Strand Beach Funicular is a funicular railway in Dana Point, California that transports people between a beach area and a hilltop, making the beach accessible. A developer agreed to construct this amenity for the city as part of an overall deal for a large real estate development. It was completed and opened in 2009, and ownership and operation was turned over to the city.[1][2][3][4]
