The Balboa Peninsula is a residential and commercial area located on a 3.5-mile strip of land between the Newport Harbor and Pacific Ocean in Newport Beach. The prestigious stretch of land is dotted with oceanfront, bayfront, and seaside single-family homes, multi-family homes, and luxury condos. The highly sought-after neighborhood is regarded for its beach, laid-back lifestyle, and luxury real estate options.
Balboa Peninsula real estate is divided between multiple neighborhoods. Peninsula Point — one of the most exclusive — is located at the far end of the peninsula. Comprised of spacious single-family homes, the community also offers residents a beautiful private beach and boat ramp. The neighborhood is also by a world-renowned surfing area known as “The Wedge“. On the other end of Balboa Peninsula, Balboa Coves is a gated community comprised of quaint single-family homes. The Newport Harbor area of Balboa Peninsula offers homes of various sizes, with many offering private boat dockage. Outside of these Balboa Peninsula neighborhoods, there are luxury homes, townhomes, and condos located along the boardwalk and beach.
The extensive list of waterfront activities is undoubtedly one of the main allures of Balboa Peninsula. The Balboa Fun Zone offers iconic family fun, and the Balboa Pavilion offers a host of marine recreational activities. The Newport Pier is located on the northern side of the peninsula, while the Balboa Pier is located toward the southern end. Both are popular fishing and sightseeing locations. Of course, the peninsula is also home to numerous restaurants and shops. For families, Newport Elementary School is highly ranked and even boasts a playground directly on the beach. For commuters, Balboa Peninsula is connected to the mainland via the Pacific Coast Highway and numerous convenient bridges.
