Newport Beach has been my go-to destination for years now every time I want a beach day. I love going to Corona Del Mar when I want peace & quiet plus I get to take in the amazing views of all of the beautiful beach houses. However, when I want to walk the boardwalk, I go to Newport Beach Pier. Keep in mind, the pier area is way more crowded than Corona Del Mar. I’m gonna share some of my favorite spots in Newport down below 🙂
Seaside Donuts Bakery
Nothing is better than indulging in donuts while wearing a bathing suit. This is just your typical donut shop but my favorite part is that they carry cronuts (shown above). Every time I go, I always stop in and pick up half a dozen of these cause they’re just that good!
If you want to grab dinner at a nice restaurant that has an amazing view, then Woody’s Wharf is a great place to go. The food is so amazing especially the “bang bang shrimp” and the filet mignon with scallops. If you go on a Tuesday, they have an awesome karaoke night. Isaac and I now share a super fun memory about this!
I’m an ice cream fanatic so stopping by here after following their page on Instagram for weeks was a dream come true for me. My favorite is the “Chocolate 2” but oh my gosh they have some other amazing flavors that I’m dying to try! They are located in fashion island so you can go shopping and then treat yourself to a delicious frozen treat.
Things To Do
At the pier area there are lots of bike rental places where you can rent bikes, paddle boards, skateboards, and much more. Isaac and I rented a beach cruiser and an electric bike for just $27 for one hour.
You can ride the bikes down a trail that goes right along some of the most beautiful beach homes including this pink house or you can walk. Either way the views on both sides are amazing.
One of my favorite beach activities is just lounging around soaking up the sun while reading a great book. I love to do this even more when I’m at Corona Del Mar because it’s so peaceful and quiet.
Taking pictures is obviously one of my other favorite activities lol. The water is so pretty and blue which makes for the best background.
Overall, Newport Beach is probably one of my favorite places on earth. I can’t recommend this city enough! It would be my dream come true to move there one day. I hope you all found this guide helpful if you’re planning a trip soon to Newport.
