Welcome to the City of Dana Point!  Whether you are here for the day, the weekend, or thinking of making Dana Point your new home, we are here to serve your needs during your stay.

The official city motto is “Harboring the Good Life,” and we like to reflect that in our life here in Dana Point. Dana Point is home to 35,110 residents and is characterized by nearly seven miles of prominent coastal bluffs and rolling hills along the Pacific Ocean.

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, sport fishing, walking, bicycling, parasailing and a host of recreational activities. The Dana Point Harbor is also considered the gateway to Doheny State Park, one of California’s most popular beach facilities. In addition to Doheny State Park, Dana Point boasts several other world class beaches perfect for a day of surfing, swimming, or building sandcastles.

Dana Point provides over 1,900 hotel rooms available to fit in every budget. From camping at scenic beaches, to quaint Victorian bed & breakfasts, to the luxury of 5 Star Resorts, few cities areas offer more selections for the traveler.  Dana Point has also been featured by Trip Advisor, as One of the Most Affordable Fall Destinations Out West.  Our Visitors Center staff can provide extensive knowledge and recommendations for your visit.
