Located in southern Orange County, Dana Point is home to an estimated 35,110 residents and is characterized by nearly seven miles of prominent coastal bluffs and rolling hills along the Pacific Ocean. Most noteworthy of these bluffs is a unique promontory known as the “Headlands” which overlooks Dana Point Harbor, one of the most significant man-made alterations of the Orange County coastline. Dana Point is approximately halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, and is bordered by Laguna Niguel and Laguna Beach to the north, San Juan Capistrano to the east, and San Clemente to the south. Dana Point Harbor provides slips and mooring for over 2,500 boats along with over 50 specialty shops and restaurants. The Harbor attracts thousands of visitors annually for shopping, sportfishing, walking, bicycling, parasailing and a host of recreational activities. The Dana Point Harbor is also considered the gateway to Doheny State Park, a popular 62-acre State Park offering camping, picnicking, swimming, surfing, bicycling, tide pool exploration and more.
