Corona del Mar State Beach is a protected beach in the state park system of California, United States. It is located in Corona del Mar, Newport Beach, and operated by the city of Newport Beach. The 30acre park was established in 1947.HistoryThe beach had been a surfing hotspot until the late 1930s, when the Newport Harbor jetty was extended, leading to the creation of The Wedge as a popular surf break, but shielding Corona from all but the most southerly swells.Surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku is credited with the first use of a surfboard for rescue purposes at Corona del Mar beach in 1925, when a charted fishing vessel capsized in heavy surf and Kahanamoku rescued people via surfboard.

  • Just spent a wonderful Friday at the beach. Not crowded, school may not be out for some yet. There were a lot of parking spaces. Since we were hauling chairs and tents we opted for parking in the park...  more »

  • My favorite beach in OC. You can walk along the bluffs in the nice neighborhood and pet a million dogs(!) or walk the nice beach. Swimming is great here. Plenty of open water swimmers come out here to train by swimming along the buoys. Just don't staple bloody steaks to your wetsuit first.
  • Nice houses, nice neighborhood, but the beach is suffocating specially over a weekend day! I hadn't seen so many cholos and ugly people in front of the beach with Walmart pjs on at one place 🤤
  • One of my favorite places on earth (considering I'm from Indiana that probably doesn't mean as much now but still)
  • Wonderful beach. Bonfire pits. Snack bar and recently renovated bathrooms. Great all around beach for casual beach goer
  • Volleyball, ocean, sand, showers, and restrooms. What more can you ask for? $15 all day parking. Very nice beach
