“A bad day surfing is better than a good day working” could be the motto of Southern California. It’s certainly true in Orange County, where the waves are gnarly and the beaches are spotless. Add in five-star dining and a harbour that belongs on a postcard (or your Facebook page), and you’ve found your next escape: Dana Point.
Those looking to hang 10 have tons of options (this is California, after all), but Dana Point hotels near Salt Creek Beach Park are definitely a good start. Just follow the paths—or the locals!—to find where the best left swells of the day are breaking.
When you’ve worked up an appetite, grab a picnic table and throw some hot dogs on the barbie (so American). If you’d rather “relish” your meal with no work required, you’re in luck. Ocean view dining abounds around Dana Point Harbor, south of the park. If you don’t feel like a nap at your Dana Point hotel after all that delicious food, head north to tour the Pilgrim, a replica 19th-century sailing brig, or shop for souvenirs at Dana Point Pier.
John Wayne Airport (SNA) is just 35 km north, so if you’re itching to get out on the waves, that’s your best bet. If you want to stop and smell the roses, fly into Los Angeles International (LAX). Explore the legends of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard from our Los Angeles hotels, then choose one of Wotif’s car hire options and cruise 100 km down Pacific Coast Highway on the way to your Dana Point accommodation. You’ll really be California dreamin’.
Don’t get worked by all those other “deals”. Wotif’s got the best Dana Point holidays this side of the Pacific (well, both sides actually). Planning your next getaway is so easy, you’ll be saying “Surf’s up!” before you know it.
Hotels in Dana Point start at AU$191 per night. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
