Actually looks of great roads in and around Dana Point that keep you off of PCH... if you go the the bikeirvine.org (BCI website) and check ride bank, look for the Tour de 5 Cities route slip - the ride start on Crown Valley and goes through all of those south OC cities - it's quite beautiful (but hilly). You might also out strava and look for rides with Crown Vally Pwy, Laguna Canyon, Moulton, El Toro, Aliso... as key words. Also, PCH south of Dana Point is actually fine to ride on... just take that down to as far as you want to turn back... there will be beach traffic however and if you make it to San Clemente, you can catch the bike trail along the freeway and continue down to Las Pulgas. From there you can actually enter onto the marine base but bring ID...
and as suggested avoid riding through Laguna as much as possible although north of Laguna is fairly OK (in fact go north to Newport Coast Rd turn right and all sort sof possiblities open up...) ... If I take the Canyon to Laguna, I tend to go inland before PCH and ride through the neighborhoods until I am out of Laguna then I hit PCH...
