An impromptu visit to this beautiful beach park was the perfect excuse to get out of the house on a lazy Sunday afternoon. We easily parked in the empty big lot; paid at a nearby automated station ($1 /hour; cash/credit card accepted); and found the path to the beach (located adjacent to the tidy restroom hut). Our leisurely stroll led us past a clean, open grass area with picnic tables and gorgeous homes with panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, to the quiet, practically deserted beach. A lone sailboat in the distant glistening blue water provided a picture-perfect backdrop to this soul-soothing serene environment. So glad we came!

There is a fee for parking, but the lot is large with easy access to the park and beach. It is a wonderful place to see the sunset.

Great beach in Dana Point - large free parking lot, clean bathrooms (w/showers), easy access ramp (even though a little steep incline), life guards, large park above the beach with a big grass area. Get there before noon and you will have the pick of beach, but pay attention to signs, surfers and swimmers each have there own areas.

We always have a wonderful time when we come down to Salt Creek Beach. The beach park area has lots of grass and is dog friendly. It a beautiful place to eat & watch the sunset. Dog owners please pick up after your pets. Highly recommend. Steve Concialdi

We were driving around Dana Point and happened upon this beach. Great for boogie boarding, very clean and not too crowded. There’s a bit of a walk down to the beach but so picturesque!
