   Trinidad Island in Huntington Harbour, Huntington Beach, California

 

The five Huntington Beach Islands include Trinidad Island..  From Edinger Avenue, you must go beyond Bolsa Chica Street and Saybrook. Keep heading west toward the ocean and turn left at the fourth turn, Trinidad. As you enter Trinidad, you see beautiful townhomes located on lagoons to your left and right.  Those homes are Seagate. Ownership can include a boat slip and amenities such as tennis courts. 

 

Passing Seagate, you must cross a bridge to enter Trinidad Island. Just beyond the bridge on the right hand side is a park, small beach and public shower and restroom facilities. There is no lifeguard on duty but you will often see parents carefully watching their children play in the water next to the small beach.  Kids bring their float devices, fishing poles and generally have fun in the summer sun.  The beach and playground are favored by youngsters and pre-teens mostly.

 

Entering Trinidad Island is a lush, greenbelt and sign "Trinidad Island" which is surrounded by colorful flowers. On Trinidad, there are beautiful homes, fantastic channel views and a public park dedicated to Police Officer Leslie J. Prince next to a beautiful estate. That park includes a cement bench for watching the boats go by, a lush lawn for picnics and an exercise walkway overlooking Huntington Harbour.

 

The five manmade islands in Huntington Harbour include Trinidad, Humboldt, Davenport, Gilbert and Admiralty. There's also a small, gated Coral Cay Island accessible from Pacific Coast Highway. It is not counted as one of the islands. The islands are connected via Huntington Harbour waterways but are not accessible to each other completely, without "going around" Warner to Pacific Coast Highway and then Admiralty Drive. Many of the houses in Huntington Harbour have boat slips.

 

Public launch ramps are located next to Huntington Harbour Yacht Club. Parking meters charge an $1.50/hour fee. There's also a public dock that's often open. It permits two hour maximum docking. Another launch ramp operated by the County of Orange is located at the Edinger Avenue beyond Seabridge Townhomes. Stay right on Edinger, crossing over the wooden bridge. 

 

Huntington Beach, California - Construction began on the Huntington Harbour complex in 1963. Two islands, Admiralty and Gilbert, were included in the first phase of development. Today, Huntington Harbour contains five manmade islands offering a wide variety of home styles in both single family and condominium units. Every year, during the Christmas season, the Harbour residents present a “Cruise of Lights” by dressing up their boats with lights and decorations for a parade through the Harbour. Residents and visitors attend the nightly parades which have become a popular attraction.

 

The Huntington Harbour contains several political organizations and its very own yacht club with fishing trips. There's even a local magazine published just for Huntington Harbour residents.
