ORANGE COUNTY BEACH PHOTOS: Located on the southern coast of Newport Beach is one of its communities known as Corona del Mar. Considered one of many desirable places to live in Newport Beach, the most spectacular homes sport views of the Pacific Ocean from hilltop vistas above Corona del Mar beaches. There's hardly a bad photo taken in Corona del Mar, though one picture doesn't capture it all. The panorama from Lookout Park encompasses 180 degrees of views. Take a short journey through Corona del Mar to see and enjoy this special beach destination through photos we have taken during our visits. Though there are no hotels in Corona del Mar, there are hotels just half a mile away at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
