Beach Harbor Pizza
4473 Golden Lantern
Beach Harbor Pizza has opened its doors with a new owner, an updated interior and the same high standards for tasty Italian fare.
Formerly known as Beach Cities Pizza, the popular pizzeria has long been a staple of the Dana Point Harbor. After 21 years of making and serving savory pies, longtime employee Mario Bahena finally bought the space and opened his own business, renaming it Beach Harbor Pizza.
Even with the new changes, the menu still serves up familiar favorites like handmade pizzas, pastas, sandwiches and breadsticks.
“People have really responded,” Bahena said. “They’re glad we’re open again.”
Beach Harbor Pizza is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with the options of dining in and take-out. Catering is also available.
