We love to walk on this beautiful beach. Interesting birds, lovely surf and great cliffs. We go to Chrystal Cove, park and walk down. Relaxing, take a picnic, good book, nice chair and sand toys. Always fun. Great sunsets.

This was by far the nicest beach we went to during our L.A. trip. We went in November, so the crowds were pretty small. It was nice just to sit back in the sand and watch the kids try to surf. There was plenty of parking and a public bathroom. We saw a seagull on the pier with a fishing... More

Clean, family atmosphere! Lots of kite flying going on. One of the best beaches we've visited in the U.S.

We went to breakfast here on the recommendation of a hotel staff and loved it. Set on the beach at the State Park it was like a trip back in time to the 40's, I wish my parents were alive to have been there. Great food that came pretty fast in spite of a wait to get in. Definitely worth... More

This is our first extended stay in Newport Beach. What a great place. I think wherever you stay to be much busier you will be close to the beach, restaurants, shops, and services. The beach is wide and clean, and great for kids with small swells farther out for those who would like a gentle surfing experience. There are bike... More

Last summer I travelled with my GF to L.A, it was our first time there so we rented a car and felt adventurous, and since our hotel was close to this beach we decided to go and take a look. The moment we got there the happy atmosphere could be felt, people of all ages walking, eating, surfing, fishing...smiling. It... More
