Crystal Cove State Park features an amazing stretch of beach at the Southern most end of Newport Beach. This is a great place for the family as you can always find open places to lay your beach towels down along with easy access to nearby restrooms and restaurants. Parking fees apply here and you will either need to walk or take a shuttle down to the beach. There are several historic cottages that have been restored and may be rented out through the state park system. Crystal Cove also hosts several events throughout the year including movie nights on the beach along with fire pits.
