Dee-Dee Devin’s Guide to Living Holistically in Dana Point

June 19, 2017

Health Coach Dee-Dee Devin takes pride in living a healthy life, and has made it her mission to help others do the same.  A Dana Point resident for 23 years, Dee-Dee previously lived in San Clemente, Laguna Beach and Laguna Niguel, before finding what she says is the perfect city to complement her lifestyle.

“I can literally walk everywhere – the beach, my favorite restaurants, to get groceries. I never have to get in my car,” says the exercise enthusiast, who regularly frequents Dana Point pathways, like the San Juan Creek Trail. “There are so many different paths; it’s easy to mix up my routine.”

Dee-Dee also participates in yoga sessions held every morning at Lantern Bay Park, overlooking Dana Point Harbor, and encourages her clients to do the same. “It’s a beautiful, restorative practice that’s fantastic for balancing busy lifestyles,” she says. “There’s also a challenging set of stairs leading down to the harbor that I climb for cardio.”

Here, Dee-Dee provides tips for living holistically in Dana Point…


Morning: Begin with a rejuvenating run along Doheny State Beach, taking in the crisp beach air, soothing sounds of crashing waves and breathtaking views. Center yourself with some calming meditation.



Afternoon: Meet up with family and friends at one of the many local festivals scheduled throughout the year. Some of my favorites are the Doheny Blues Festival, the California Wine Festival and the Tall Ships Festival, put on by the Ocean Institute.


Evening: Walk to one of Dana Point’s several acclaimed restaurants, serving healthy meals prepared to meet any dietary need. Some of my staples are Craft House, Two Left Forks, Waterman’s and Coastal Kitchen, with my favorite being Harbor Grill.
