  • We were there on a chilly, breezy January day, and that might have colored my opinion. It was nice to stand out over the Pacific, with the waves ahead of us and the dunes (and parking lots) behind us....  more »

  • I was there last year & I absolutely love it there. It is truly an awesome place to visit. Would love to live there to be honest. If you ever go to California, please make Newport beach "a must" on your list. You will absolutely love it.
  • Rubys at the end, good place to get coffee, or desserts. And sometimes there are sea lions and seals swimming around underneath at night.
  • Parking is hard, expect a little walk to the pier. Should rent a bike & enjoy the peaceful route along the beach houses. Rent bike around the ferry/Balboa fun zone, $10 for whole day. We didnt know that, paid $10 for one hour :(
  • On the beaten path. It is very fun to enjoy the culture, surfers, sea air, and wildlife. Bring your credit card to park.
  • Absolutely gorgeous views, very fun activities from sport fishing to riding a ferris wheel to taking off on a boat and sailing around rich people homes.
