Newport Beach reviews
Typical southern California beach town with limited parking and expensive hotels. The ocean side has wide flat sandy beach.

Clean beaches and ocean view. Plenty of parking! Affordable as well.
I love this long stretch of beach, as it’s seems to be the least crowded of Balboa Peninsula ocean-side beaches. Maybe the residents would like to keep it that way. Maybe the lack of designated public parking lots naturally limits the crowd control, albeit the backup of incoming visitors when a street parking space does become available. Here the views are awesome and the sand seems endless! To the northwest, the more crowded Newport Beach Municipal Beach and Balboa Pier may be visible. Looking southeast, the Newport Harbor Jetty at The Wedge may also be visible. There’s a restroom facility available here and trash containers nicely spaced, helping to prevent littering.
