This is a no-brainer, straight drive from Riverside County communities as well as from the Victorville area and Las Vegas. In summer get here early to find nearby street parking. There are pay lots but you might have to return to feed the meter throughout the day. Some meters will take credit cards, some use a smart phone app. So... More

We spent several day in Newport Beach on vacation with our son and his family. Everything was amazing from the beaches to the shopping. The whole area was just beautiful. Every person that we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. Would love to go here again sometime.

Rented a 3 bedroom home two houses from the sand- great idea! Walking distance to grocery store, beach shops, pier and a short drive to Balboa fun zone and Balboa Pier with Rubys hamburger restaurant at the end. Beautiful sunny days- perfect temps. Bought the kids boogie boards for ocean fun. Saw sand crabs, dolphins, baby sand pipers, sea anemone,... More

Newport Beach is sunny and beautiful. There is so much to do, and many beaches and activities right in the area. Newport Coast Villas is a great place to stay. They have pools, outside activities for all ages, and amazing views.

Spent an evening on Newport Beach during our trip. Very clean, well kept beach. Beautiful area & views. Would love to have had more time on the beach was so happy to have the chance to visit regardless of time allowed.

Newport Beach is a lovely sightseeing spot. The Pacific is a little cold for swimming but there are little shops and restaurants to visit. We took a boat cruise around the island and saw Sealions, amazing homes and took in the beauty of the pacific. Great fishing spot as well!

Beautiful beach, great to walk on and take in the sights! Came near sunset and it was very quiet and peaceful. Take a stroll on the pier!

I was in the area on business. I was just going to go back to the hotel at the end of the day, but my counterparts talked me into going to the beach to watch the sunset. I am so glad they did! This was so peaceful and beautiful it was good for my soul. Parking was reasonable and there... More

Newport is a great beach area because its one of the more clean beaches in Southern CA and it also has Corona Del Mar which is a little secluded beach with bonfire rings. Much nicer and better than Huntington

Rented boogie boards and the kids rode the waves for hours as we adults relaxed on the beach. Saw whales off the shore and heard the sea lions over by the pier. Some great bike watching along the beachfront sidewalk
