    Just above you at the Strands is our new housing development, "STRANDS" luxury homes, and the public walkway goes right through the development. Thank you California Coastal Commission and City of Dana Point. Or take the Funicular

    A most spectacular coastline with crashing surf. Watch dolphins play. Have a cool drink on the veranda of the World Renowned Ritz Carlton-Laguna Niguel

    Strands Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in OC! It seems like a private beach and only locals seem to go there. It's a great surf spot as the waves are pretty big. The beach is super clean and so picturesque. If you're lazy, you can take the elevator car down and back to the beach, or get a great workout in and take the stairs. Located right next to Salt Creek Beach, where the Ritz-Carlton is situated. Absolutely gorgeous!

    Beautiful beach!
    Don't forget to try out the FREE funicular down to the beach!
    A little bumpy though, but hey, it's FREE!
    Walk down to the beach and take the funicular on the way up if you get too tired or lazy to hike back up the stairs!

    Wonderful beach that doesn't get too crowded. It's a great place to get some sun or just walk along the water and be amazed by the homes along the cliff. There are also plenty if steps and walkways for jogging. There is an elevator if you don't feel like walking up and down the stairs. It's a great spot for surfing as well. I spotted dolphins while I was there too!
