Located in the heart of Newport Harbor, Balboa Island, known to locals as "The Island," is widely known as one of the best places to live and visit. This one-of-a-kind, man-made gem is comprised of three islands: Big Island, Little Island, and Collins Island. The picturesque Newport Bay encompasses these three islands. The Big Island and Little Island are surrounded by a paved walking path and are divided by the Grand Canal. You can access the Island by the two-lane bridge on the northeast and by the Balboa Island Ferry that consists of a fleet of three, three-car ferryboats, which provides access across the harbor to the Balboa Peninsula that lies to the south. Balboa Island has a 2.5 mile perimeter and is densely populated with approximately 3,000 residents.
The Island offers a multitude of luxury real estate properties, dining, shopping and scenic views in an ambience not easily found anywhere along the coast. Marine Avenue is where you will find an alluring mix of charming restaurants, private galleries, and attractive coastal stores. Balboa Island's frozen treats, the Frozen Banana and Balboa Bar, are the perfect treat while cruising down Marine Avenue checking out the shops or walking around the island's perimeter. Bayfront provides both locals and visitors a front row seat to the most festive events including: Balboa Island Art Walk, Balboa Island Parade, Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, and more. Balboa Island is the place where luxury meets relaxation.
What once was a mudflat surrounded by marshland, Balboa Island is home to some of the finest real estate properties in the nation. W.S. Collins, who developed the area, was rumored to have sold original lots for as little as $25.00! The prices of homes now are significantly more. Whether you're in search of a vintage cottage, a fantastic Cape Cod, a spectacular Mediterranean, or a beautiful Bayfront, the Island offers a variety of real estate choices to fit your lifestyle.
