Dana Point Real Estate

Investing in Real Estate in Dana Point is a great option for those looking for a small coastal town in South Orange County with a little more affordable prices that its neighbor cities. When people think Dana Point, they think Harbor, and beach. But Dana Point is so much more than that. The small Orange County boat community, located south of Laguna Beach should be mostly known for the miles of bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the wonderful homes ranging from small condos and cottages to luxury estates and beach homes, with many custom homes and the rare ' resort homes'. The bluffs in this town, is what makes the Dana Point Real Estate so interesting, with many homes having gorgeous ocean views, having that 'small town' feel, and enjoying the perfect weather that only a ocean close community can bring. The city of Dana Point has recently invested in a beautification project, making changes to the traffic flow along PCH, adding gardens and sideways to make the city more appealing for customers.

Dana Point Homes :

Located along the magnificent South Orange County coastline, Dana Point is home to over thirty five thousand residents and is known for the beautiful Harbor and the several miles of prominent bluffs and rolling hills located along the Pacific Ocean. 

Doing a drive along the coast from south to north in Dana Point, the first area will be Capo Beach (Capistrano Beach), with the Beach Road homes right on the sand, and the neighborhoods sorrounding the famous Pines Park. Next, we will find the Doheny State Beach, with its campground and many activities and concerts throughout the year. Right next to it is the Dana Point Harbor. Around the Dana Point Harbor, you'll notice the 'Headlands' - which are the bluffs overlooking it. The Harbor provides slips for over two thousands boats and is a focal point for many activities throughout the year, apart from providing restaurants with live entertainment, shopping, water sports and cycling for its residents and visitors. On the north end of the Harbor, there's the beautiful building where the Ocean Institute is located.  Above the Ocean Institute, we will find 'The Headlands', an area that after years of controversy, is currently being developed into a fine residential gated community: The Strand, in which 68 acres of the site will remain open to the public and now features a Nature Center, with walking trails that have amazing views, exhibiting 'lost' plants of Southern California. This area all the way to the border with the city of Laguna Beach is what's known as Monarch Beach - with its many gated neighborhoods, condos, and some of the finest luxury real estate in Orange County.

There's a Dana Point Homes for every all taste from single homes and condos, to townhouses and multi unit residences. Here's some links to specialty Dana Point Real Estate or read below for more Dana Point areas:

A newer attraction is the Nature Interpretive Center, with information on Dana Point native animals and plants, and a nice trail along the bluff.
