There are moments for quiet serenity as the sun rises; opportunities to join the crowd and surf to your heart’s content; and the absolute bliss of spending every waking moment by the sea on a sunny harbor. Dotted with palm trees, this city practically defines the traditional beach town. A Dana Point vacation rental puts you right in the heart of the action, and is likely to offer exceptional views of this immaculate area.

    At this point, you'll never be bored

    People of all ages flock to Dana Point. Golfers meet their match at the 18-hole course along the sea, while foodies constantly discover new finds at exciting restaurants. Dana Point is also whale country—come here for a glimpse of these beauties anytime! Surf and paddle boarding cultures are strong here, too. The yoga scene in Dana Point is especially impressive; why not join the enthusiasts as they gather at Lantern Bay Park to assume the position at sunup? A trip down the main street to peruse the local boutiques is also a must—what better way to show your appreciation for local talents?

    Nature rules in this colorful SoCal city

    As you step outside of your Dana Point vacation rental, you’ll encounter one of many public art installations located throughout the city. Visitors can also check the Dana Point Nature Interpretive Center to enjoy nature, whale, and history tours. The neighboring Public Trail System offers over 3 miles of free space to gaze at the ocean from different vantage points. Family-friendly Dana Point Harbor is at the center of the action, and it’s a must for avid shoppers and foodies. The Ocean Institute, meanwhile, offers maritime exhibitions and even themed boat trips!

    It's the time of the season to enjoy the outdoors

    Hyper-sunny Dana Point knows exactly where it stands from a weather standpoint: it’s sunny approximately 275 days a year, and it’s comfortably warm during spring and summer. Swap your tanks and tees for lightweight long sleeves in the winter, when temps drop to a lovely 65 degrees. That said, if you plan to stroll the harbor you will absolutely need a jacket to stave off high winds. A little rain isn’t out of the question, but it’s typically a short-lived sprinkle.

    Under sunny skies, marine and plant life reign

    The shining star of Orange County, Dana Point is known primarily for its headlands. Of that area, almost 70 acres include a nature center and walking trail for public visitation. One of that area’s most noteworthy details is the abundance of rare plant life along the trails. On a perfect day, you’ll be able to step outside your Dana Point vacation rental and possibly spot La Jolla and Catalina Island in the distance. If you’re beach bound, watch for kelp beds, Great White sharks, and countless breeds of fish.
