We had a great time wandering around Newport Beach. Metered public parking is right next to the beach. The water is nice and beach is clean. Boardwalk had some good eateries ranging from posh to popular local joints. It's not too crazy here, so it's a nice place for a family to visit - either to see the views or hang out in the sun and water for an afternoon.

Aside the beautiful homes, the beach scene was the same as any other. Boardwalk type area could have had more to offer.

Love this beach!!! You can park so close and it was not super-crowded. We had a great picnic there and the car was just a sidewalk away from the beach. Nearby bathrooms and plenty of shopping and restaurants.

Newport Beach is indeed home to many great bars and restaurants and a wealth of shopping opportunities, as well as scenes of surfers and the board walk traffic. I found several opportunities to exercise during the day this past month in Newport, to improve my fitness (age 62) while still enjoying the evening restaurant and bar venues. I rented a kayak and toured the Bay Water basin just east of PCH at Newport Blvd., and the harbour, and found great scenery and wild life (mostly birds, but spectacular ones), as well as the most beautiful restored yachts imaginable. I also rented a beach bike and pedaled from Huntington Beach down to the Wedge just at the harbour's mouth across from Corona Del Mar, a 3 hour trip along the beach and fabulous homes as well as the beautiful locals.

A pretty beach but still has the occasional tar ball, typical of this part of California. The pier is great to walk out on and watch the surfers and fishermen. My kids certainly loved running around and seeing the fish reeled in. One small group was using a net to bring up starfish and shells, we even saw a tiny little octopus, very cool!
