Discover the Fun Around the Newport Beach Boardwalk 

The Newport Beach Boardwalk is a three-mile pathway that stretches from 36th Street to E St. Not only can you walk, run, and bike on this stretch, but you can also stop by one of the many shops and restaurants along the way! The Newport Beach Pier and the Balboa Pier are the two main points of recognition on the boardwalk, offering fantastic viewpoints out on the deep blue waters of the Pacific. Other notable stops include the historic Dory Fleet Fish Market, McFadden Square, and Balboa Peninsula Park. Of course, you can always take a break to watch a game of beach volleyball or some surfers riding in the waves.  

Spots Along the Boardwalk Worth Stopping at to Enjoy 

Newport Beach Pier 

The Newport Beach Pier is the heart and soul of our beach town and lies in the center of the boardwalk. From the 1940s to today, this famous site stands as a symbol of the area and offers a glimpse into Newport Beach’s past. Today, most people walk the long wooden stretches of this icon, soak in the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, or use it as a fantastic backdrop for photos.  

Dory Fleet Fish Market 

The Dory Fleet Fish Market is a historic landmark near the base of the Newport Beach Pier. This historic installment continues to serve Newport Beach since its inception in 1891. You can grab some fresh seafood to cook at your Burr White Realty rental when it’s open Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday! 

Shopping and Dining 

You’ll find an array of local shops to check out along the Newport Beach Boardwalk. A handful of classic surf shops, bike stores, and everyday beach needs are steps from the beach if you need them. Feel free to walk in and browse while enjoying a nice break from the sun. The Newport Beach Pier also serves as the main hub for food along the boardwalk. You’ll find everything from fish tacos to doughnuts here. 

The Beach 

You can’t take a stroll along the boardwalk in Newport Beach without relaxing on the beach. Whether you take a dip in the ocean, build sandcastlesplay a game of beach volleyball, or test your luck at surfing, you’ll find something for everyone in your group.
