Dana Point is situated on the beautiful Southern California coast, halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles. It prides itself with nearly seven miles of coastal bluffs and rolling hills along the Pacific Ocean with its charming beaches and wild surfs. Most noteworthy of these bluffs is a unique promontory known as the "Headlands", which overlooks Dana Point Harbor, one of the most significant manmade alterations of the Orange County coastline. Dana Point encompasses 6.5 square miles and is home to 34,037 people and numerous businesses, all working together as one community. You can see this collaboration in action during some of the City's annual festivals and events such as the Turkey Trot in November, Festival of Whales in March, Concours D'Elegance in June, and its 4th of July fireworks show. The City is home to the Dana Point Harbor, the newly opened Ocean Institute presenting a wide array of marine life, to several beautiful lodging facilities and restaurants to accommodate your special needs.
