Big Corona del Mar Beach
Just off Ocean Boulevard beyond some of the best Corona del Mar real estate, you’ll get to a vantage point just above Big Corona. This is one of the most beautiful views in all of Southern California. From this point above the water, you can see stretches of both Big and Little Corona del Mar Beach, as well as Newport Harbor. On a clear day, you can even see all the way to Catalina Island!
Little Corona del Mar Beach
offers some incredible views of the Pacific as well as Catalina Island. This small and secluded beach is flanked by reefs on either side, making it a great spot for diving. The reefs also block most of the ocean swell, making it a perfect beach for families with small children and those looking for a more relaxing day in the sun.
West Jetty View Park
Next to the Wedge, one of the most famous surf breaks in California, West Jetty also offers some incredible views. When the swell is right you can watch world-class surfers try and tackle the large waves, or catch the sun setting along the jetty over some beautiful yachts.
