   Humboldt Island in Huntington Harbour, Huntington Beach, California



Humboldt Island in Huntington Beach, California is not related to Humboldt County on Californiaa's northern coast. Although they share the same ocean, the Pacific Ocean, Humboldt County features the world's oldest redwood trees in great forests, plus over 40 inches of rain annually. Humboldt Island, however, features a scant 10 to 15 inches of annual rainfall, Mediterranean climate and some scattered palm trees. There is one small redwood grove in Huntington Beach where Humboldt Island is located but that small grove is dwarfed by the height and age of the Northern California state forest lands. 



What Humboldt Island in Huntington Beach enjoys as one of five manmade islands in the City of Huntington Beach is easy access from Edinger Avenue and Saybrook. There are no association fees and the island is open to the public.   Located in Huntington Harbour, it features on and off water houses, including many with boat docks. Interior square footage starts around 1,850 and can go as high as 10,000 sq.ft. in a waterfront estate.  



A quaint "Mother's Beach" and annual Huntington Harbour Boat Parade plus Cruise of Lights fund raising event with tours of the lit houses are special treats. Popular at this lovely little beach where people go in the summer to relax, read a book and watch the children play is the easy launch for rafts and kayaks.  Kayaking the Huntington Harbour waters is a fantastic form of exercise. The slow speed regulations prohibit jet skiing.



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.
