Newport Beach, California Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Newport Beach - Overview

Newport Beach is a medium-sized coastal city in Orange County, California, known for its fantastic surf and beaches, its active boating harbor, and its family-friendly attractions and events. It is one of the most affluent communities in the U.S., and the plentitude of yachts in the harbor will attest to that. But Newport Beach residents aren’t snooty, and the numerous events and festivals held in town throughout the year are generally open to all. Visitors flock to Newport Beach for its surfing, boating, its amusement park, festivals, shopping, and more.

Sand, Harbor, Peninsula, Island

Geographically Newport Beach consists of 3 mile long Balboa Peninsula, Newport Harbor, and Balboa Island. A broad sandy beach stretches the length of Balboa Peninsula along with a concrete boardwalk that intersects two large piers. The Balboa Fun Zone amusement park and the Balboa Paviliion are located here and constitute some of Newport’s most famous landmarks. Newport Harbor, on the inland side of Balboa Peninsula, is an international boating destination and offers charters for whale watching, sailing, fishing, kayaking and more. The harbor in Newport Beach distinguishes the city from other nearby beach towns since it offers annual boating events, such as the Christmas Boat Parade. Take the ferry or drive across Newport Bay to Balboa Island for restaurants, pubs, and shops. Festivals and events are held there throughout the year.

Beaches in Newport Beach

The Balboa Peninsula’s long, broad beach is popular for surfing, body boarding, body surfing, sunbathing, and many other beach activities. It’s Newport’s main beach and is home to both the Newport Pier and Balboa Pier.

Corona del Mar and Crystal Cove State Park are other highly popular beaches in Newport Beach.
