  • Second time to the this beach. It’s a nice relaxing beach. Not over crowded. Waves were middle of the road on our visit. Not too high not small.

  • Beach is nice, but need to pay for parking. There is free parking on PCH, but then that's a longer walk. There are lots of other nearby beaches with free parking in Dana Point.

  • Love this beach. Plenty of parking ($1/hr) but they do fill up fast on weekends. Beach is a 5 min walk and on the way is a park area which is great to bring a blanket for a picnic and watch sunsets. The beach is wide and sand is fine. Great place to walk or watch surfers catch some waves.
  • Gorgeous beach in Dana Point with a park like setting with expansive grass on hill going down to the wide sandy beach with rolling waves. The views are beautiful and bathroom facilities were clean. The snack shack is currently closed for remodeling. Half court basketball, paved walking/running trails and covered pavilion with grills. $1 hour parking fee.
