With its scenic beaches and yacht harbor, limitless opportunities for recreation and entertainment, and world class shopping and dining, Newport Beach draws visitors from around the globe during all seasons, but especially in summer. A season which, in Newport Beach, seems endless, thanks to near-perfect weather year round.

Here are a few of our favorite ways to celebrate an endless summer in Newport Beach.


 There’s nothing quite like a concert under the stars in Newport Beach, which attracts top talent to perform some great shows every season.

Bank of the West/BNP Paribas Summer Concert Series

This time-honored Newport Beach tradition runs through October 6, 2017 and features incredible music paired with fine wine and food at the intimate Back Bay Amphitheatre of the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach.

On the Water

The Newport Beach lifestyle centers on our access to the water, whether it’s walking or surfing our miles of white sand beaches or cruising Newport Harbor. Thanks to our idyllic weather, you can enjoy a day or evening on the water year-round here.

Duffy Boats

There’s nothing quite like cruising in an electric Duffy boat around Newport Harbor, and especially at sunset. These easy-to-navigate boats are a unique way to see and enjoy views of Newport Beach from the water and they are truly one of Newport’s oldest and beloved traditions. Visit for more information.

Pirate Coast Paddle Company

Stand-up Paddling (SUP) is a fun way to explore Newport Beach’s scenic waterways, from the Back Bay to the Harbor to the canals and the outskirts of our residential islands. Pirate Coast Paddle Company offers tours, instruction and rentals of SUP boards and kayaks. They even offer a nighttime paddle when there’s a full moon. For more information, visit
