Well, I don't think i will be able to write a review on personal accomodation experience at the Ritz Carlton in Dana but can mention the lovely walking experience that can be had right off the property. Caution: there is a seriously steep road leading from the hotel to the beach (as first pictured)

In late winter at the harbor, whales greet Dana in their annual migration, which originates in Alaska and ends in Mexico. Special whale watching excursions run during the 2 weekend event, ranging from about $30-$250 (general and private boats). pre-booked reservations are recommended.
See website for calendar of events and whale pics!

For the Orange county visitor seeking a more local, less congested perspective, low-wave Doheny is a great option to see. Doheny is mentioned in the popular Beach boys tunes, "Surfin' safari" and "Surfin' U.S.A.". On a bad note, this beach is one of the most polluted in the greater Los Angeles area. Never haveIi seen the water very blue, more murky browish-blue. So, swimming is not by any means ideal but people still brave it. Mostly, watersport enthusiasts like surfers, paddleboarders and kayakers enjoy Doheny. Though not the top surfing spot in O.C. (try Huntington Beach), one can view the wave hitters on the north end of the beach.
Doheny is by Del Obispo/Dana Harbor Drive, approx. a mile north of Interstate and about three miles from San Juan Capistrano Mission.

Doheny State Beach is an beautiful and exciting beach especially for the active beach goers. The main Dana Pont beach is a beloved spot for campers and nature conservation lovers. Many pitch their tents during special park events like the Haunted Campground, just in time of Halloween but revellers can enjoy the area all-year round.
If nature is your thing, Doheny will entice with its own tidepool and 5 part aquarium with varying specimen- all located within the visitor center which is temporarily closed (as of 2011) but will have a grand reopening sometime in the next few years .

Dana Point has a charming harbor area, featuring two marinas and a wharf. It's perfect to explore with a nice stroll during the day or evening. The harbor is the water adventure spot where visitors can embark on a sail, ferry to Catalina or sportfish. On land, try one of a dozen or so choices for dining or have a snack.
The most breathtaking aspect of Dana harbor may not be the water but the magnificent botanical landscaping, perhaps the most exquisite of the entire southern California harbors.

This is the place that you can really relax, just listen to the wave and have cool breeze on your face. Although I dont have much time since I was here for a conference. But still I really enjoyed and relaxed, of course after the meeting. Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel hotel is located on a very magnificant landscape. In the afternoon, I saw dolphins swimming by very near the beach.
