If Surfrider thinks that the gates are egregious and restrictive, take a look at the intersection of PCH and Selva. Where are the signs at this intersection that inform the public that there is a park with multiple public beach accessways? When I travel through Laguna Beach or Malibu there are signs posting information that there is public beach access, even if it is just a staircase.
What the City of Dana Point has done is withhold information from the public of their right to access. The city has one sign on the west/beach side of Selva that states—“No Outlet”—nothing about a beach or a park. How does the public know that there is any beach access at all? They do not, and the city planned it that way. Shame on Dana Point.
