Balboa Island Luxury Homes
Newport Beach, California
Balboa Island is divided into three islands. There is the main island which has over 1100 homes, the Little Island which is located across the Grand Canal has over 200 homes. And Collins Island which is located of the main Island has 8 homes. The streets of Balboa Island are named after Semi-precious stones including Jade, Onyx, Sapphire, and Coral which creates more charm in the area.
A great way to visit the island is to take the Balboa Island ferry. There are three 64 foot ferries, that have the capacity to carry three automobiles. Also bicyclists and pedestrians can ride for a fee as well. The ferry drivers are very skilled, especially during the summer months when Newport Harbor can be incredibly busy with the Newport Harbor boat traffic. It is a great way to travel from the Peninsula to the Island and enjoy the beauty of the Newport Harbor on the brief journey.
Balboa Island has both bay front homes and interior homes. There is a quaint village on the main island that is located on Marine Avenue - enjoy shops, dining, and during the summer months there is an art festival. Many of the island residents travel around via golf carts. It is a great way to start the day by walking around the island, and many visitors and residents begin their day by walking or jogging around the island.
