Breathtaking Views, Gorgeous Blue Ocean and Gently Crashing Waves
July 25, 2014
With breathtaking views, gorgeous blue ocean and gently crashing waves, Corona Del Mar(CDM) state beach is quintessentially Southern California. Known by the locals as Big Corona, CDM is a hidden gem. The half-mile long soft white sandy beach is framed by cliffs and a rock jetty that forms the east entrance to Newport Harbor. The sandy beach and coves look like they came right out of a movie set. You may have seen the stunning beach in Disney movies and television shows such as Gilligan’s Island. On the hills above the beach stand multi-million dollar mansions, windy roads and a lookout point to enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and bay. The sunsets are simply incredible, so bring your camera, a picnic and enjoy!
Only a 20 minute drive from Vacation Homes Orange County, CDM is a great family beach and a popular place for swimmers, surfers,divers, volleyball players and sunbathers. Bonfire pits are just the added icing on the cake, so come early, stay late and enjoy a smoar’s watching the blue skies turn orange as the sun sets over the beautiful Pacific. Who knows, you might get lucky and spot a seal or a dolphin not too far from the shore. Remember to bring the beach chairs, umbrella, towels, sand toys and coolers provided at each of our vacation homes.
