The water at Newport Beach is frequently monitored, making it the perfect beach for aquatic sport activities. According to The Orange County Register, the beach “was the only one in California to make it on the Natural Resources Defense Council’s beach superstar list for the environmental nonprofit’s 24th annual beach report card.” In addition, Newport Beach didn’t exceed bacteria levels once over the course of 50 tests.
