Fodor's Expert Review Balboa Island

Newport Beach Neighborhood/Street

This sliver of terra firma in Newport Harbor boasts quaint streets tightly packed with impossibly charming multimillion-dollar cottages. The island's main drag, Marine Avenue, is lined with equally picturesque cafés and shops. A car-free bike path and boardwalk encircles much of the island for an easy and scenic ramble.
