Set directly on a stunning stretch of waterfront property, Balboa Bay Resort offers a variety of recreational activities that make us one of the top California waterfront resorts. Explore the harbor by renting one of our electric Duffy boats, which seat up to 12 people and are ideal for cruising around the bay. For a more active tour, opt for a one or two-person kayak or a paddleboard rental, and splash your way through the Newport Harbor. Balboa Bay Club Members and guests with their own boats can also arrive by sea at our guest dock.
For the ultimate water experience, take in a whale watching tour or visit Catalina Island, just an hour boat ride away. There, you can explore famous Avalon Bay, home to premier snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, fishing, and kayaking.
For water recreation within our California beach resort, guests can swim in our Olympic-size pool, surrounded by padded lounge chairs. Enjoy an early morning swim or just recline in the warm sunshine. Either way, our beachfront resort in Southern California will create lasting memories with our variety of water sport activities.
If staying in a Premier Bay Front room or suite, guests can obtain access to our exclusive Private Beach and Secluded Waterfront Olympic-size Pool complete with a kiddie pool, pool bar, spa, padded lounge chairs and spacious deck.
