Early Bird Activities in Newport Beach

January 5, 2021

It’s the New Year and it’s time to stop hitting the snooze button! There are many perks to waking up earlier – watching the sunrise, fitting in a workout before many others are even awake, time for breakfast – which all lead to a more productive day. Remember the early bird gets the worm, so try one of the many early morning, socially distant activities Newport Beach has to offer!

Dawn Patrol

Grab your surfboard because it’s time to hang ten on Newport Beach’s famous waves. Paddle out near 15th Street, 54th/56th Street or The Wedge for rad winter swells.

Meditate in the Back Bay

Meditate and self-reflect in the serenity of the largest ecological reserve in Southern California. Watch birds and other wildlife begin the hustle and bustle of their day among 1,000 acres of beautiful coastal wetlands.

Sunrise Hike at Crystal Cove State Park

Wake up with the sun and hike along Crystal Cove State Park’s many trails with varying difficulties and lengths. The park opens at 6am, but the sun doesn’t rise till closer till 7am so gear up appropriately!

Breakfast in Bed

If the thought of leaving bed sounds miserable, sweeten it up with donuts from Dad’s Donut & Bakery Shop on Balboa Island. Fresh donuts are available starting at 5:30am every morning so you can rush back home to enjoy from the warmth of your bed!
