A Local's Guide to Newport Beach

Sunshine-lovers flock to the coast of southern California every year, and the coastal city of Newport Beach is one of the most popular resorts in Orange County. Known for the huge, boat-filled harbor, Newport Beach is charming and laid-back with plenty on offer for vacationers.

Relax and unwind in Newport Beach, take in the postcard-perfect views of sunrises and sunsets and forget the stresses of everyday life. Sandy, unspoilt local beaches are a mecca for surfers, beach bums and families. The Wedge, known for large waves, and Corona del Mar State Beach are the best in the area. Take a sunset cruise along the coastline, sample some Californian produce at a wine tasting or visit one of the two piers --- Newport Beach Pier and Balboa Pier.

Ten neighbourhoods make up Newport Beach and they each have a distinct personality meaning there is a beach vacation rental to suit everyone.

Active travelers can join a surf lesson and ride some of the largest waves on The Wedge -- as the largest recreational harbor on the west coast, there are ten miles of fishing, swimming, surfing, and aquatic sports activities.

Newport Beach is home to many events including Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race, Newport Beach Film Festival, Newport Beach Restaurant Week, Newport Beach Independence Day on the Bay, Hyatt Regency Summer Concert Series, and the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.

Golfers can enjoy a game at one of several public golf courses. Pelican Hill Golf Club has stunning ocean views that can be seen from every tee and fairway.

Art-lovers should visit the Orange County Museum of Art which exhibits modern and contemporary works. Meanwhile, shopaholics who want to have a quiet wander around the stores should visit Fashion Island - an open-air lifestyle center in Newport Beach, California.

Among the top sightseeing trips is whale-watching from Newport Beach. A guided boat tour is a great way to explore Newport Beach. There are always tour guides available to take vacationers on a trip around the area and tell the history of Balboa Island, Mariner’s Mile, Crystal Cove State Park and Newport Coast.

A trip to the two piers – Newport and Balboa – are a must. They are on Balboa Peninsula and are a popular tourist spot. Next to Newport Pier is the Dory Fleet Fishing Market which has been running since 1891 and brings back fresh fish, crab, octopus and lobster every day to sell before noon.

Music fans should pay a visit to Blue Beet – Newport Beach’s oldest bar and jazz venue. Established in the 1900s, it has been a general market, prohibition speakeasy and a cigar shop. Bar fans can also check out the 100ft mahogany and copper bar at the Stag Bar and Kitchen -- the longest bar in Newport Beach. The best places to watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean are Lookout Point Park and Inspiration Point.

Vacation homes and beach houses in Newport Beach come with all the comforts of home, from a large living room to separate bathrooms and even private hot tubs.
