Newport Beach Shoppers Paradise

Newport Beach Shoppers Paradise

Although the area of Newport Beach is known for

the harbor and love of the water, it also contains

a hidden shoppers paradise. With the infamous

Fashion Island and Balboa Island nearby, Newport

does wonders for those who like activities yet

enjoy shopping.

Fashion Island is one of the best areas of Newport

Beach, containing over 200 stores. The Island

has everything you could ever want, from toys to

expensive clothes. If you’ve ever tried Fashion

Island before, you’re probably aware of just how

great it can be. With over 200 stores, it’ll take

hours and hours to explore everything here – and

possibly even days.

If you happen to be looking for an inexpensive, yet

excellent experience, Balboa Island is where you

should be going. The Island is accessible from

Palm Street by ferry at the Balboa Peninsula, or

by car/foot from Jamboree Road at the Pacific Coast

Highway.

With its great location and environment, the

community is home to more than 80 galleries, gift

shops, and fine restaurants. All along the streets

on the island, you can find locals selling great

merchandise, along with vendors selling superb

sweets and hot eats.

When walking on foot on the island, you’ll notice

that there are wonderful views of the extravagent

homes, harbor, and even the bay. Passing the street

signs, you may notice that they are indeed named

after precious stones, which is quite different.

Once you pass Turquoise, Topax, Diamond, and Sapphire,

you’ll reach the popular Marine Avenue, which is

where shoppers will fall in love. With unique and

attractive gift shops and sidewalk cafes, it’s easy

to spend hours here looking at everything you can

purchase.

The heart of the Balboa Island’s shopping and apparel

district, Marine Avenue has many unique boutiques

and galleries as well. If hunger strikes, you can

lose yourself in the tastefully impressive Balboa Bar,

a bar made of vanilla ice cream that is dipped in

chocolate.

With restaurants on the Avenue as well, you can enjoy

everything from a simple meal to some of the best

Italian food in Newport Beach. Offering you plenty of

things to see as well, Balboa Island gives you more

than just shopping – although the shopping here is

something you must experience.

If you enjoy shopping and seeing beautiful views,

Newport Beach is truly the shopping paradise you’ve

been longing for. As a family vacation, Balboa Island

and the surrounding areas can provide everything you

need for fun and entertainment. For shopping lovers

everywhere, Newport Beach provides the type of

shopping you won’t find anywhere else.
