Dana Point Harbor Waterfall

hqdefault[1]

There was a raging waterfall in the Dana Point Harbor during the recent storms.  Many people drove down to the Harbor to take videos and pictures of this rare sight.  You can either take the short walk to stand right up next to it, or just simply sit in your car and enjoy it. The catch is that you have to go while it’s raining or just afterwards because it quickly downgrades to a trickle and then dries up.  If you miss it this time, take a drive down there the next time a rainstorm comes through. The tropical setting with palm trees and lush landscape surrounding it makes you feel like you’re in Hawaii.

Getting there:  Once you turn onto Dana Point Harbor Drive from Pacific Coast Highway, park at Baby Beach in the harbor and look across the road at the falls.  Pay attention to parking restrictions along the road and don’t get too close to the water when it has a strong flow.  It can be dangerous.

Enjoy the sunshine for now but the next time a storm comes through, head down to the harbor to take a closer look at this man made waterfall right in our very own backyard.
