Capistrano Beach is situated along the coast on the southern end of Dana Point. Homes range from beach cottages to some of the finest real estate in Orange County. Many multi-million dollar homes can be found in the area, with some situated atop a cliff overlooking Coast Highway and the Capistrano Beach park below. Several celebrities live in the town area, notably on Beach Road, where Hobie Alter conceived of his bestselling Hobie Cat catamaran. There are more modest homes in Capistrano Beach, namely older homes located off Camino Capistrano a little farther from the shore.
