On this past trip we drove 40 minutes out of our way to come back to this beach. This is one of our favorites. The beach is extra wide so you don’t feel scrunched in even when it is crowded. The bathrooms on the parking side are usually a mess but walk around the building to the bathrooms on the... More

Amazing sunrises and sunsets. Clear water. Not crowded. Good restaurants nearby. I will definitely be coming back. Only downside is parking is pricey.

We wanted a place to relax and breathe, Newport Beach was the place for that. Everything we needed was walking distance for us. Our boys loved it as well.

Newport Beach is a popular and clean beach. The pier offers excellent views. While on the pier, we saw a sea lion playing near the surface. Most of the parking is metered and accepts credit cards.

When we checked this beach area out we parked a few blocks away on a sidestreet and walked to the coastline, the first thing that amazed us was how friendly all the locals were. Almost everyone we passed said good morning or hello, it was the best start to a visit of the area. The houses are truely as beautiful... More

The Blue ripples of the sea shore had this calming effect on me, that I rarely find anywhere else. Newport Beach is a beautiful place. The scenery is just breath taking.

Great place to watch the surfers, many nice restaurants and a pier to walk out on for a great perspective of the beach city. Parking can be tricky on the holidays or weekends, so plan accordingly. Lots of shopping and some restaurants on the water with great views.

The people, the waves, the beach, the motel we stayed at Newport Channel One. Go to Balabo Beach and don't miss Seal Beach
