Welcome to Newport Coast
A picturesque oasis of scenic nature in Orange County
A gem of Orange County, Newport Coast is an upscale community known as the “Pacifica Rivera,” or “where nature’s palette is at work.” It certainly seems so when you soak in the gorgeous natural surroundings Newport Coast is privy to. An upscale, charming neighborhood in Newport Beach, the area appeals to families and retirees seeking reprieve from the glitzy hubbub of Newport Beach’s busier, more downtown districts.
South of Newport Beach’s main body, Newport Coast wasn’t annexed by its counterpart until 2001, resulting in the community maintaining an attractive sense of self, supported by its natural beauty, luxurious surroundings, and community-forward residents. Located on the eastern edge of the coast, Newport Coast has it all — beachfront, friendly neighbors, a close-knit community, and high-end dining and restaurant options.
The area is known for its charismatic atmosphere, helped in no small part by the architecture present throughout. The small city is dotted throughout by attractive homes in Santa Barbara, prairie, modern, and other styles, including some beach cottages and luxurious condominiums. Placing emphasis on some vintage houses and stately homes, Newport Coast is picture-perfect, no matter if you’re facing the residential area or the crashing waves.
