If you feel like a nice relaxing day then Newport Beach is certainly a place to do so. I went nice and early to have some breakfast along the way. Chill on the beach, surf, maybe try your hand at fishing if u dare. I couldn't wait to hire a bike. Cycle along the bike path on the beach front... More

We found this beach after driving from a shopping outlet and is very pretty with some good eateries and shops around. If after surfwear, you have to go to PJ's Surfrider which is located on the beach. Well priced gear and good service.

I love the drive along Pacific Coast Highway! You can stop for lunch at El Ranchito and they are pet friendly. I was on my own and visited Ruby's for a shake. Newport Coast has the beachcomber restuarant and you can walk to the sand. Newport Beach is beautiful even on a cloudy day.

Newport has clear white sands and a good surfing beach. You can catch the waves, fly a kite or watch the surfers from the shore. The ice cream and burgers and hot dogs add to complete the day

Newport Pier is perfect place to watch the sunset and take photographs. Pier makes for an excellent way to turn an ordinary beach sunset into something spetacular worthy of framing.

Newport Beach has some very colorful restaurants and a great pier to fish from. The Crab Cooker is one of my favorite seafood places. Tell the owner Bob Rubian that I sent you! Check all of the little side streets for almost hidden restaurants and night life places.

Had a great time walking the hiking trail at the lagoon. Newport Beach has really nice nature areas near the water channels and they are great for jogs and seeing nature.
