I have been spending a week in Dana Harbor for over twenty years now. It never fails to help you relax and enjoy all the beautiful scenery. The ocean waves, sea life, flowers and great restaurants are what calls me back year after year.

This is the nicest spot I've found in SoCal. I have to travel to the area for work on a regular basis and always stay in Dana Point, having tried various other towns locally. A highlight is always walking or running around the harbor. There...More

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
