Newport Harbor and Lido Isle
For this Friday’s “Living in Newport Beach” photo, I decided to feature a view of the Newport Harbor.
The bridge in the picture leads to Lido Isle, 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.
