Living the Newport Beach, California lifestyle

History & Fun Facts

Newport Beach has always been a destination for sun & fun. Generations have flocked to the beach to play in the waves, surf, and enjoy the fishing and marine life in Newport Harbor. Newport began with little ‘beach shacks’ for family summer getaways, and has now evolved into multimillion dollar beach bungalows, tourist attractions, and luxury condos all year round. The current price range for Southern California’s Newport Beach properties is between 535K for a 1 bedroom condo on the mainland, to a whopping 32M estate on Newport Peninsula. Of course, there’s a little of everything beachy and luxurious in between.

Beachgoers have flocked to Newport Beach since the Pacific Electric Railway started bringing them in 1905. Attractions include the city beaches from the Santa Ana River to the tip of the Balboa Peninsula, Corona del Mar State Beach, and the beaches at Crystal Cove State Park. Newport Beach is known for good surfing, especially between Newport Pier and the Santa Ana River. At the tip of the Balboa Peninsula, The Wedge offers world-class bodyboarding and bodysurfing. Newport Pier and Balboa Pier draw fishermen and sightseers. A boardwalk runs 2.9 miles (4.7 km) from 36th Street in West Newport, past Newport Pier and Balboa Pier, to between E and F Streets on the Balboa Peninsula for both pedestrians and bikers.

Obviously Newport’s number one attraction is the beach. There’s surf and sand everywhere, which means plenty of paddleboarding, fishing, boating, jet skiing, surfing, and those picturesque west coast sunsets.

Newport also offers Fashion Island, a shopping experience with boutiques, restaurants, and luxurious hotels and condos. Other Newport staples are the Balboa Bay Club, infamous Hornblower sunset cruises, and Big Canyon Country Club.

For example, the 18-hole “Big Canyon” course at the Big Canyon Country Club facility in Newport Beach, California features 6,981 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 73.9 and it has a slope rating of 136 on Bermuda grass. Designed by John F. Harbottle, III, ASGCA, the Big Canyon golf course opened in 1971.


The 2010 United States Census reported that Newport Beach had a population of 85,186. The population density was 3,587.5 people per square mile (1,381.7/km2).


Newport Beach offers 22 different schools, all highly rated. The majority of public schools in the area are rated 9-10. If you prefer, Charter schools are also available.

California Housing Market Report

California Buyers Still Can’t Afford Homes

The issue for California residential real estate remains the same. Poor affordability means that despite latent demand, buyers can’t afford the prices of homes in the Golden State. For that reason, many have left to find much cheaper homes in other states. Unemployment will likely be on the rise along with lower business profitability (tech sector continues to lay off workers) which means fewer buyers are likely for 3 to 6 months.

The stronger consumer optimism is running against sticky inflation and a likelihood the FED can’t lower interest rates. But will that discourage buyers in California? Demand is always intense in CA. No other place offers what California has, and buyers today do seem to put lifestyle at the top of their list.

5 Trends That Will Shape Luxury Real Estate in 2023

Nearly 90% of respondents to the Coldwell Banker survey say they believe the real estate market will be better than or the same as 2022 for property investment. The following emerging trends were noted in the report.
