Newport Beach is one of the surfing capitals in the world. The Wedge stands out as one of the most powerful and awesome beaches to surf. Up and down the coast of Newport Beach, surfers hit the waves early in the morning, spending their days studying the swells to find out when the killer sets will be rolling in.
Another local water adventure is sportfishing. Newport Beach is an angler’s paradise from land or sea. Deep-sea fisherman can reel in Yellowtail, Sculpin, Sea Bass, Perch, and Rockfish from boats launching out of Davey’s Locker.
Some people prefer Newport Beach recreation on land. In fact, there are some who purposely avoid the water — on Newport Beach golf courses. Condé Nast Traveler Magazine ranked The Resort at Pelican Hill as the “No. 1 Golf Resort in the World.” The resort features 36 holes of championship golf with stunning ocean front views.
