Dana Point - Strands Beach

Dana Point, California

Strands Beach is a beautiful little beach in Dana Point. Free parking is found alongside the end of Selva Road, right before the cul-de-sac. Selva Road can be reached right off of Pacific Coast Highway. The path leading to the access point to the beach is this amazing mosaic creation of sea creatures. The beach access point path is a long downward path of steps so use caution when coming down. Reminders: There is a 3-day rain advisory after each rain storm, use caution as bacteria levels can increase during this period. The County Environmental Health staff advises swimmers that levels of bacteria can rise significantly in ocean and bay waters adjacent to storm drains, creeks and rivers. Swimmers should avoid coastal waters impacted by discharging storm drains creeks and rivers, and beach users should avoid contact with any runoff on the beach during dry or wet weather conditions. As an extra precaution remain 500 ft away on either side from any outfalls.
