The harbor is incredibly well decorated and certainly a great destination to walk and enjoy. Lots of food and drink options to choose from. Try not to miss the annual boat parade.

We visited always the side of the beach but this year we walk on the island where we can see the boats arrive to enter in the port. It is very quiet and clean.

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
