Although Newport has its more historical areas it is, for the most part, a new, sparkling community. It is ideally located on or near the ocean and the climate is as good as it gets. Wonderful restaurants abound and for the beachies it can't be beat; great surfing, swimming or just sunning and enjoying the scenery and weather. If I... More

Beautiful sea shore. Great place for the family. Will come back again! Lots of good restaurants and shopping in the area. Expensive area though!

I love spending time on Newport beach and all hours of the day. To get there about a half hour before sunrise is always nice because it is much easier to find parking and feel like you have the beach mostly to yourself. Mid-day is packed (on weekends) and you can people watch and enjoy the great views. Sunsets are... More

Lifeguards were present - my son cannot swim yet. Sea shells to collect and local hotel provided toys for sandcastle building.

Nice beach. Drove through newport beach on our way to Los Angeles. Nice clear water, nice sandy beach, its a large beach. It wasn't crowded much in the middle of the week. If you are staying in newport or just driving through, stop and admire.

I drove down here from Irvine and just walked along the ocean edge for quite a while and back. It's very clean and not crowded at all - although that's me :). The sand's very clean too and I enjoyed a pleasant afternoon here. Plenty of food options and things to do as well if you're interested. Strongly recommend coming... More

Visiting Newport Beach on a Tuesday afternoon was a little challenging to find parking but we ended up at a metered lot. It helps to have some coins to feed the meter as we found out there is only one cash machine that provides change that is a long walk and businesses are reluctant to assist. Once crossing the street... More

We were really surprised at how clear the water was. The beach was very clean. We saw Sea Lions which the kiddos thought was great.

The beaches, food are awesome. Rent a bike for sure. Go see the wedge- well worth the visit. The surf is big, the people are beautiful, fun beach. Heard it's very busy in summer- would recommend going in off season. Rent a electric boat from Duffy's- great way to see the town form the water.
