Salt Creek is a small coastal stream in southern Orange County in the U.S. state of California. The 4mi creek drains 6.1mi2 in parts of the cities of Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, and San Juan Capistrano. 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.NameSalt Creek's name originates from when Spanish explorers named the creek "Arroyo Salado" . The name given to the creek by the indigenous people has been lost.CourseSalt Creek begins in a series of small canyons west of the Street of the Golden Lantern, an arterial roadway that connects with Dana Point at the south end. The canyon the creek begins in is protected as part of the Salt Creek Corridor Regional Park, which covers most of the creek's course. The creek winds west through the narrow gorge, picking up runoff from numerous residential communities both north and south of the Salt Creek Canyon. Just before it crosses beneath Niguel Road, which also runs in a north-south direction, it receives runoff from a large storm drain on the right bank; this drains much of the small valley to the north of the Salt Creek Canyon.Our Dana Point day trip website makes visiting Salt Creek Beach and other Dana Point attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Salt Creek Beach Reviews
ビーチの手前には綺麗に整備された緑の芝生が広がり、休日はのんびり寛ぐ家族連れで賑わっていました。青い空、輝く海、緑の芝生のコントラストが本当に美しく、魅せられます。ビーチ沿いの遊歩道を散歩するのも気持ち良いです。リッツカールトンを見上げる景色も素晴らしいですが、ホテルに繋がる小道を上がって、丘の上から眺めるオーシャンビューも見事です。 more »In front of the beach, there was a beautifully maintained green lawn, and on holidays it was crowded with families who were relaxing and relaxing. The contrast between the blue sky, the sparkling sea and the green grass is truly beautiful and captivating. It is also pleasant to take a walk along the promenade along the beach. The view overlooking the Ritz-Carlton is amazing, but the ocean view from the top of the hill is also spectacular, up the path leading to the hotel.
ビーチも良かったですが、駐車場とビーチの間にあるなだらかな広々とした芝生エリアが最高でした。訪れたのが日曜だったため、現地の家族連れが多く来ていました。リッツ・カールトンにいらしたらこちらも是非訪れてみて下さい。傾斜地ですので行きは道路から下り、帰りはホテルのコウテジーシャトルを利用されるのがベストかと。 more »The beach was good, but the spacious lawn area between the parking lot and the beach was great. Because it was Sunday, a lot of families came there. If you come to the Ritz-Carlton, please come and visit us. Because it is a slope, it is thought that it is best to go down from the road, and to use the hotel's koutegy shuttle on the way back.
