Newport Beach in a nutshell

Newport Beach, California, nestled 50 miles (80 km) south of Los Angeles and 85 miles (136 km) north of San Diego, epitomizes the true essence of Southern California living. Featuring nine miles of sandy beaches, the city is home to a wide variety of visitor accommodations, attractions, world-class dining and shopping, the largest small yacht harbor in the world and inviting year-round weather. Featuring numerous small town villages each defined by their own character. Voted as the world's "Best All-Around Sports Beach' and appearing on two of Travel Channel's Top Ten Beaches Lists, Newport Beach is truly a recreational paradise.

With a perfect climate and pristine beaches, the destination is home to an amazing array of athletic activities. Surfers enjoy some of Southern California's best waves along the Balboa Peninsula, and beach lovers can run, bike or skate along the boardwalk or catch a game of beach volleyball on one of the many courts.
The choice of water activities is endless, and includes kayaking, rowing, canoeing, sport fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing and sailing. Also popular, is hiking and mountain biking through Upper Newport Bay Ecological Reserve, a 752-acre coastal wetland.
