Corona Del Mar, CA
Corona del Mar State Beach is also known as "Big Corona Beach." This sandy paradise stretches a half mile long, just east of the Newport Harbor entrance. The beach is edged by cliffs and the rock jetty of Newport Harbor, making it highly scenic and photogenic. Every conceivable beach activity is popular here, including surfing, volleyball, diving, and sun bathing. The neighborhood adjacent to the beach also makes for great sightseeing and awesome views of the Pacific Ocean. Bring your family and friends, a picnic, and definitely a camera while you enjoy the sunset here, watch the boats enter the harbor, and otherwise enjoy the fantastic scenery.
