Getting Around West Newport

Around West Newport

As you many have guessed, West Newport is primarily known for its beaches. The neighborhood boasts over two miles of coastline and some of the best beaches in Newport. Breath in the salt air while strolling the boardwalk or rent a Duffy boat and cruise around the bay. West Newport is conveniently located at the beginning of the Balboa Peninsula, meaning that you have easy access to the rest of the mainland and can quickly make your way down the peninsula to other notable spots like The Fun Zone, Balboa Pier, and the Wedge.

Homes in West Newport are substantially more expensive than the national average, however they are fairly comparable to surrounding areas. You'll find mostly single-family homes in the neighborhood with a handful of townhomes and condos scattered throughout the area.

The city of Newport Beach isn't particularly known for public transportation, and West Newport is no exception. Residents will likely need a car to navigate the city, but thankfully they have Pacific Coast Highway at their disposal. This highway stretches for over 650 miles along the coast of California and cuts through Newport Beach, providing quick access along the coastline. For a less traditional form of transportation, you can rent Duffy boats, which are small electric boats, to travel throughout the bay. Bikes are also an easy and popular form of transportation along the Balboa Peninsula and Lido Island.

West Newport falls within the highly rated Newport Mesa Unified School District. Residents can send their children to one of two well-regarded elementary schools or the equally impressive public intermediate school or high school. There are also a handful of private schools in the area, offering parents additional choices.

West Newport is ideally located where the coastline splits into the mainland and Balboa Peninsula. This means West Newport residents enjoy the convenience of quick and easy access to the rest of Newport Beach and surrounding cities, as well as the restaurants, entertainment, and attractions of the peninsula. West Newport includes Lido Isle -- a tiny, residential island best known to local teenagers for the Lido Bridge, where it's absolutely illegal, but lots of fun, to jump off. The neighborhood has a distinct "beach city" culture and is home to some of the area's most popular restaurants, bars, and shops. The Lido Marina Village is a neighborhood hotspot for upscale restaurants and boutiques and there are several neighborhood mainstays scattered along Newport Boulevard. And while West Newport sees its fair share of tourists during the summer months, locals also take advantage of an array of available activities. You can take to the sea in paddleboards, kayaks, or Duffy boats, or stay on dry land and bike along the boardwalk or hop on a Segway tour.
