I went to visit Newport Beach while in town for business. We went at night and though it was cold and windy there were tons of people out and about. This definitely seems like the place to go during the day.

Park right next to the sand. Pretty busy at night. Parking is free after 6 pm. Lovely to walk along the water.

So beautiful, with a local vibe. Beach is stunning and lots of shells to pick. Lovely sand. Check out Newport Coffee Company so yummy and the hotdog place next door has frozen cheesecake on a stick. So good!! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Great beach to hang out for a while. It's never crowded and there's always enough space for everyone. Great sunset views. A lot of stores and restaurants nearby. Parking can be a hassle during the weekends. Come early.

I recommend to go to Laguna Beach and to stay at the Marriott's Newport Coast Villas the location is great and you can rent it from owner, surfing and walking and getting around very easy to everything
