Why Visit Dana Point?

Dana Point, Southern California’s original surf town, brings together the best of luxury amenities and laid-back surf culture to create one idyllic destination. In Dana Point, you can get down to business and surf at Salt Creek. You can drink in the beach vibes and the fine wines. It’s a place with sophistication and taste, and yet it’s casual. Flip-flops-for-every-occasion casual. Dana Point isn’t just a place, it’s a way of life.

We embrace the seemingly contradictory elements that set us apart from our Orange County neighbors. We know that’s what makes us the coolest destination in Southern California.

Dana Point is the Dolphin and Whale Watching Capital of the World™ and tour boats leave daily from the 2,500 boat and yacht slip marina. Located halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles, the destination offers everything from sunset wine cruises and luxury spas to surfing and ocean view golfing. Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) and kayaking rentals, as well as “pirate ship” adventures, beach and aerial yoga classes, and deep sea fishing offer endless options for making memories.

While you’re here, enjoy hotel rooms that overlook the Southern California coastline within a short drive of LAX, SAN and John Wayne Airport. Whether you’re looking to work on your golf swing, catch some rad waves, sip cocktails at sunset, or experience California cuisine at its finest, Dana Point’s hotels and resorts allow visitors to work, play and stay steps from the Pacific Ocean.

Dana Point isn’t for people who follow the herd. It’s for those who would rather go and do rather see and be seen. We go our own way, blaze our own trails. Whether you come to town for a romantic honeymoon, family getaway or a conference, Dana Point welcomes you to come as you are and leave as a local.
