I need to confess that I saw a picture of this place in IG and I decided to go visit and it was worth the trip. situated next to Newport Beach this is a small but beautiful beach with two areas, one that is the...More
Sunday night at Inspiration Point, sharing the top of the hill with several hundred others to watch the BIG RED BALL sink into the low grey clouds and disappear. We must have done this a thousand times. Some nights extremely clear, some so foggy you...More
We arrived around 10 a.m. and spent the entire day at the beach, our kids really enjoyed it. There is great sand and gentle sloping shore. We were able to watch the tide slowly rise all day and the waves were crashing down. We didn't...More
The beaches kept getting better for us each day. Corona Del Mar was the best. Had grass lawns, clean restrooms, gentle sand beach and plenty of waves to play in. We spent time building sand castles, wave hopping and more. There was even a little...More
CDM is a gorgeous beach. It lies below a residential area. Get there early as parking is limited. Great beach for families. Clean bathrooms and snack bar. Good for lunch. I’ve spotted dolphin many times. Easy to swim.

Various restrooms along the main beach and a really highly rated restaurant/ snack bar, Pirate’s Cove is just a tiny space..nothing but water, sand and rocks. See Gilligan’s Island open for view of Pirates Cove! As the Minnow sails out, the jetty is on top of scene, Pirate’s Cove at the bottom. Parking on beach level if you arrive early, 9 AM, lot fills quickly. parking on cliff top above is in a residential area and can be a long, long walk carrying gear. Especially down stairs, maybe 150 or so.
