We had a good time at the harbor. We walked around while waiting for our whale watching tour. We also ate at the fist market. It was very enjoyable.

This is a harbor that looks good from virtually every angle. It's the high cliffs plummeting dramatically into the calm blue waters. Reliable restaurants like El Torito and The Brig. Boutique coffee, clothing, and ice cream shops. The tall ships, romantic visitors from a distant...More

Stayed at the Ritz and enjoyed the surroundings. Spent days in Laguna where food, fashion and art are “de rigeur”. It is a relaxing place ....friendly people..... just a slower pace of life. My dream is to go,there every year from an visit.

What is not to like about the Dana Point Harbor. Plenty of place to have a little stroll, nice restaurants and beautiful boats to look at. Great spot to spend a little off time.

We spent an afternoon hanging out at the harbor. There are many little shops and restaurants to visit. It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Nice and walkable. Good selection of places to shop and eat. Very attractive. What's not to like? This is certainly a glimpse at how the other half lives (and enjoys life).

gorgeous harbor with convenience and a nice easy in and out system of organization. Home to sea lions and big rock walls to protect the harbor.

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.

No, there are no waterfalls at Dana Point. There are some scenic beaches to explore, lots of picnic spots, good restaurants, huge marina with interesting boats, and the Ocean Institute is quite intriguing! Lots to see and... More
