Newport Beach is beautiful! The sand is clean and there is lots of room to play in the sand. The boardwalk along the beach is a lot of fun with beautiful homes and some shops. We enjoyed visiting the pier and watching the fishermen!

We walked all along the Newport Beach and watched the surfers waiting to catch the perfect wave. We also went to the end of the pier to watch the fishermen try to reel in their catch before the hovering seals could steal it from their lines. Just a nice place to walk and enjoy the sand, sun and salt air.

Lifeguard watched over beaches that are well kept. Great safe area. Perfect for beginning surfers. Families head down to Balboa Pier.

We were hear twice, both on week days, and this was a nice, quiet beach. It is kept clean. Parking is on the street, some free, some with meters. There is an elementary school which backs onto the beach. Kids had there recess right next to the beach.

Go see it. Good for learning to boogie board. Gentle waves and beautiful beach. I got nothing more to add but am including this to reach my 100-word minimum for reviews.

When the wind carriers you away let it land you, to this oasis of fun in the sun; fly with the waves as you surf, and a place to have peace. Where a family can rekindle old memories to the modern age, lay demons to rest and enjoy the future that lay open before us.
