Surfing Newport Beach

Adjacent to Newport's beautiful new beachfront Marina Park, just 75 steps from the largest and most pristine ocean beaches in California, and enjoying ‘just about perfect’ temperatures year round, Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel is centrally located from a multitude of activities, shopping and nightlife that makes Newport Beach the vibrant beach community that it is.

With so much to see and do, it won’t be hard to fill your time while you’re here.  Between enjoying all the fun of the beach, the boardwalk or experiencing the stunning natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean and the hiking trails of the Back Bay, you’ll find a vacation filled with every kind of activity from surfing to birding; from world-class shopping to whale-watching.  

And when you've spent the whole day enjoying the beauty of our beaches, trails and parks, head indoors and take in an independant movie at a vintage theatre or a classic Broadway show at one of our many performing arts centers. 

Of course an important part of every vacation is great food and Newport Beach has it in abundance.  Watch as the Dory Fishing Fleet returns with their catch of the day and local chefs congregate to pick the freshest seafood for your dining pleasure.  Food of every kind is available throughout the year from award winning five-star restaurants to the latest trend, gourmet food trucks!

For a lot more to see and do while you are in the area, check out and enjoy everything that our wonderful coastal community has to offer.
