Destination 2: Newport Beach
Newport Beach boasts the largest recreational harbour on the west coast offering an array of watersports; from fishing and swimming to sailing. Whatever draws you to the water, you'll be able to do it here. If watersports aren't your thing, visit Fashion Island for the ultimate in retail therapy, or one of the many restaurants for the gourmet cuisine.
