Traveling around the city of Newport Beach you will get a taste of the different residential and commercial areas that make up the city, one of the most desirable living locations on the entire west coast. Newport Beach is known for its “villages”, each of which has its own different atmosphere. These villages include:
Balboa Peninsula stretches out for three miles and is lined by the Pacific Ocean on one side with the Newport Harbor on the other. It is renowned world wide as the home of “The Wedge”, a fabulous spot for bodysurfing, as well as the Ocean Front Walk, which is one of the most spectacular walks in the entire region. At the bottom of the Newport Pier you will find the charming McFadden Square, named after the family who helped found the city and the Dory Fishing Fleet, which is where fisherman from the area bring fresh fish each day. If you head down south about a mile you will be in Balboa, another village of the city, boasting the Balboa Fun Zone, Balboa Pier and the historic Balboa Pavilion. Catching a local ferry will conveniently take you across to Balboa Island, a must see destination for tourists.
A charming area filled with shops and spectacular waterfront dining, Lido Marina Villa is a great place to spend some time, visit the historic Lido Theater and experience the panoramic views of the water.
