Foursquare Tips

  • Much prettier & friendlier than Newport Beach Harbor/Marina
  • So nice watching the boats, people and dogs walking.
  • The colored lanterns that once guided sailors on a safe approach into Dana Point Harbor now serve as namesakes to the streets in the area - Golden, Violet, Ruby and Silver
  • Walk the boardwalk to where the boats set sail for Catalina, there you'll find tons of pelicans along with a few seals here n' there.
  • Such an amazing marina. So many boats. Great restaurants an amazing views.
  • Best coffee in Dana Point harbor
