The great outdoors. And much more. Pendry Newport Beach is the epicenter of Southern California living, with access to the city’s very best shopping, dining, culture, beaches, scenic outdoor terrain and more. All under the sun, of course. Here are some of our favorite local places to see.

Fashion Island

Segerstrom Center for the Arts

Balboa Island

A throwback to the beach days of yore, Balboa Island is a must-see private isle where the charm of yesteryear meets the beach town culture of today. A favorite spot for shopping, dining and strolling along the water or among the intimate streets dotted with quaint private homes.

Sherman Library and Gardens

A well-loved public library and garden that leaves you feeling a little closer to nature with every visit. Get up close with local native plants, wildlife and more or take in an exhibit, art display or family-friendly activity for an in-depth outing you’ll forever appreciate.

Lido Marina Village

Lido Marina Village features a contemporary, casual mix of some of our favorite shopping, dining and harbor front destinations in a waterside village setting where sea salt fills the air. Find everything from Alchemy Works and Jenni Kayne to the area’s beloved Zinqué café and Nobu.

Crystal Cove

Now you’re in Newport. Crystal Cove is the area’s most popular stretch of coastline, a 3.2 mile span that winds along the Pacific Ocean’s coastal cliffs with jaw-dropping views in every direction. We love it for a beachside hike, but there are also mountain bike and inland horse back riding trails to explore. Don’t skip a stop at the Shake Shack on your way out.

Buck Gully Trail

Explore a new side of Newport Beach at Buck Gully Trail, a 4.5 mile moderate hike through the reserve off the Pacific Coast Highway. It’s a narrow trail that can be subject to weather conditions so avoid if it’s wet or rainy out, but on a beautiful day, it offers a lovely journey through a pocket of untouched beauty. No dogs allowed.

Corona Del Mar Beach & Pirates Cove

The closest beach to Pendry Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar is a half-mile stretch of sandy beach flanked by cliffs and a rock jetty. An always popular pick for families, surfers, divers and Newport locals, CDM is a favorite for beach goers and sun-seekers.
