What are some of your priorities when deciding on a day out at the beach? If gorgeous beaches, convenient location, and stress-free parking facilities number high among them, then Newport Beach, CA is hard to beat. Once you’ve chosen your favorite new or used vehicle or if you’ve just had your vehicle serviced at Irvine Auto Center, making your way to Newport Beach, CA for a well-deserved relaxing treat is a breeze. Make a day out in the sun, sand and surf memorable with these Newport Beach tips.


Easy Access to Newport Beach Parking

Visitors to Newport Beach can delight in the multiple parking options available: numerous city parking lots, metered parking, and on-street parking facilities. When it comes to parking meters, keep in mind that hours of operation are subject to change and are usually noted on signage, at the pay station or on the meter head. Typical payment requirements are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day even on weekends and holidays.

Disabled patrons are given concessions provided they display an authorized placard – they can park for free at all meter and pay stations apart from Corona del Mar (no discount available) and Balboa Pier (50% discount applies).

Like all successful trips, even a day out at the beach requires some thought and planning. Here are a few invaluable general beach trip hacks to bear in mind:


Important Items to Take with You on a Trip to the Beach

  • • A mesh tote bag is handy in carrying all that you need at the beach without them being covered in sand at the end of the day.
  • • Remember a medical aid kit with important prescription medication, asthma inhalers, plenty of sunscreen, etc.
  • • Flip flops or water shoes are a good idea for the water or stony shores.
  • • If you have young children with you, washable toys, disposable plastic bags, and their favorite treats will keep them and you in good spirits.


Be Cognizant of these Beach Safety Tips

While having fun is the number one priority at the beach, keeping these tips in mind will go a long way to ensuring your safety:

  • • Always swim under the watchful eye of a lifeguard.
  • • Avoid swimming alone and never swim while intoxicated.

  • • Keep your surfboard or body board leashed.
  • • Don’t dive from a pier or jetty.
