Dana Point travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about Dana Point

Which neighbourhoods in Dana Point are close to public transport?

Orange County Transit Authority (OCTA) runs a bus service along much of the Pacific Coast Highway (bus 1), which snakes its way through Dana Point. However, a recommended way to see Dana Point is on foot, and the local credo is that it should be done in flip flops. Central Dana Point is small enough to be enjoyed on foot or by bike. Locals stipulate using the many footpaths that run parallel to the Pacific Ocean for unparalleled views of the sea. Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa is a great option for oceanside delights. To stay further afield, you might want to consider renting a car, available through momondo.
