A wide open beach used by most joggers in various time of the day. Since the stretch is quite long and straight, intermission by access roads from the street, it is ideal to explore the area in any duration. When we visit it during sunset, there were few people on the beach except the several joggers seen.

Not only the beach but the whole area next to the beach is very charming! Much better than Santa Monica Bay and Venice Beach! I just wanted to stay all day but we had to go to the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Newport Beach is one of the finest cities in the world. The culture variety is tastefully visible in the strip malls and boutiques lining up main city streets. There is always something to do, something for everyone big or small. There are endless shops, cafes and restaurants to pick from, as well as world class golf courses and other recreational... More

If you go before 10am you can take your dog on a leash, or after 4pm. It's a lovely beach, very famous. I have gone there for over 50 years. I'm a CA girl - and feel great when I see and hear the ocean.

Newport Pier is a fun place to walk around. Be sure to walk all the way to the tip of the pier and check out the coastline. There are also several shops and places to eat in the area around the Pier. Try walking south on the promenade that connects Newport Beach and Balboa, which is easily visible from the... More

Loved this beach town! Clean, uncrowned beach with lots of surfers. Do as much or as little as you like. Lots of eateries, nice restaurants, bars, unique stores. You can rent chairs, surf or boogie boards, bikes etc near the pier. Good site seeing and fishing from the pier. Public restrooms were clean. We parked for free on a side... More

Newport Beach is a lovely beach, with a nice pier, many restaurants and bars and you will find enough to spend your day at the beach. If you love beaches you will find a nice one right here close to the pier. But if you love wasting your time sipping a beer watching the sea you will not be disappointed... More
