Things to Do in Dana Point

Enjoy Our Recreational Activities

First wave on the beach where surfing was born, or the joy on your children’s faces the first time they see our newly remodeled Splash Zone, the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa offers a myriad of things to do in Dana Point. Explore the gateway to exactly the Southern California you’ve come to experience.

Bicycle Rentals

Set off for a two-wheeled adventure on a beautiful Trek® 7100 Hybrid Bicycle. Our Concierge can recommend great routes through beautiful Dana Point Harbor and along the sands of our nearby beaches.

Kids Splash Zone

Kids will love the Splash Zone’s fountains, surfboards and water cannon, heated outdoor Del Mar Pool, children’s pool and room to romp on the expansive Del Mar Lawn (how about a game of Capture the Flag?). Of course, parents are more than welcome to relax by the pool and enjoy the gorgeous Pacific Ocean views.


Our two heated outdoor pools with whirlpools offer breathtaking Pacific Ocean backdrops.

24-Hour Fitness Club

The 2,500-square-foot Fitness Club features Life Fitness strength training equipment along with treadmills, Octane ellipticals, upright bikes, recumbent bikes and stair-stepper machines, all equipped with flat-screen TVs.  


No matter how you like to challenge yourself, you’ll find it at or around the resort.
