Ten Reasons Why The Beachcomber at Crystal Cove is the World’s Ultimate  Beach Dining Destination

Newport Beach, CA – December 20, 2016 – Tucked in the heart of the Historic District in the picturesque Crystal Cove lies the Beachcomber, emulating Southern California beach dining at its absolute finest. Offering an array of coastal inspired cuisine and classic American favorites daily, breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at this picturesque spot. There are countless qualities that set the Beachcomber apart. We identified our top ten reasons why the Beachcomber at Crystal Cove is the world’s ultimate beach dining destination.  

1.)  Classic California: Nestled within the Historic District, the Beachcomber structure is an authentic 1920s cottage original to the location. Though slightly renovated to accommodate the restaurant, the structure still pays homage to the original architecture and design elements of old world Crystal Cove, known as the “paradise of the south seas” among the movie stars who vacationed and filmed there in Hollywood’s Golden Age.

2.)  ON Sand: Boasting 180-degree ocean views with the water less than 100-feet away, if you’re not on the dining patio, you’re in the sand.

3.)  Fire Pit Rentals: Your own, personal fire pit on the sand is available to rent for parties of 12 and under. Offering S’mores and grilling packages, the Beachcomber’s fire pit rental program is unlike any other on the Newport Coast.

4.)   Beach Concierge Service: Allow the Beachcomber to act as your very own Beach concierge – rent a beach umbrella with chairs and enjoy a day on the sand without any of the hassle.

5.)  Express Shack: Catering to the family summer picnic on the beach, the Beachcomber offers a special service mid-June through Labor Day that features a menu of grilled favorites and beach snacks for on-the-sand dining.

6.)  Fresh Beignets: Nowhere else can one enjoy fresh-baked, warm beignets – a Beachcomber signature, and local favorite – served in such a stunning, open-air beach setting.

7.)  Timeless Tradition: The Beachcomber’s legendary Martini Flag raising takes place daily at 5pm or sunset, to salute a Crystal Cove Historic District Tradition and signal the start of a great evening at the Bootlegger Bar – where every night feels like Saturday night!

8.)  Bootlegger Bar: Tucked behind the main dining patio, the Bootlegger bar serves up delicious appetizers and top shelf hand crafted cocktails from classic martinis to tropical sips.

9.)  Access by Foot (or Shuttle) Only: Exclusive and limited access to the beach allows for a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of traffic, making the experience a truly secluded beach dining hideaway.

10.)  Natural Surrounding: The scenic Newport coastline offers hiking trails in the hills surrounding The Beachcomber, making for a unique mid-hike destination. The adjacent tide pools, renowned for their sea-life, are just a stroll down the beach from the restaurant and allow for an extraordinary addition to an outdoor dining adventure.
