Balboa Travel
Balboa Hotels in California


is a beach destination within the city of Newport Beach. For those who have watched shows such as MTV and trendy shows, you may recall, The OC. Newport Beach is where it took place and the real place is even better than the show portrayed. Neighborhood beaches, established with history, offer more intimate appeal than the massive beaches to the north in Huntington Beach and L.A. When looking for a family-friendly, laid back vacation, you can stay in Balboa and hop aboard the boat to Catalina Island, just two minutes across the street from the hotel. Now how convenient is that?

On Balboa, which is also known as Balboa Peninsula, there's a fun zone, a nautical museum, carousel, ferry boat ride, shops, cotton candy, Balboa Bars and souvenir shops.

In addition to renting boats, taking fishing or whale watching trips, fishing from a pier or learning to surf, you can roller blade, rent a bike, play volleyball and build a bonfire. The beautiful beaches of Newport Beach are outside your hotel door and at your beckoned call.

Another attraction you may want to check out is The Wedge. This super dare-devil wave crunch brings out the best body boarder who proceed with caution as they are challenged by nature. Many have been injured here so it's recommended you not try it yourself unless you have skill, know what you're doing and proceed with caution.

From you vantage point on Balboa, you can see the Pacific ocean to the west, and Balboa Island to the east. This peninsula offers limited hotels (be sure to check out Newport Beach for several that are actually on Balboa), but a stay in Balboa is one of the most fun, memorable trips you can plan.
