Your Guide to Visiting Newport Beach in August

August Weather in Newport Beach

The August weather in Newport Beach is incredible. While it may run a tad hot compared to typical Southern California weather with highs in the low 90s, there isn’t much to complain about when you have the Pacific Ocean to keep you cool. However, average temperatures stay in the mid-70s, so as long as you pack sunscreen, you can spend endless hours soaking in the rays of sunshine on our vast beaches. Make sure you pack a light sweatshirt for evenings when temperatures can dip into the 60s after sunset. Plus, you won’t have to worry about it rainy, aside from the occasional day of showers.

It’s no secret that the best way to spend an August day in Newport Beach is on the sand. Our long stretches of shoreline are home to some of the most pristine beaches in Southern California. Between surfing, sunbathing, playing beach volleyball, building sandcastles, and playing in the ocean, you’ll never run out of things to do here!
