About Corona del Mar
Corona del Mar — Spanish for “Crown of the Sea” — is a community as beautiful as its name. Nestled on the foot of the San Joaquin Hills and fronting the Pacific Ocean, Corona del Mar ranges along a bluff at the south end of Newport Beach, California, and includes some of Orange County’s most prestigious residential areas.
Until the late 1920s, Corona del Mar was a tiny village, reached from the peninsula by small boat at high tide, or by a muddy dirt road that crossed over the Irvine Ranch. Today, Corona del Mar offers many landmark places to visit, as well as some of the most trendy shops and restaurants. This seaside community is conveniently located just 50 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport, 4 miles west of Orange County’s John Wayne Airport, and 70 miles north of San Diego.
The Corona del Mar coastline has it all — small private coves, cliffs and tide pools, spectacular views. Directly south is one of Orange County’s jewels — Crystal Cove State Park. Also not to be missed are the Sherman Library & Gardens, with its library devoted to the history of the Pacific Southwest and its gardens offering an extensive botanical collection ranging from rare cacti to exotic vegetation.
