...to watch the sun going down over the Pacific. The lookout is nice and easily accessible. Must do.

During our two week trip in CA, we stayed in Newport Beach. At sunset we drove into a residential area to find an un obstructed view of the sunset. To our surprise Inspiration Point was exactly what we wanted. The area wasn't crowded by many tourists or locals. The point is on a steep cliff that is paved and tiered. The path leads you down to a small beach. The top and middle tiers have benches to sit and watch the sunset. This site is optimal if you are in the area and want to see the sunset. We will definitely return.

I am finally sharing my absolute BEST treasured spot in all of OC. I have been here countless times, throughout the seasons. It even takes the icing over Crystal Cove and Laguna Beach, so I am setting the bar very high! Off the beat and path, nestled in the secluded residential community of Corona del Mar - off a limited stretch of Ocean Blvd, overlooking the cliffs...

Inspiration Point and Lookout Point in CdM (Corona del Mar) is my FAVORITE serene ESCAPE for introspection, reflection, and taking in the ocean breeze, without getting any sand in my shoes or getting my feet dirty. :-) BEST part!

Prime coastal real estate, with stunning ocean and harbor views, surrounded by large multi-million homes! Looks more amazing when you are standing here. Pictures do not justify the true ocean's essence and beauty, especially during sunset! WONDERFUL for picnics, a stroll, and jogs too.. You can go down the stairs for a barbeque, fire pits, and even rock climbing.

Get ready to capture your breath when you take a stroll here, complimentary street parking throughout Ocean Blvd and neighboring residential streets!

Park on the local streets, bring a picnic lunch, and enjoy one of the finest views in California for free. It doesn't get any better.
