‪Nice place to stop. Ion street parking for the most part. Quick walk to the sand for great ocean views but even better views of the houses and cliffs of surrounding Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar. there were life guard stations and plenty of space for fun. The day we were there the waves were calm but we were told some days there are tremendous waves.‬

‪On the May 2022 visit, the waves didn't amount to much and the 15th street area, near Newport Pier was actually better. I did have the opportunity to visit in early June 2021 and had the good luck of 10 foot days, a spectacle of skilled bodyboarding, surfing, bodysurfing, and unfortunately one serious injury, a broken leg, just above the ankle. It's worth walking down from farther north partly to inspect the very affluent neighborhood and its tiny gardens.‬

‪Where to start... I have been coming to this place for over 20 years. It is my church. What does the uninitiated need to know? The surf is powerful and dangerous. Physical ability combined with superior wave knowledge and selection are what's needed to be even remotely successful here. The crowd is intense and often filled with visiting pro surfers and bodyboarders. It is one of the few big waves that is regularly surfed by bodysurfers and they are some of the best in the world. If you do not know what you are doing dont go in. If you dont know what you are doing and you even try to get in the water a lifeguard will politely tell you not to.

As for the beach, it is absolutely beautiful. The water is often clear. The boats coming out of the harbor are picturesque. Because it is at the end of the peninsula, it is often relatively uncrowded on the beach. There is even quite a bit of wildlife in the area. I saw a whale in the lineup once! The jetty also makes for a nice walk and the water is clear enough to see garibaldi and other fish from the rocks.

What to know:

There are NO bathrooms. None. It's tucked away in a residential area so its pretty isolated in that regard.

Street parking only. No parking lots. So you may have to walk a little bit.

It is a summer break. Waves typically start in April go through the summer months and end in late october. The late swells of the season can be absolutely beautiful.

Black Ball: From May to October bodysurfing only from 10AM-5PM. But dont let that stop you. The bodysurfing is unbelievable here. A truly noble sport.‬

‪World Famous Wedge is a California coastal classic, and looking like a thrill seeker postcard on most days. No longer a secret, the area is swarmed with visitors and parking can be tough. ‬

‪I made my firs visit recently (I'm from Florida) on a green-flag day at the lifeguard stands (gentle conditions). A bunch of kids were in the water enjoying the mostly 2-3 foot waves with occasional 4-5 foot outbursts. A few weeks earlier, there had been a memorable spell of waves July 3-5. There are splendid videos at YouTube.

There is no parking lot nearby, but parallel parking on the nearby residential streets, except on street-cleaning days. Time of visit matters: The Wedge is open to surfboards and bodyboards before 10 am and after 5 am in the summer; bodysurfing and swimming only, from 10 to 5. This is where bodysurfing was more or less invented on the US mainland, using swim fins. In turn, at least two brands of surfing/lifeguard swim fins were invented at or near Newport Beach.

Main reasons for visiting the spot are the impressive jetty (and the boats coming and going) and the waves near the jetty. Even on a small day, they tend to smash rather directly on the beach, unlike the waves at Newport Pier (the Point), a much better place for casual beach visitors to be in the water. Waves bounce off he jetty, creating unusual patterns that surfers of various sorts can ride. The waves also create large rip currents on large-wave days that allow experienced users to get out beyond the surf. The big rips (here and also elsewhere in the area) have led to the distinctively Californian system of using lifeguard boats to pick up rescued swimmers (rather than attempting to return them directly to the beach) and taking them to safer points to return to the beach or, occasionally, to the harbor.

It can be worthwhile to check Surfline, the online beach camera and surf prediction service, before visiting. Conditions vary wildly and large waves can happen here on days when nearby beaches are not nearly so large.

Note that extremely big days bring out crowds. It can be worthwhile to show up before dawn.‬

‪As nice as it is to see it isn't somewhere to spend too long with when you have small children. Ours like going in the water but the waves were just too strong and big down here so we didn't stay long. Nice to visit though on a quiet week day afternoon when there really weren't many other people around.‬
