Newport Beach is my favorite beach of all the beaches I have visited in Southern California. Parking is easy to find and there are plenty of things to do and places to get something to eat. The piers are nice and the waves are always just right.

Clean beach. Parking is available in paid lots close to the beach and a public restroom. Lots of homeless people around.

We spent a day at Newport Beach while vacationing in So Cal. There wasn't as much flat sand space where we were compared to other beaches we visited, but it was well kept and the views were beautiful.

Visited on a hot sunny day for the first time. It was a lovely experience. The sand and water was very clean. The souvenir shops had really nice things in there. Lots to choose from. Collected lots of shells. Would definitely recommend this beach and can't wait to visit again!

Even tho it was coldish December day, we went to the beach. This was kind of a must-to-do for me, as I had to step into the Pacific ocean during my visit to Ca. As my friend used to live in the area, she drove us to this beach. I was amazed how clean beach was, and how many people... More

It was my daughters first trip to the beach. She is 3 years old and this was a fun and lively beach. It wasn't too busy, but it was nice to have people around so she could see that others were not afraid of the water.

We've been coming here for years and highly recommend it! Fairly quiet year round, compared to other beaches nearby. They keep it clean and well staffed with police and lifeguards. Easy walks to restaurants and some shopping. Easy Uber ride from John Wayne Aiport. There are even mermaids! 👇🏻

Thank Gregoogle
