    This is one of the best value experiences you can do. It's a legit no frill experience that you will likely never forget.
    You simply board with bike, on foot or with vehicle for a short ferry ride.

    This island helps prove that some stereotypes of Southern California are absolutely true. The place is beautiful, surrounded by water, with great shops and restaurants and real estate that is completely unaffordable! To make matters even more stereotypical, when we were there the fireman were doing an exercise routine which involved them doing push-ups in the middle of the road without shirts on. You just can't make this stuff up!

    I’m a large fan of Fashion Island. The scenery can’t be beaten and I’m fond of the smaller brands represented at Fashion Island. While I’m not the biggest fan of Fashion Island department stores, if you’re looking for something more personalized you can’t beat the atmosphere.

    Amazing views, great restaurants, good hotel selection. Beaches are terrific.
    Parking can be challenging but not a big problem.

    This is a nice and quite pier on Newport Beach. There is ample parking available as well as small and cute hotels for staying. Ample green space also to walk around. The pier is next to a quite town which has nice little shops. On the pier itself you will some fisherman trying to catch some fish. If you are lucky you may see some dolphins swimming in the sea also. Good to spend a couple of hours with the family.

    I had just finished a job in the early afternoon, and my company booked a redeye flight out of John Wayne International Airport. I found Inspiration Point on Google maps and said why not? It was worth it, I spent a few hours there watching the Pacific wash against the beach and the rocks. Very nice. Obviously a popular spot, but that doesn't take away form the beauty, from the views. It truly is a magical place.

    We have not been to Newport Beach in many years. It was fun, chili, crisp clear blue sky’s. We walked out on the beach and the pier. Enjoyed our afternoon in the sunshine

    This was such an interesting place to hike. There's a lot going on, between the sounds, smells, and wildlife. I saw many variey of beautiful birds.

    I did not give 5 stars due to all the litter in the marshs that was just sad. I'm guessing this washes in with the tide but it's so depressing I wished I could get down there to clean some up.

    After looking up the local Low Tide time, we headed for Little Corona Beach to check out the tide pools. Free street parking, steep ramp to walk down to the beach (going back up the ramp is much slower going!)
    My granddaughter was thrilled to see if there were any sea creatures in the rocks: she only found sea anemones.
