HUNTINGTON HARBOUR Huntington Beach Islands

 

Huntington Beach -- Huntington Harbour consists of a series of six islands (Sunset Island in Sunset Beach, plus five HB islands) and are but one of  numerous manmade islands along the California built to create residential communities for ocean-close living. The properties tend to offer more expensive homes than surrounding non-waterfront properties, and often come with boat docks included.

 

Huntington Beach's Huntington Harbour is home to the most expensive residential properties in Huntington Beach, in fact.  With a few ranging around $5 million give or take some, the houses that once shockingly hit the $1 million mark are coveted for the peaceful harbor lifestyle and slightly tucked away location to the channel exiting to the Pacific Ocean.

 

Huntington Harbour is not gated for the most extent. One community, Coral Cay, on Pacific Coast Highway, is gated, as are several little community associations for complexes of residential homes, townhomes and condominiums. But the islands, themselves, are open to the public and include several community parks operated by the City of Huntington Beach, several small beaches and the Peters Landing Marina on the mainland overlooking the islands.

 

Huntington Harbour is located in the northwest region of Huntington Beach and is comprised of a harbor, five manmade islands, several shopping centers, numerous restaurants, hotels, Peter's Landing Marina, Sunset Aquatic and Huntington Harbour launch ramps, plus schools, apartments, condominiums, homes and fabulous estates.

 

Bounded by the cities of Westminster, Seal Beach and Sunset Beach, Huntington Harbour includes a network of navigable channels that access the Pacific Ocean via Anaheim Bay. Five islands--Humboldt, Davenport, Gilbert, Trinidad and Admiralty, plus guard gated Coral Cay and Sunset Island in the County of Orange community of Sunset Beach include waterways and channels lined with multi-million dollar homes and estates, private docks and yachts. Shopping centers include Huntington Harbour Mall, Marina Village Mall and numerous smaller malls and shopping centers. Located in the Ocean View School District, schools include Harbour View Elementary School, Marine View Middle School and Marina High School. 

For guests visiting Huntington Beach, Peter's Landing Marina near Anderson Street and Pacific Coast Highway and Huntington Harbour Marina next to Huntington Harbour Yacht Club on Warner Avenue near Pacific Coast Highway offer several two-hour guest slips available on a first-come, first-served basis for boaters. To access Huntington Harbour via boat or yacht, you must pass Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station and Anaheim Bay National Wildlife Refuge in the Anaheim Bay. Huntington Harbour is the closest mainland location to Catalina Island (only 24 nautical miles) and is located between the largest municipal pleasure cruise harbor in the United States in Long Beach to the north and Newport Beach to the south. 


Huntington Harbour Yacht Club is the largest yachting group in Huntington Harbour. The close-knit community of members own a beautiful clubhouse and enjoy events such as boating and fishing contests and excursions, educational trips for under-privileged children and social functions such as meetings, fund-raisers and dinners.


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.


For tourists and local residents wishing to enjoy the beauty of Huntington Harbour, it is possible to rent Duffy electric boats in Sunset Beach and kayaks from Malibu Sports or Sunset Yacht and Boat Rentals in Sunset Beach.
