Epic Beach from Above – Dana Point, CA, US
Dana Point is a city located in southern Orange County, California, United States.
The city was named after the headland of Dana Point, which was in turn named after Richard Henry Dana, Jr., author of Two Years Before the Mast, which included a description of the area.
Dana described the locale, including neighboring San Juan Capistrano, as “the only romantic spot on the coast”.
Although Dana described the anchorage as poor, it is now a developed harbor and contains a replica of his ship, the Pilgrim. The Pilgrim was used as a classroom by the Ocean Institute, which is located at the harbor until it sank in 2020.
This area is designated California Historical Landmark.
