The Weather in Dana Point
Tour California's wild Pacific coast from a Dana Point vacation home
Dana Point offers guests unique access to harbors and beaches, fresh Pacific seafood, and small town cultural charms. Whether you opt for a family style vacation rental or a cute seaside condo, you will have the perfect base for exploring.
The California coast is famous for fresh seafood, and no visit would be complete without sampling the area's offerings. For well-prepared food in a casual setting, stop by Jon's Fish Market. Menu favorites include chowder, fish and chips, and clam strips.
The Wind & Sea Restaurant is a perfect choice for a more refined seafood meal. Their extensive raw bar includes a variety of clams and oysters, and several types of poke – an Asian inspired dish of marinated raw tuna and garnishes.
For an interactive experience focused on the Pacific ocean's habitat and wildlife, visit the Ocean Institute. Guided tours are offered hourly, and daily volunteer led programs are available. The seaside center also features fun touch tanks.
The Pilgrim, a historic replica of an 1800s ship is also presented by the Ocean Institute. Tours include plenty of Dana Point local history and stories about the city's namesake, Richard Henry Dana. Below deck, guests can explore the brig, store, and quarters.
A stroll through the Dana Point Harbor makes for a perfect afternoon outside. A variety of local wildlife can be spotted above and below water, including many bird species. The adjacent park features picnic facilities, restrooms, and parking.
At the end of the harbor, Baby Beach is a convenient place to wiggle your toes in the sand. The water is calm and safe for swimming, and water sports equipment is available for rent. Shaded picnic areas, parking, and showers make this a popular family destination.
