"A Blink of An Eye and You've Missed Us!" Capistrano Beach by karina888

I live in Capistrano Beach. It's an unincorporated city of Dana Point, California. It's quaint, VERY quiet and rests on a cliff along the Pacific Ocean just south of Laguna Beach and just a hair north of San Clemente.
Many folks drive right through our town on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) and never realize they just drove through our town, ha ha...that's okay...
The Surfliner Train and Metrolink share the same line along the coast which can be heard from from my bedroom, but it doesn't seem to bother anyone. It adds a certain character to the twon. The operator sounds the train "horn" (and it's LOUD) as it blows by. Thanks goodness the last train rides by around 11:30 p.m.!
FYI: Capo beach is a Tsunami Hazard Zone......... These signs are posted on the only sidewalk down to the beach from my neighbourhood. Luckily we are high on a cliff!!
I didn't notice these signs for a long time...........
The Gazebo Park is located at the top of the Palisades Drive and overlooks the ocean. I took the very top photo from the gazebo, actually. I often come here to read or take in a rest before I continue my walks along the water. The gardens and birds the surround it are beautiful... and what a view!
- Pros:Perfect place for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle..It's very quiet.
- Cons:Not much of a nightlife around here
- In a nutshell:A great beach town for those that want to get away from it all..
