Newport Beach with a population of 90,000+ is home to the famed Newport Harbor. It is on the coast 50 miles south of Los Angeles and 85 miles north of  San Diego. With nearly 22 square miles of ocean and bay, including  several islands, the city offers the greatest variety and number of restaurants with water view dining in all of Orange County.

Senior visitors can enjoy unlimited things to do with 8 miles of beach, luxury shopping, spa treatments, championship golf and even more.

 Senior travelers find Newport Beach to be a coastal fantasyland where leisure and style come together in nine distinct neighborhoods. Newport Beach contains some of the most expensive real estate in southern California with homes costing $2 million and up that are surrounded by one of the world’s largest small yacht harbors.

Newport Beach boasts outstanding fishing, swimming, surfing and all types of aquatic sport activities. The 920-foot pier at Balboa Beach was voted Orange County’s best.


Travel from the east to the west side of the city or the north end to the south end and you will get a flavor of the distinct residential and commercial areas that combine to make the city one of the most attractive communities on the west coast.
