Healthy Practices:
*Please check with individual businesses and locations to confirm business hours, available services, and individual guidelines. Many indoor operations are offering limited capacity.
For outdoor fun, you’ve come to the right place! Enjoy our gorgeous beaches, parks and trails. We just ask that you follow the guidelines and orders as we want to keep Dana Point a safe destination for you, our visitors.

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:
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.”
