Clean beach for the whole family, nice community and GREAT surf school (Endless Sun Surf School) Good restaurants and family vacation rentals. Not too far from Disneyland and other popular destinations.

We love coming to the beach while visiting southern CA, and you can walk for miles here. Easy access to lots of hotels & restaurants, just a great place to relax, fly a kite (the fold up ones fit in luggage if you're traveling by air), beach-comb, etc...You can also take surfing lessons if you're so inclined. Something for everyone... More

We come to newport every year for vacation and will go to Newport Beach, Balboa beach(newport) just north of the balboa pier, huntington and Laguna. They are all different. Newport Beach is nice because it is a long beach without the steep drop off into the ocean. I find the waves aren't as rough so you can walk our farther.... More

Beautiful beach area with little shops and restaurants around it. Parking is tough because you have to keep paying your meter parking thru an app on your phone and it only allows 30 mins max until you have to pay again. It is a very cool California beach where you can definitely people watch. Very busy area for tourists and... More

We parked and took the parking shuttle down to the beach. We were visiting so we rented beach chairs from the rental stand. The boys working there were so polite and cute - the quintessential California beach boys. It was very convenient to be able to rent what we needed right there. They have umbrellas also but we opted for... More

Great beach, community and area. Lots to do. Pricey area, but many nice food and shopping options. So many fancy sports cars! Off season is just as nice, just costs a lot less!

This was a great beach with soft sand, warm water, and interesting people watching. The walking paths are fun to stroll and take in the beach culture and grab a yummy bite. An area where people are active and many out exercising, biking, skating, surfing, and running.

There is nothing to dislike about Newport Beach!!! well, except maybe if it's super crowded. We were amazed how warm the water was and I was so ready to jump in. Nice wonderful breezes and beautiful views of the nearby islands and HB pier. Parking is mostly metered and they take credit cards so you don't have to tear apart... More
