Corona del Mar State Beach, Orange County

Corona del Mar State Beach, Orange County

One of my favorite things to do in Orange County is to watch the sunset from the boardwalk that overlooks Corona del Mar Beach Park.

Alec and I love to stroll all around Ocean Boulevard, from the intersection with Bayview Drive down until Poppy Avenue. The view is calming, relaxing, peaceful and it’s a great way to end a day and detach from the hustle and bustle of Orange County (can’t say I’m in love with California traffic :/)

Since the very first time I have been here, I have always felt like the area around the boardwalk in Corona del Mar is a little oasis of tranquillity. It’s far enough from the trafficked Pacific Coast Highway that you can actually enjoy the sound of silence. The only interruptions are the waves and the seagulls.

Also, there’s something calming about surrounding yourself with beauty; and in Corona del Mar, especially in the blocks around State Beach, everything looks absolutely perfect.

Every single (million dollar) home is absolutely spotless. Each garden showcases so many varietals of flowers that it would be hard to see them all in a green house. Even the sidewalks are absolutely pristine, with the grass perfectly cut and little flowery bushes wonderfully kept.

If we get there in the afternoon, we like to stop for a green juice at “Nektar” (2801 East Coast Hwy, Corona del Mar, CA) and if we get hungry after watching sunset we love to walk to “Mayur”, an amazing Indian restaurants that’s just a couple block away from State Beach (2931 East Coast Hwy, Newport Beach, CA).
