The mostly channelized creek has no named surface tributaries.The creek begins in the central portion of the city of Laguna Niguel and flows west and south through a narrow canyon referred to as the Salt Creek Corridor, which is mostly inside a long and narrow regional park.It then flows into the Monarch Beach Golf Course in the city of Dana Point and enters a subsurface storm channel ("Arroyo Salada Storm Channel") which carries it to its discharge point at Salt Creek County Beach.

Salt Creek Beach , Dana Point Reviews - Write a Review

  • Home Sweet Home...My Photography playground for at least 15 years. The beach is popular with surfers, great views. In order to get to the beach you need to go down a very steep hill. You can pay for parking via credit card, it is limited to 3 hours, 1 dollar per hour. Park is a home for summer concerts. When there is a low tide you can go for a walk along the beach and connect to Strands Beach. There is a cafe next to the ocean where you can buy some snacks and drinks,

  • We try to walk at Salt Creek at least 2 times a month with our "granddog". Last night, as we often, do we stayed to picnic on the lawn and watch the sunset. Never disappoints. Great spot to end the day at this well maintained County park and beach.

  • Beautiful beach with a family friendly atmosphere. Green area with a lovely park. Concession stand with food and they rent beach chairs and umbrellas for a reasonable price. Get there before noon to avoid parking issues! Beach area isn't extremely crowded, so much nicer than those closer to LA or San Diego. Can't wait to go back!!

  • REALLY BEAUTIFUL BEACH with PLENTY OF (pay) PARKING. Long trek to the sand or just a short trek to a grassy hill, perfect for picnicking or just relaxing and taking in the view. Can't go wrong here.

  • Excellent spot to spend the day! Beautiful beach; Lovely green space; Accessible and convenient parking area. My favorite beach to visit after a long drive from AZ.
