Even tourists have heard of Newport Beach, as it’s made many appearances on television, from “Giligan’s Island” to “The OC,” as well as the films “Beaches,” “A Few Good Men” and many more. Newport Beach is a fully incorporated city with more than eight miles of beach stretching from the Santa Ana River to Crystal Cove State Park. With beaches like this, it is no wonder that people from all over flock to Newport Beach for lots of amazing recreation and relaxation.
Newport Beach is best known for surfing, specifically between the Santa Ana River and Newport Pier. There is also a great deal of bodysurfing and bodyboarding. If you like getting out on the open water, then bring that boat to the harbor and enjoy the largest recreational boat harbor on the west coast of the United States. The whole family can enjoy fishing, rowing, kayaking, sailing and paddle boarding. There is also a great deal of competitive boating events just about every weekend of the year.
If you enjoy shopping, then there are also lots of great shops in Newport Beach, selling everything from arts and crafts to jewelry, clothing, shoes and more. You’ll find a lot of great major retailers as well as smaller and more independent stores.
Or just head over to the Newport Municipal Beach for plenty of sandy beaches for you to lay out and sunbathe or hop in the water for a quick swim. You’ll also find lots of bikers and skaters here, enjoying the sun and the surf, and getting plenty of great exercise. In fact, you’ll want to head over to Newport Beach in the ML550 SUV from Mercedes of Encino, so that you will have plenty of room to pack that board or bike or other gear. Plus it’s a Mercedes, so you know you’ll arrive in style and you’ll travel in luxury.
