Balboa Island in Newport Beach is a tiny, quaint island that brings to mind a simpler time when days were spent on the beach and nights around a bonfire.
Balboa Island is a gem whether you drive, walk, bike or take the Balboa Island Ferry to the island. A stroll down Marine Avenue will take you through chic boutiques, art galleries, and jewelry stores. Along the way, you can stop for a bite at one of many Newport Beach bistros serving up a variety of dishes bursting with flavor.
As your day draws to a close, you can pull up a patch of sand and watch the sunset over Newport Harbor. A visit to Balboa Island is a quaint escape!
