Dana Point

lodginglodging reservations in Dana Point

The once famed surf spot, "Killer Dana" marks only a small surf shop now. The development of the harbor ruined the awesome surfing break & now there are only tales. Developers at work for your leisure enjoyment & tourists dollar. Or who knows, maybe the cliffs & beaches were eroding too fast? See more history of this coastal region, with links below.
