Holidays To Newport Beach
Looking for a surfer’s playground with a refined side? You can spend your holiday in Newport Beach catching wave breaks and getting sand between your toes, or taking a wine tour or chartering a yacht. Why not all three? On the coast of Southern California’s famous Orange County, Newport Beach is both easygoing and action-packed. Sound too good to be true? Well, between walking the pier and kitesurfing in the breeze, you’ll have to find out for yourself. Challenge accepted? Scoop up the Newport Beach package deals right here and say hello to the “Golden State!”
Things to Do in Newport Beach
First things first—slather on the sunscreen and change into your bathers, because the waves don’t stop. Surfing is serious business around here and no Newport Beach holiday is complete without sunning on city’s own namesake stretch of sand or catching the currents at The Wedge, a small beach with huge waves on the end of Harbor Island.
When you’re ready to dry off, take the ferry over to Balboa Island for an easygoing arvo on the quiet boardwalk. Not into that much peace and quiet? Scream and shout at Balboa Fun Zone, a seaside amusement park that’s classic SoCal fun!
To dabble in finer things like a Newport local, check out the loads of charter options—from whale-watching tours to booze cruises—or pick up one of Wotif’s Newport Beach car hire options and shake off your sea legs while browsing the galleries at the Orange County Museum of Art.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Maybe you’ve heard about Newport Beach fashionistas. Well, those designer ensembles and fancy shopping malls are pure Newport Beach swag. Fashion Island—an outdoor collection of flagships and boutiques—is one of the most popular malls on the West Coast (psst—save for the splurge by booking our Newport Beach packages). For local treasures, peruse the shops on Balboa and Harbor Islands.
With fabulous shopping comes fine dining, and you’ll never be far from either one. Like in the rest of California, Newport Beach is home to global dining. Fusion cuisines with a fresh, West Coast spin are especially popular. Inland, Westcliff Drive is a busy foodie street, but if you’re after waterfront dining, tuck in along the Balboa Peninsula.
When you’re ready for classy cocktails, stay right there on the peninsula. Not only will you be practically floating in the Pacific Ocean, but you’ll be close to some of Newport’s most popular bars, dance clubs and lounges. A low-key California cool is ever-present, but if you want to hang with the casual crowd, hit up one of the local craft beer pubs.
Well, the surf report looks good and seafood in the harbour sounds great. Obviously, it’s time to book one of our holiday packages in Newport Beach, that’s what! You can mix and match accommodation and airfares like new headphones and trousers at the mall—and save loads more. And if you want to take a road trip up the iconic Pacific Coast Highway, see if our Los Angeles packages strike your fancy!
