Dana Point has some really great communities that are located near the beach and also represent some of the lowest priced condos.  I recently took a listing in the Spinnaker Run community the is located about a 5 to 10 minute bike ride to the beach and was surprised to learn that it was the lowest priced listing at $325,000.  It was a small condo one one bedroom, one bath and under 600 square feet so it's not for everyone but would be a perfect starter home for a young couple or a nice investment property.  The community offers a nice association pool, spa and a bike trail that takes you down to the beach in about 5 minutes or so.  Not too bad for $325,000 and considering it is currently the lowest priced condo in Dana Point as of the first week in April
