Fodor's Expert Review Newport Harbor

Newport Beach Nautical Site/Lighthouse

Sheltering nearly 16,000 small boats, Newport Harbor may seduce even those who don't own a yacht. Spend an afternoon exploring the charming avenues and surrounding alleys; take California's longest-running auto ferry across to Balboa Island. The fare is $2 for car and driver for the scenic crossing. Several grassy areas on the primarily residential Lido Isle have views of the water. To truly experience the harbor, rent an electric boat for a pleasant day cruise or try stand-up paddleboarding in the sheltered waters.
