Corona del Mar or CdM (Spanish for “Crown of the Sea”) is a premier neighborhood Newport Beach, California. It generally consists of all land on the seaward face of the San Joaquin Hills south of Avocado Avenue to the city limits, as well as the development of Irvine Terrace, just north of Avocado. Corona del Mar is known for its fine beaches, tidepools, cliffside views and quaint village shops. Beaches in the area include Corona del Mar State Beach as well as Crystal Cove State Park south of Corona del Mar, accessible by paths winding down a steep hillside.
Offering a unique selection of shopping, restaurants, services and retail fashions, our seaside village is conveniently located just 50 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport, 4 miles west of John Wayne Airport and 70 miles north of San Diego. Streets of Corona del Mar are named after flowers, and run in alphabetical order from Acacia to Poppy, each lined with a different variety of trees. Beautiful flower gardens on each street display the flower from which the street is named. And the ultimate flower gardens in the city reside in the Sherman Library & Gardens, open to the public. Sherman Library and Gardens on Pacific Coast Highway offers tours of beautiful flower and plant gardens. There are also art galleries and unique shops running along Pacific Coast Highway in scenic Corona del Mar.
In addition to the flower streets of the Village, there is the beach-close community of Irvine Terrace with its larger lots and one story homes as well as the beach communities of Cameo Shores and Cameo Highlands Highlands, Shorecliffs, Corona Highlands, and Pelican Point. Further to the east, there are the established neighborhoods of Harbor View Hills and Spyglass Hills, which have a variety of homes and large lots.
