Discover Newport Coast

January 7, 2015

If you are looking for beauty, Newport Coast provides it in droves. Both the aesthetic and natural beauty of California’s beach communities abound in Newport Coast. Away from the exciting beaches and business districts, Newport Coast provides the perfect location to discover and relax.

Newport Coast is located at the southernmost part of Newport Beach. Heading south from Corona del Mar or north from Laguna Beach on beautiful Pacific Coast Highway, you will be treated to scenic views of the Pacific Ocean as you approach Newport Coast.

Crystal Cove State Park perfectly names one of Newport Beach’s true gems. The hiking trails are ideal for both casual walkers and experienced hikers. Easy hikes to beautiful ocean views as smooth enough to take in sandals, while serious hikers and campers will love the 2,400 acres of backcountry wilderness. Short paths to the beach allow visitors to discover the beautiful sandy beaches and tide pools.

Take a step into the past in the Crystal Cove Historic District. The beach enclave off the Los Trancos parking lot is accessible by a 10-minute walk or $1 shuttle service. Lining the beaches are the Crystal Cove Cottages, built in the 1930’s and 1940’s, which are available for visitors to rent.

No trip to Crystal Cove is complete without a stop at the Beachcomber Café at Crystal Cove, located just steps from the beach. A bonus- it has the perfect post-meal walking location! Or view the ocean from above the towering cliffs at Ruby’s Shake Shack while sipping on one of the delicious shakes.

The Resort at Pelican Hill offers breathtaking views, spectacular amenities, and impeccable service. Named the #1 Resort in Southern California by Conde Nast Traveler in 2013, the Resort at Pelican Hill provides services for both travelers and locals alike.

The Resort at Pelican Hill has numerous offerings, including exemplary dining options, spa services, and a championship golf course with views of the ocean from nearly every hole. No matter what takes you there, the Resort at Pelican Hill will impress.

Newport Coast is also home to some of the best restaurants in Orange County. Enjoy delicious seafood at Bluefin or Bear Flag Fish Company, and high end dining at Tamarind of London or Mastro’s Ocean Club. You can view the rest of Newport Coast’s delicious eateries on

If you are looking for some retail therapy, visit the Crystal Cove Shopping Center with both national retailers and designer boutiques.
