Destination guide

Corona del Mar is a jewel of Newport Beach

Life in Corona Del Mar is everything you want of South California. Lazy cafes that seem plucked straight out of central Paris pepper the blocks. The sound of Pacific surf is music to the ears of board riders. The drift of the ocean in Little Corona bay entices swimmers and sunbathers. And there's an indelible charm oozing from the Victorian townhouses and the vintage Corona del Mar vacation rentals, perched up on the cliffs just above the salt spray. Between evening swims under the LA sunset and fine dining with the celeb chefs of Newport Beach, it's likely you'll never want to leave.

Activities

Enjoy the oceanside in Corona del Mar

The sloshing of the Pacific Ocean heralds the real draws of Corona del Mar. Bag a Corona del Mar vacation rental close to the beach if you want to be first on the sands during the summer, or to watch as local wave riders conquer the swells that crash against the cliffs and jetties. Swimming and beachcombing in the nearby state parks is a must, too, while jaunts out across the waters to spot whales and dolphins with local folk can be organized in the center of town. And in the other direction are the San Joaquin Hills, home to sprawling shopping malls aplenty.

Weather

Cool off in Corona del Mar

Snowbirds and sun seekers flock to Corona del Mar vacation rentals in the summer. They come to ride the rolling Pacific swells and to cool off in the refreshing ocean waters when the Cali sun is at its hottest. If that sounds like your sort of getaway, then be sure to book your spot here between the months of June and September, when temperatures typically hover around the high-70s and there's dry weather from morning to night. Fall can also be excellent, with hardly any rain, fewer people, and mild evening breezes to boot.

Natural features

Corona del Mar is the “Crown of the Sea”

True to its moniker, Corona del Mar is the perfect place to go to explore some of California's top beaches. It's surrounded by 2 state parks – the Corona del Mar State Beach and the Crystal Cove State Park – where you'll find long stretches of glistening sand, muddy cliffs to their back and roaring left-to-right surf to their front. Marine wildlife abounds just off the coast too, with dolphins and whales all inhabiting the deep blue.
