My parents come from the Midwest every winter and stay on Balboa Island so this has become such a special place to me and my family. It’s our little escape - our home away from home. The walking path around the entire island is a must anytime of day. Great restaurants, lots of cute shops and the perfect place to spend a relaxing day.

Balboa is a peninsula that is part of Newport Beach and probably our favorite beach in Orange County. It is home to multimillion dollar mansions, a huge yacht harbor and gorgeous white beaches. We like to park off Palm Street, where you find plenty of paid parking right next to the beach.. When it’s not busy, e.g mid-week or during off season, you can usually park for free in any of the residential side streets. There is a wonderful playground for kids of all ages right on the beach, adjacent to the pier, so the parents can work on their tan while the little ones play. They also have an outdoor shower and bathrooms right there. The surf in this area is a bit rough, so parents should keep a close eye on their kids. Getting a milk-shake at Ruby's, at the very end of the pier is a must. There are several bike rental places along the beach that have bikes of all sizes, including tandems and the big "tourist bikes" and it's really fun to explore the area by bike. If you walk away from the beach (take Main Street) and cross over Balboa Blvd, you will have a wonderful view of Newport Bay with all its’ yachts & sailboats. There are lots of restaurants and several boating companies that offer private rentals (including small electric boats and kayaks) or you may also take a whale & dolphin watching cruise from there (Davey's Locker.) There are also several restaurants, as well as the "Balboa Fun Zone" that has entertainment for the kids (ferris wheel, merry-go-round, arcade.) So you can easily spend a whole day on Balboa Island.

I'm not a fan of actually getting in the water but Balboa Island has a lot to offer. One of my favorite things to do is go sight seeing, grab your car and just cruise through the spectacular neighborhoods where you will see some of the most amazing, custom designed mansions of all time! I also go to Balboa for whale watching. Check out Davey Jones locker in balboa for a good deal! They sometimes offer groupons for their whale watching trips, so check there first.

A short bike ride from the beach house. Go on the ferry across the Bay to Balboa Island. A charming place for shopping and dining on the main drag of Marine Ave. You can also drive your car on the 3-car ferry or go on foot.

Start your visit to Balboa Island with a walk around the island's perimeter, about 1.5 miles. There are some gorgeous views of the harbor, but the best part is looking at everyone's multi-million dollar house and picking out which ones you'd like to have for yourself. Then head over to Marine Avenue - the main stretch - and check out all the shops, restaurants, and frozen banana stands. Some of my favorite stores are Olive Oil & Beyond (colorful pasta and a great variety of olive oils and balsamic), Art for the Soul (quirky gifts), Bliss Fine Florals (a clothing boutique), and Sinfulicious (custom-made perfumes, shampoos, lotions and more).

Balboa Island is a man-made island in the middle of Newport Beach Harbor that is accessed by a small bridge from the mainland or the ferry from the peninsula. There is a single main st about 5 blocks long (including a couple of "original banana stands" for you Arrested Development fans). The rest of the island is surrounded by concrete boardwalk with private piers and public beach areas inbetween. It is a great place for an easy stroll. Adjoining the boardwalk on the land side are highly upgraded "beach" cottages. While walking around, you are literally feet away from the residents livingrooms and kitchens.
Park near the main street, shop or window shop, then walk around either the entire island or just cut across a side for a shorter walk. If you want a different view, rent a kayak or an electric boat at the fun zone and see it all from the water.

Recession? What recession? The word simply doesn't exist for Balboa Island residents. Nope, not when you can hire a private chef to BBQ a great meal off your balcony and make the tourists salivate, when you can't bother with curtains for your floor to ceiling double paned windows so that the whole world can marvel at all the cool things you have in your home, and when you have your own private dock that you sit and read from with a brightly colored rainbow umbrella.

Life is good for Balboa Island residents. We like to come to this private little getaway in Newport Beach that sits at the end of Jamboree Road off the 405. We park in the Rite Aid shopping center, walk across the bridge, and pretend we're one of the locals or dream of owning our own little 3-story house by the water front.

The shops are unique and creative. There's a cool shop right when you enter on your left called Peace Frogs. The owner custom creates all candles and of course, Martha's Bookstore - the quaint tea shop like bookstore. There are also plenty of cozy restaurants, a ferry that takes you across to the other side to explore a bit further, and overall an awesome place to just sort of get away. The shop owners are pretty friendly here. The residents not so much.

We had a great time checking out people's home, taking some cool shots, and just getting away from it all. Balboa Island is a great SoCal treasure.

This is a great place to spend a birthday or an anniversary or anything really!

The beach view is beautiful and unlike any other.
I would highly recommend renting a bike and biking along the strand as well as taking the ferry across just for the heck of it!

Cute little island. You can get to it two ways, first is drive down Jamboree past PCH and you cross over to the island. The 2nd way is to cross by Ferry which leaves from Balboa Fun Zone area.

The island has some beautiful homes, it's really nice to walk around the perimeter of the island. During the summer a lot of people rent the houses to be near the water.

There is a little section of restaurants and shops. My favorite thing to do is grab a Balboa Bar and walk around(square ice cream bar dipped in chocolate and covered with sprinkles).

This is a wonderful spot to spend an afternoon exploring some of the unique establishments. We were having so much fun partying with the locals we missed the last ferry back to Newport Beach so had to call a cab to take us over the bridge and back to our hotel.

What's great about the path on Balboa Island is the view of the harbor and the incredible architecture. Though you might be distracted by the glistening houses and nearby paddle boarders, it allows for a great memory after your workout.

It's a sleepy little island where there isn't a ton to "do," but great to walk around in the summer (do some shopping. eat balboa bars). Park on the peninsula and take the ferry over because parking can get crazy (it's crazy everywhere, but more on the island... plus the ferry is fun!).
