A real gem of Southern California, Newport Beach is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with pristine beaches and the scenic trails of Newport Back Bay. It's easy to see why Newport Beach was and still is a playground for California’s rich and famous. 

Further to it's luxury, the area is rich in history, from the trendy galleries of Cannery Village to Balboa Pavillion, a waterfront icon that's stood for over a century. More recently used as an embarkation point for day trips to Catalina Island, whale watching or just harbor sightseeing. Visitors can also explore the seven picturesque islands surrouding Newport Beach, all reachable by boat.
