Newport Coast is luxury on the Pacific

Infinity pools glisten under the California sun, while lanky palm trees sway overhead, charming hacienda-style architecture beckons in-between the jacaranda blooms, and the land spills down to stretches of sun-yellow sand and the roaring waves of the Pacific Ocean. Welcome to the well-to-do reaches of southern Orange County, where the mansions are home to VIPs and A-listers, fashionistas strut their stuff, and Newport Coast vacation rentals promise high luxury near some of LA's hottest spots.

Find your inner fashionista in Newport Coast

The Newport Coast is home to some of the coolest hotspots in the Los Angeles region. Trodden by self-proclaimed fashionistas, it's packed with yacht clubs and chichi cocktail bars. Bikini-clad models and celebrities can often be seen strolling or cycling up and down the seaside promenade, while long days and even longer pina coladas on the main beach are always top of the menu in the summer. Add to that a medley of jazz festivals, film fests, and high luxury shopping, and it's easy to see why Newport Coast vacation rentals are such an inviting prospect.

Hit the beaches and the fashion malls on the Newport Coast

A trip to Fashion Island or the sprawling Westcliff Plaza to crack out the credit card could be in order. Then, hit the beach. That comes peppered with palm trees and skaters, cyclists and coffee sippers at Newport Beach. Then, why not hop to the cutting-edge, avant-garde exhibits of the Orange County Museum of Art, or learn all about the long seafaring past of the region at the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum? Meanwhile, there's even more art at the homegrown shows of Balboa Island, not to mention some world-class surfing in Huntington Beach to the north.

It's one long summer in Newport

Thanks to its enviable location on the edge of the South California coast, the whole of Newport enjoys long, dry days from around April to September. The place fills up with its resident sun seekers in the high summer though, which means Newport vacation rentals close to the beach get pricier than usual. That means early spring – around May time – or the fall – in September and early October – are the best times to plan a vacation here, offering a fine balance between sunbathing conditions and cost.

Newport Coast: Where San Joaquin hits the sea

Newport Coast is sprawled over the undulating San Joaquin Hills, which glow verdant green as they unfold atop Laguna Beach and the sands of Newport itself below. And talking of sands, it's the coast here that really pulls the crowds, rolling out with wide beaches and palm groves, offering breathtaking sunsets and surf to boot. You'll also be able to hit the trails and see wild deer scrambling up the gorges in the nearby Willow Canyon, or go east to the Santiago Peak for real rugged mountains and higher hiking routes.
