Beautiful Clean Beaches, close to town, easy access and friendly neighborhoods. Close enough to Disney to make a day trip. Will come back again this year.

Newport Beach is the surfers paradise for the rich and famous. Huntington Beach (HB) is a more low key place with a nicer down town (parking must be paid until midnight!). Newport Beach has the finest restaurants vs HB more bars and low cost food such as Wahoos. NB has a ferry to balboa island (see my reviews) and HB... More

We visited Newport Beach two afternoons during our week at Disneyland. Found parking easily and swam and played in the water. Great beach on a sunny day.

There is quit a lot to see and visit at Newport Beach. Spend the day shopping, taste the fine cuisine of the restaurants. Walk til you drop. It's always fun to explore and take in all the yachts and million dollar cottages that line the shore.

Newport beach is a great place to spend a day at the beach. It's not over crowded and is very clean. The boardwalk is very enjoyable to walk down. You have plenty of room to spread out. Very family friendly.

Everyone has probably heard of Newport Beach and overall it is everything folks would imagine for a California Beach town. Lots of things to do, a vibrant beach and shopping district, and many restaurants.

This is a beautiful beach with long stretches of powdery sand...not a lot of rocks or seaweed/seagrass. The area is very clean, too. A pleasant place to spend a sunny day.

Normally we vacation in San Diego (Mission Beach) and NEVER again after Newport Beach. CLEAN!!! No urine smell, no flies and no seaweed. Wide open and very enjoyable. My only complaint? The lifeguards: One told my kids they could only dig a hole waist high. Another, the next day, said digging holes was not allowed.. Who can't dig a hole... More

The beach has a decent size surf for bodyboarding, but not overwhelming for younger kids. Lots of dolphins to watch out past the breaks and a pier close for shopping.
