The Back Bay is the island delta of Newport Beach, connecting Upper Newport Bay with Newport Harbor. With hiking and biking trails, it is a nature reserve to several species of birds.

The Balboa Island community is joined to the mainland by a short two-lane bridge on the northeast of Balboa Island, and a privately-operated fleet of three ferryboats that provide access across the harbor to the Balboa Peninsula in the south. The iconic scenery and perennial vacation feel makes it a favorite of residents and visitors alike.

With just eight homes, Collins Island is just off Balboa Island. All of the homes on the sequestered island have waterfront views and private docks, but are so close to Balboa Island that residents can easily take advantage of the bigger island’s amenities.
The stretch of coastline from the mid-peninsula to the world-famous Wedge, two scenic piers and a small-yacht harbor, is what many people imagine when they think of life on the beach in Southern California. Beachfront homes line one side of the Peninsula, with homes with a harbor view line the other side.

Bay Island residents enjoy a lifestyle unlike any other on the harbor. A sprawling botanical garden is the centerpiece of this exquisitely maintained island oasis with only 23 private bay front residences completely surrounded by sandy beaches. Uniquely “car-free,” residents park in a private parking structure just off the island before walking or golf-carting over to the island. Each home has a private dock with beautiful views. Because Bay Island is structured as a co-op, all Bay Island owners share in the amenities of a tennis court, the huge interior garden, a caretaker, and the off-island parking garage.

Enclosed in a bay front neighborhood, Bayshores is picturesque in its meandering streets, gorgeous gardens, private beaches, and architecturally inspired homes.
A man-made island (dredged and filled in 1896 by James McFadden, and completed in 1930) in the harbor of Newport Beach, Lido Isle boasts a bay-front view for nearly a third of the 850 homes built on the island.Lido Isle is near the beach, but a world apart. The island’s exclusive amenities include a yacht club, beaches, tennis courts, gardens and a private clubhouse overlooking the harbor.

Surrounding a private lagoon, Linda Isle features a variety of stylish homes in Newport’s only guarded-gate community of all of the waterfront residences. Most of the houses on this island are custom-built, waterfront, and have private boat docks.

In a quiet corner on the harbor, the man-made Promontory Bay—bounded by Bayside Drive on the north, and by Harbor Island Drive on the west and south—features only 62 custom homes, all on the waterfront and all featuring their own docks.
