Newport beach is lovely, but the major problem is parking there is just no where to park as all available spaces are filled especially on weekends, so very stressfull trying to get parked. Good amenities and choice of bars and resturants. We visited the Spaghetti House resturant and it was very good value for money

We enjoyed our trip to Newport beach. The pier was great and the kids loved the ocean. Parking was a bit of a challenge, and several people told me this was actually a light night. Beautiful views!

You may park at the pier where they have parking meters that accept credit card. Make sure you park at a spot that is good for more than and hour; up to six hours, since some meters are only good for one hour. You may walk on the pier and dine at the cafe, swim or surf by the pier.... More

Awesome! One has it all the beach, bike paths, scenic sites and restaurants - need I say more. The highlight was riding bikes along the beach taking in the smell of the Pacific and people watching. Very clean my compliments to the city. Californians by definition are very active and all you need to see it working is stroll by... More

The beach is easy access and we found plenty of parking. In early June it was not crowded and we had a great day, brought our lunch and enjoyed fantastic family time playing in the surf.
