Dana Point is a city located in southern Orange County, California. Dana described the locale, including neighboring San Juan Capistrano, as “the only romantic spot on the coast”.
Dana considered the high bluffs and sheltered coves of this area of Southern California to be the most beautiful spot on the California coast. Pioneering surfers agreed, as they surfed the many beach breaks along the coast. Dana Point had a notable surfing history, and was home to many of the first companies that produced products for surfing. Hobie Alter opened one of the first retail surf shops in Dana Point in 1954.
The city is served by Capistrano Unified School District. It includes Dana Hills High School, one of the oldest high schools in the area which opened in 1972.
