Located at the very south border of Dana Point, right before San Clemente is the charming community of Capistrano Beach. Development of Capistrano Beach began as early as the 1920’s. Referred to as “Capo Beach” by its residents, the area has grown into an exclusive yet very friendly and laidback beach town. Within Capo Beach, buyers will find charming beach cottages, exquisite custom homes and sprawling estates that sit on the bluff front. The homes located on the top of these bluffs (which run parallel to Pacific Coast Highway, particularly along Camino Capistrano) provide spectacular views of Dana Point Harbor, Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean.
There are a number of fine communities to choose from including Azul Circle, California Homes, Capistrano Bluffs, Capistrano Heights, Harbor Walk, Palisades, Sand Castle Homes, Sea Bluff Villas, Sea Breeze, and Seascape. Dana Bluffs and Mill Pond offer condo townhomes, while the privately gated Beach Road residences are stunning beachfront homes located right on the sand.
The beach area of Capistrano Beach includes the stretch of sand that starts from the Doheny State Beach area and goes to nearby San Clemente. Accessible to everyone, the beach has day parking, basketball courts, restrooms, and plenty of fire pits. Capistrano Beach also has a number of parks, which include Capistrano Beach Park, Mira Costa Park, Louise Leydon Park, Palisades Gazebo Park, and Pines Park, which is notable for its magnificent ocean views from the top of the bluffs.
