Find a Newport Beach Beach With Recreational Fun


Enjoy a warm fire and dig your toes in the cold sand. It’s an ideal way to spend time with family or friends on California beaches during the early evening as the sun starts to set. The fire rings are located at Corona del Mar State Beach, which is a beautiful Newport Beach Beach that is near the Balboa Pier.

Upper Newport Bay Beach is one of the premier recreational beaches in Newport. The 10.5-mile Back Bay Loop Trail offers fantastic terrain for hiking and biking. For marine, and wildlife buffs, the Back Bay Science Center provides a hands-on learning experience about the species of the estuary.

Newport Beaches have dozens of parks with play equipment, baseball/softball diamonds, and basketball courts for all ages to enjoy.
