Family vacation time on Balboa Island

Family fun on Balboa Island

Balboa Island is located in Orange County’s Newport Harbor close to Newport Beach, CA. Balboa Island is a man made Island.  The island is 1¾ miles around., so plan for a lot of walking as parking is at a premium.

Do not miss

  • Walking on main street, browsing the shops.
  • Walking around the island and taking the Balboa Island Ferry to Balboa Peninsula.
  • Going on a harbor cruise around Newport Harbor.

Photo recap

Plenty of private and public docks surround the island.

Water toys are plentiful: kayaks, boats, and surfboards.
