Within Walking distance of Balboa Coves you will find Hoag Hospital and Mariners Mile and of course the beach.
Balboa Coves Community
Due to the small nature of the Balboa Coves community not a lot of real estate activity happens but like in many neighborhoods over the last 3 years many residents have done some large remodeling projects while the housing market recovered.
Residents of Balboa Coves will enjoy some great dining options within walking distance such as:
- Chart House
- The Winery
- China Palace
- Billys at the Beach
- A’s Restaurant
- Royal Thai
In addition the rest of the restaurants that are in the harbor are accessible by boat if you have a small enough vessel to fit under the bridge (most duffs and power boats, no sailboats) for Newport Blvd. The homeowners Association also does have a website but it is for residents only.
