    Beautiful little relaxing town on the ocean. Do Balboa island (+ scenic water/boats around it), beach walk/on bike exploring, beach sunset.

    One of the greatest California beaches. Very chilled. The drawback is the parking... So hard to find unlike Huntington Beach.

    From the parking area up by the road, trek your way down the sand/rock formations for the best views of the sunset-great for picture taking. Go up back to the street using the stairs :-)

    Newport is my absolute FAVORITE beach in California. They have a beautiful boardwalk, shops and delicious restaurants. Try the whale watching tour if you are ever there! It's only $20 per person!
