Capistrano Beach in Dana Point has been battered by storms and rising sea levels in recent years. It was once a vibrant stretch of coastline with volleyball courts, a basketball court, and fire rings. But they’ve since been removed because of damage and erosion. Now the California Coastal Commission is looking at nature-based plans to preserve it. A finalized plan is expected to be voted on by the end of this year.
