Welcome to Dana Point
Dana Point was named after the Dana Headland. The main anchor of the community is the Dana Point Harbor which features a marina, shopping and restaurants. The Dana Point Harbor and downtown area are both set for a major renovation. Dana Point is home to high end resorts called “The Riviera of the Pacific” and eclectic beach homes scattered in the Lantern Village. The Lantern Village derives its name from the multiple Lantern named streets including the main Golden Lantern.
