“No waves, no surf desired?”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Baby beach is perfect for . . . . babies. Roped off area and very shallow sloping bottom for babies and small children. And people who want to launch SUPs, kayaks, etc and have no surf to worry about. Great place to try SUP (rental place right off the beach). Also nice to SUP through the harbor and "boat watch".

“Lovely gentle beach”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Nice gently sloping beach in middle of Dana Point Harbor. Perfect for families with young children (as name suggests). There is always families at picnic tables next to beach celebrating events which makes for a nice vibe (but to secure such a table requires a very early morning trip !)

“Great family beach in Dana Point”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Baby Beach is just that, a beach for babies (and families). A huge breakwater simultaneously killed "Killer Dana" and created Baby Beach. There are no waves, just boat wakes and wind waves, but even those are tiny and not dangerous for any of the little ones that wander into the water.

As with ANY beach any where, never go in the water after a rainstorm and do check the Heal the Bay website for water quality the day you plan to go, but along with the beaches inside Newport Harbor like Coast Guard Beach, this is one of the safest, best spots to take your littlest ones.
