Newport Beach is where over nine unique ‘villages’ fuse together each with their own unique characteristics. With unspoiled beaches, upscale shopping, excellent culinary choices and water sports the high-end Newport Beach residential market is creating a high-standard of living in South Orange County. The Balboa Island properties are found just north of Crystal Cove State Beach, which is just below The Resort at Pelican Hill. The automotive and nautical heart of Newport Beach beats at Mariner’s Mile, and when you own Balboa island real estate, each December the annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade passes right before your eyes. The Westcliff neighborhood is a community rich in active outdoor adventures, and at the Back Bay area of Newport Beach you will find amazing aquatic activities – from kayaking to stand-up paddle-boarding – for nature lovers and outdoors enthusiasts.
There are many cultural and culinary offerings at Fashion Island/Newport Center, you will also find world-class shopping at nearby South Coast Plaza and Irvine Spectrum – John Wayne Airport is also just a short commute away. The Corona Del Mar State Beach features surf, cliffs, a jetty, and a variety of activity from surfing and skim boarding to volleyball, and at Balboa Village you can rent powerboats, electric boats, sailboats and kayaks. The Balboa Peninsula is recognized for being a regional destination, and the Balboa Island properties are found on an area where they know “The Peninsula” as a three-mile-long stretch with the harbor on one side and broad, sandy California beaches on the other. Balboa Island real estate benefits from being close to Cannery Village which also hosts the Newport Beach Film Festival.
