I live next door in Costa Mesa so I do visit often. Many restaurants to choose from nice beaches, public parking just don't go on the 4th of July. NO PARKING. There is no central area. There is Fashion Island an open mall, Balboa Island and peninsula with a few shops and restaurants. Two piers, tour boats and a ferry.

Im surprised by people going gaga over Newport beach. Its really an average beach. I dont think any californian beach will make it to my list of top beaches. You want good beaches in the lower 48 ? go2 miami. You want great beaches in North America, head down to the Caribbean.

Great sunset photos from Newport Beach. Great beach area with clean, deep sand. Visitor friendly with several restaurants and shops along a pedestrian walkway. Interestingly, parking for Newport Beach is available - on the beach. Sadly, rather than initiating a shuttle system to/from the beach, community leaders simply added parking on the beach, installed parking meters and viola - the... More

The beach is grand, plenty of fine dining and other food as well as shops and very nice homes to view. This would be a great place to live... For some action travel down Balboa to East Jetty park and watch the action at a place called the Wedge. This is where the pacific waves smash into a jetty wall,... More

Newport Beach is the nicest beach around. The waves break offshore a bit. It has lots of restaurants and sightseeing.

I actually laughed out loud when I heard that Newport made the Top 25 Beaches list! I spent the first 30 years of my life living within a short drive of this beach. Even though I have family in nearby Huntington Beach, I avoid Newport like the plague! Incredibly congested area re: traffic, and parking is a nightmare. You'll find... More
