Located down steps or a
path from Ocean Boulevard near Poppy Ave., the top of the cliff offers
stunning views of the Newport Beach jetties and bay at Inspiration Point
Park. Kids delight in the wet sand on this beach that's narrower than Main
Beach, but offers easy access to the water. This entire beach area was once
known for its powerful waves that surfers enjoyed, but now is docile and
conducive to child's play because of the break created by the jetties.
Corona del Mar beaches
look across the bay to Newport Beach's peninsula and famous surfing spot
called The Wedge. The powerful waves that roll into The Wedge are the
same waves that would have impacted Corona del Mar beaches, had the jetty
not been built in the early 1900's.
Where to stay on
vacation, and make Corona del Mar part of your fun? When visiting
Southern California beaches, you'll learn that Corona del Mar
doesn't actually have any hotels in the the community. It is,
however, a part of Newport Beach and its bounds begin right where
Fashion Island ends at Pacific Coast Highway & MacArthur. So some
excellent hotels that range from
The Island Hotel to great resorts such as
Hyatt Regency Newport Beach or
Balboa Bay Club, and of course, many lower priced
Newport Beach hotels, all offer beach vacations with a
kid-friendly shopping center, tons of restaurants, and Orange County
Airport within 10 minutes!
Parking for Corona del
Mar's Little Corona beach is available free at the top of the hill. During
summer months, parking can be limited. While there are no restrooms or
concessions at this beach, you can take sandcastle tools, beach balls,
blankets and books to enjoy sunning, fun and a good time in the winter or
summer. Located in Southern California at The OC, winters can be equally
warm at Orange County's beaches.
Little Corona del Mar
beach in Newport Beach, California extends to the south from the Corona del
Mar Main Beach as the signs call it, or Corona del Mar State Beach as
California State Parks signify it.
