Monarch Beach condo description

Monarch Beach is a small, wealthy gated community in Orange County, California located within Dana Point. Its distinction is the St. Regis and the Ritz Carlton-Laguna Niguel (actually located within Dana Point) which are beachside resorts located within the town of Monarch Beach. Monarch Beach is close to the city-boundary between Dana Point and Laguna Niguel, which are both included in Orange County's 'Beach Cities' area. It consists of some residences, but is also a tourist attraction for rich and, occasionally, famous travelers. The name 'Monarch Beach' is often referenced as the name of the city, in place of Dana Point, to make the area sound more appealing to such travelers. This intentional misnomer is the source of many complaints among most other Dana Point locals.

Monarch Beach, Dana Point,Monarch Beach is named after its most prominent geological feature 'Monarch Bay' aptly named as its rolling hills of Sagebrush and Manzanita were once a breeding ground for the Monarch Butterfly.

Like the rest of Dana Point, Monarch Beach gated community residents enjoy close proximity to the beach, a relatively low-crime rate, top-rated competitive public schools, and a relaxed, comfortable and athletic atmosphere that proliferates within the entire Dana Point community.

The Links — an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. — is considered to be one of the best golf courses in Southern California. In addition, the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Golf Course offers visitors some of the best amenities in the area.

Laguna Beach and Monarch Beach have a warm Mediterranean climate with abundant sunshine all year. Daytime temperature averages range from 67°F in January to 79°F in July. Mean annual precipitation is relatively low - 13.56 inches. Water temperatures are some of the warmest on the southern California coast and range from about 60°F in February to 72°F in August; however in early to mid September water temperatures often range from 73°F-75°F
