On August 16 I planned a trip to Newport Beach California. I had rented a car thru Hertz. Hertz rental car agents at orange county airport did not advise me that there were toll roads. I went thru a toll area thinking I was going to pay someone in person. NO it was a toll violation camera. I called Hertz,... More

We were in Newport Beach during a heat wave and I actually didn't mind much. The beaches are all fantastic allowing great views of surfing and body boarding and everything in town was clean and beautiful. The State of California, however, has made it very irritating if you don't know where to go because it's $15 to park anywhere on... More

This is a city that really, really has everything---numerous beach areas (Balboa peninsula & Island), a first-class shopping area (Fashion Island) a first-class business area (Newport Center), a more traditional neighborhood area (Corona del Mar), and one of a kind resorts (Pelican Cove, Newport Coast villas, Island Hotel). If you like Southern California, you will like Newport Beach. The city... More

Loved the boardwalk all along the beach. Renting a bicycle for $8 an hour is a great way to see all the cute cottages and the long stretch of beach. Beautiful!!

Very quiet beach and very very clean! Lets keep it that way too! Parking isn't too difficult, unless its a very busy weekend and if you are trying to stay close to the pier.

I loved this beach, it was raked and the beach was in good shape. I liked the lifeguards both in the water and on the beach around. We rented beach chairs and body boards for a reasonable price right on the beach. Parking was right down the street and no trouble finding a spot.

Relax, be active, whatever you want - it's so much fun to be in Newport! My favorite thing to do is rent bikes and ride down to The Wedge to watch the surfers.

I've been going to Newport Beach for the last 50 years and it still has the beautiful beaches, quaint little shops and my all time favorite restaurant "The Crab Cooker' that has the freshest shrimp cocktail anywhere. Yum. The beach front houses are still the same and as well-kept as ever. Everyone was friendly and enjoying the beautiful weather. We... More
