Parents can enjoy a walk around the many attractions at the docks (fishing pier, The Pilgrim ship museum, Ocean Institute), and leave the kids at this very calm beach located behind two separate breakwaters.
This beach is great for preschoolers, toddlers as there are no waves and the sand is silky smooth. There is also a picnic area with lawn and shower facilities. And free parking. We brought our 3 year old mid-week and had a fine time.
Recommend this spot for toddlers and those uninterested in beach combing. Would definitely bring my grandson here and not worry about the surf.
We held our family reunion at Baby Beach and it was a great spot. The undertow on neighbouring beaches was strong, but because Baby Beach is within the marina, it's much safer for the kids. It doesn't get much better than Dana Point
Love this place for Stand Up Paddleboarding. It will be packed on weekends & holidays so avoid that if you can.
