Little Corona Del Mar Beach

Newport Beach, California

Little Corona is a small, secluded beach that can be accessed by steps off of Ocean Boulevard near Poppy Avenue. While narrower than the larger Corona Del Mar, it provides easy water access. Free parking is available at the top of the hill, however parking is limited. There are no restrooms or concessions at this site. There are tide pools and many opportunities to see wildlife.

Reminders: There is a 3-day rain advisory after each rain storm, use caution as bacteria levels can increase during this period. The County Environmental Health staff advises swimmers that levels of bacteria can rise significantly in ocean and bay waters adjacent to storm drains, creeks and rivers. Swimmers should avoid coastal waters impacted by discharging storm drains creeks and rivers, and beach users should avoid contact with any runoff on the beach during dry or wet weather conditions. As an extra precaution remain 500 ft away on either side from any outfalls.
