Beautiful but way too overcrowded

Won't go back most likely as I live in central america and our beaches can't be touched for natural beauty.

Had great morning walking the beach in beautiful weather. If you go early to get parking it is a must.

It's 50 miles from LA and feels like a different world. The place is really laid back and everyone is just having a good time. The atmosphere is relaxed and you just have so many things to do at the wonderful beach which is one of the best in So Cal. There are lots of nice restaurants and many different... More

A beach that stretched endlessly in both directions, sparkling sand and the smell of the Pacific Ocean. Clean and beautiful. Saw a full grown sea lion swimming playfully at the end of the pier. Parking requires patience but definitely worth the effort.

Lifelong resident of So Cal and this was my first Newport Bay tour. A MUST if you are in the area. I recommend a guided tour the first time and then a smaller boats rental like Duffy for a more intimate tour. So much to see. Good history lesson and ties in the transition to today.

Our family loves the beach and have spent a good deal of time on the Southern California coast. Newport Beach (located at the Newport Pier at 21st street) is one of the safest beaches for families of all ages. From surfing north of the pier, casual bogey boarding, body surfing or just playing in the surf and sand it is... More

I love Newport because it is clean, the sand is extra soft, and you don't have to walk forever in the sand to get to the ocean. The waves are great. The are fun show nearby and it's not overrun with tourists and people trying to sell you stuff on the sand.

It was unseasonably cool and windy the day we were in the area but it is a beautiful beach and there are nice restaurants and stores to visit In the area. Nice drive too! Plenty of nice hotels in the area too!

The beach is very long and well maintained. For people who drive, there is plenty of parking along side the road or on parking lots. There are lots of places to rinse off the sand before leaving the beach.

Had a great time at this beach. Be careful of any food you have... The birds will take your food. We had a bag of chips inside of a Walmart bag and the birds got in and devoured all the chips! So watch out :/
