Balboa Pier In Newport Beach

Balboa Pier In Newport Beach

A pier can be one of the most romantic places to

go in the world. If you doubt that, take a trip to

the Balboa Pier in Newport Beach and you’ll see

first hand just how great a pier can be. On any

given summer night, this pier is enveloped in

darkness by 10 PM.

While the average fisherman heads home when the

pier is dark, life continues. All along the pier,

darkness does nothing but add to the atmosphere.

Towards the end of the pier, you can see the neon

lights of Ruby’s Diner lighting up the sky, calling

out to those on the pier.

Walking along the pier you can see many different

lights illuminating the sky. The Balboa Pavilion can

be seen as well, adding to the already magical time

that the lights help to add to the pier.

In many ways, the Balboa Pavilion is a sister attraction

to the pier. They were both built in 1906 and designed

to attract people to the Newport area. Even in those

times, the pier and the pavilion helped to bring

travelers to the area.

Down the peninsula from the pier, the area has a

feeling that rivals days gone by. For fishermen and

those that enjoy fishing, the Balboa Pier is simply

heaven on earth.

Looking to the south of the pier, you’ll see the Newport

Jetty and the bay entrance. Main Street is right

around the corner, adding a wealth of things to do to

the pier.

Even though some consider fishing to be secondary on

the pier, it gives fisherman that are there more room

to fish. For many residents of the area, the pier is

where they began their life of fishing.

When standing on at the end looking down the Balboa

Pier you’ll probably be amazed. The 920 foot pier is

simply incredible to look at. Walking down it is

great any time of year, especially at night when

taking a moonlit stroll. For honeymooners or married

couples, the pier beckons out for romance.

The Balboa Pier is open from 5 AM until midnight. There

are restrooms located near the entrance, with lights

and fish cleaning stations located on the pier. At

the end of the pier, there is even a small restaurant.

Located in the city of Newport Beach, the Balboa Pier

is a must visit for anyone who loves fishing. Even if

you don’t like fishing, the pier is great to walk at

night or during the day. If you want to see what piers

are all about, make sure you check out the beauty and

splendor that the Balboa Pier will provide you with.
