Spring Break & Summer Must Do Fun at Newport Dunes #NewportDunes

Who is Ready for Spring Break ...and Summer Planning?

We are too!! My kids are asking daily... mom, when is spring break, are we off of school yet...? 

We are looking at a few options for mini outings and day play since our Spring Break is so late in the season it almost rolls into summer. 
Did you know that Newport Dunes is a 110 acre property with RV, Cabin cottages, Water Play, Water Sports and on site recreation?! 

Don't feel bad... I've lived here in OC for 39 years and I just found out how amazing this place is too!

The full season of fun opens Memorial day (open only weekends until then) and all water sports will be open daily through Labor Day.

Day Play or Stay and Play

With 10 Beach front cottages, 21 cottages total, and an RV agent on site for rentals, there's a few ways to enjoy an overnight stay or two or three or more!

There are bonfire pits throughout the beach to rent for public use too.

You can even rent a beach front one the sand canopy with tables and chairs.

Right now Newport Dunes has an awesome offer...

Buy 2 nights 3rd 50% off or 3 nights & the 4th is free! 

Water Sports...

Duffy boat registration can be done on property, owned by Newport Dunes. The Duffy boat can go to the bay, harbor but not to the open ocean. Boats must be back by dusk.

Can bring out food and pull them up to Back Bay Bistro too! 
Back Bay Bistro is delish and fresh food.. they have a Sunday brunch offered and they will bring food to the dock for pick up to your boat! 
Opens 11, happy hour starts at 3pm
Kayaks are on site too as well as Pirate Coast Paddle boards. Kyacking and paddle sports can go into open ocean... 

So much to do!!
We were told the water is calm and on rare occasion dolphins and sea lions swim into the bay. How cute is that!

Water Park ...
Have you heard... it will be double the size this year! 
Open to public so head down for some sand beach relaxing or to the water park... public pays parking fee for the day use and for extras! 

Life jackets from the dunes and a must for water park for anyone 13 and under.
Summer camps on site...

Camp James - zip lining across the bay

Also Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts can camp in tents on the sand. Ask your troop leader to find out more info. 

We can not wait to head back... I've got to bring the kids... and spend some summer time on the sand and in the water. 

I love that there are lifeguards and its pet friendly on the sand but no dogs permitted in the water. 

Newport Dunes has many events year round...

Holiday options for fun.. keep an eye out this year. Christmas is lit up all around the bay.

Easter egg hunt on site.. how fun! 

Movies on the bay - half shore, half on water and we were told that there are no sharks as the water is too stagnant but sting rays common on shore, sometimes jellies so just do the shuffle. 

Triathlons occasionally occur on site too. 

Lobster Fest - I saw photos of this last year and just about cried over missing out.

Pacific Wine & Cheese Aug 18-19 is a major event and super popular. Sells out. 

On Site Kids Fun...

Activities dept. hosts kids events throughout day. Daily during the summer. They run the movies on the beach and there is a public arcade in the summer too. 

For Resort Guests: Pool heated year round and Newport Dunes will be adding another spa.
They have everything you may need to enjoy a fun day or to spend the night with fresh ocean air and warm sun to relax on the sand with. 

Make plans now to check it out over Spring Break or Summer.... all the deets here.
