"Spectacular View of the Bay and Sea"

Cliff Drive is a residential street that runs along the bluffs above Pacific Coast Highway in Newport Beach. On its eastern end it skirts Cliff Drive Park, a sloping expanse of green grass surrounded by large stately homes. Cliff Drive Park is beautifully landscaped and has several different vantage points for enjoying the spectacular view of Newport Bay and the ocean. Homes on the south side of the street are perched above the businesses on PCH and can enjoy the same view from their own backyards. Despite being located above Pacific Coast Highway, Cliff Drive is far enough away to escape the sounds of traffic. This part of Cliff Drive is one of the most beautiful areas in Newport Beach.

Going eastward, Cliff Drive passes by Ensign Intermediate School and the neighborhood transitions into midcentury ranch houses intermixed with newer custom rebuilds. The yards are large and well maintained and there are bike lanes on each side of the street.

Cliff Drive is about a mile and a half long. It ends at Dover Drive, adjacent to the Back Bay and its large nature preserve. Newport Harbor High School is located just a few blocks from Cliff Drive. Other attractions in the neighborhood include the restaurants and shops on Pacific Coast Highway. For medical care, Hoag Hospital is a short distance away. Fashion Island, a beautiful upscale shopping center, is also nearby.
