Newport Coast, with its miles of naturally preserved coastline, sophisticated dining offerings, and world class golf courses is an optimal private charter jet vacation destination. You can easily enjoy an ample array of satisfying recreational activities during your vacation here without leaving the 23 square miles of land that comprise this city’s terrain. However, should you feel like exploring beyond this town’s borders, there are some fabulous day trip options that won’t disappoint!
A favorite of locals and tourists alike is the nearby island of Santa Catalina. The island was especially favored in Hollywood’s glamour days when celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, James Cagney and many more made Catalina the preferred playground of the rich and famous.
Getting to Catalina requires advance planning. The Catalina Flyer departs from Newport Harbor daily but reservations are generally required. The ferry will have you at the island in 75 minutes. For more luxurious transportation to this Island, take a private charter jet and arrive in style.
Once you reach Catalina you will be amazed at the remote beauty of this picturesque, quaint island. Rent a golf cart and take your own personal tour. You can drive uphill to one the highest viewing points and enjoy the breathtaking scenic vista or make your way to the desolate side where bison roam freely.
Kiosks alongside the beach offer just about every aquatic activity imaginable. Waver runners, dive tours, parasailing, kayaking, fishing, and snorkeling are among the many options. Land-based activities are also offered in abundance. Golf, tennis, biking, hiking and zip lining, are some of the popular ways to enjoy your day on Catalina. Charming waterfront eateries provide an inviting reprieve when you are ready to dine or sip a cocktail before getting ready to board the late afternoon ferry back to Newport.
