Beacon Bay is one of the premier bay front communities in Newport Beach with many homes located near a sandy beach that's located in this upscale neighborhood.  One thing that many don't realize is that homes in this community are under lease land.  Beacon Bay is an area that is included in the city of Newport Beach Tidelands which requires the new owner of the property to sign a 50 year lease of the land with the city.

One of the best kept secrets in Newport Beach is the bay front and ocean view community of Newport Shores.  The neighborhood is located at the base of the Santa Ana River that forms a small bay front area that is located adjacent to the Newport Shores community.  Located between the bay and the Pacific Ocean is a natural preserve wetlands area that allows for unobstructed views from select homes in this tract.  Homes that are located facing the canal rarely come on the market for sale and are typically priced close to the $2 million dollar range.
