Corona Del Mar Photos

Meaning “Crown of the Sea” in Spanish, Corona Del Mar is actually a part of the City of Newport Beach. Located 50 miles south of Los Angeles, 4 miles west of John Wayne Airport and 70 miles north of San Diego, it is nestled on and at the foot of the picturesque San Joaquin Hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Corona Del Mar ranges along a bluff at the South end of Newport Beach and includes some of the most prestigious residential areas of the city. It includes a high-end stretch of Pacific Coast Highway, with trendy shops and restaurants.

If you stand on the hilltop bluff park and look out to the Newport Harbor and Pacific Ocean, you will be treated to some of the most romantic beach views in California. No wonder the parks in Corona Del Mar are sought out for weddings and romantic proposals.

Besides being romantic, locals love their baby dogs (you will see many visitors to the parks calling their dog "baby") so you will be glad to know that if you love your baby, you are in good company in dog friendly Corona Del Mar.

Corona Del Mar

It is curious, but streets of Corona Del Mar are named after flowers, and run in alphabetical order from Acacia to Poppy, each lined with a different variety of trees. Beautiful flower gardens on each street display the flower from which the street is named.

And the ultimate flower gardens in the city reside in the Sherman Library & Gardens, the prize attraction of Corona Del Mar, open to the public. Wander the grounds to enjoy several fountains and an indoor koi pond with colorful fish. The Sherman Library and Gardens offer lush and well-maintained gardens with profuse orchids, a koi pond and something very special, the Discovery Garden for the visually impaired. This section of the Garden features easy access and the visitors can enjoy plants chosen not for appearance, but for appeal to the senses of smell and touch. The general public loves this section of the Garden, as well. Led by volunteers and docents, educational garden programs include lectures on horticulture and arts as well as group tours.

The small research library here is home to a wealth of California historical documents and landscape paintings by early California artists. It houses over 15,000 books and pamphlets, a sizable collection of maps and photographs, more than 2,000 reels of microfilm and about 200,000 papers and documents.

There are also art galleries and unique shops running along Pacific Coast Highway in scenic Corona Del Mar.

Corona del Mar offers beautiful sand beach and coves that look like they come right out of a movie set. You actually may have seen these beaches in movie and television productions such as “Gilligan's Island” and current productions from Disney. On the hills above the beaches stand houses and windy roads and a look out point to enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and bay.

At the foot of rocky cliffs lies Corona Del Mar State Beach which is a popular place for swimmers, surfers and divers. Children especially love the tide pools at Little Corona Beach, also featuring volleyball courts and restrooms.

Corona Del Mar Restaurant

Corona Del Mar boats stunningly beautiful ocean views, one of the most picturesque in all of California. Inspiration Point offers views of the Newport Bay and Catalina Island. The location includes a cove below which has been used in the opening of “Gilligan's Island” and other film projects. There is a public beach here with a bronze sculpture of a Sea Lion and her baby.

Enjoy gorgeous views from Lookout Point which sits right above the beach. It is the place where locals love to throw sunset cocktail parties. Stairs lead to Pirate’s Cove which has a great beach with calm clear waters as well.

Corona Del Mar offers great opportunities for gourmet dining. One of the finest restaurants of Corona Del Mar, Five Crowns Restaurant, is located along the city's primary artery, Pacific Coast Highway. Open since 1935, it has been a residence and an inn, it has been forsaken and neglected, and now operates as a popular, fine restaurant where prime rib is absolutely out of this world delicious. This restaurant is probably the best in Southern California.
