Scenic spot
Feb 2021 • Couples
Not hard to find and was surprised how easy we were able to find parking. Great views of the ocean jetty and marina. One man tried to convince me his 14 year old golden was not a dog at all but a Coyote.

Gorgeous!!!

Oh my goodness! So beautiful! Bring a towel wether or not you bring a swimsuit. There’s plenty of places to get your feet in the water and it’s ridiculously hard to resist.

Come watch the sunset
Feb 2020
Join the crowds watching the sunset each evening. Bring a blanket and a picnic, the neighbors and their gazillion dollar homes got nothing on you!

Aptly named

What a fantastic view. There are benches on top of the bluff and a steep concrete path down to benches about half way down and then the path continues to the beach. We sat at the different levels for a while and enjoyed our time. Great views of the beach, the entrance to the harbor and Catalina. We were there in the winter so there was plenty of free street parking.

Highly recommended
Jan 2020
We were delighted to see that this small promontory was reserved for the public, and we felt it was tastefully designed with a curving "vanishing" walkway leading down to the viewing area where there are teakwood benches facing the sea. The viewing area is romantic, so weddings are held there. The shape of the viewing area suggests the bow of a small boat facing the activity on the beach and channel to the Newport Beach harbor, but we felt that the view to the south was the most captivating because of the shapes of the cliff and rugged rocks in and near the water, especially just before sunset.

Beautiful view on ocean ave in CDM.

If you are old enough to remember Gilligan's Island this is where they filmed the SS Minnow heading out to sea. Lots of dog walkers an local regulars. Friendly vibe and great sunsets. You can walk to Big or Little Corona Beach from here.

Best vantage point to watch Sunsets
Sep 2019
I have been going there since 1991 to watch Sunsets. The place is quiet and gives you incredible views of the sunset. Every now and then you will spot a Seal or a Dolphin playing in the waves.

Great Spot to sit and relax
Aug 2019
We have been here a few times. We usually arrive late morning with a coffee in hand. The point overlooks Newport Harbor and the Corona Del Mar beaches. There is free on street parking. We have met a few very friendly residents, offering some nice conversation and some points of history about the area. The point is beautifully landscaped and well maintained.
