Dana Point is a beach town in Orange County, California offering travelers luxury hotels, fine dining, golf and surfing in a southern California climate. Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel sits atop the bluff overlooking Monarch Beach.
Watching hundreds of surfers and California brown pelicans cruise the waves below the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel is timeless enjoyment. I’ll post more about Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel and St. Regis Monarch Beach this next week.
I wondered if there were more surfers or pelicans on the water. Amazingly I am pretty sure the pelicans outnumbered the hundred or more surfers by a fair margin. And while I saw some good wave rides by surfers, the pelicans typically glide just a few feet over the water with unmatchable grace.
The beaches of Orange County are a beautiful place to see – especially when viewing from the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel.
