Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina is a family-friendly luxury motorcoach destination that has been operating in Orange County for more than sixty years. It offers waterfront motorcoach plots, beautiful vacation cottages, a marina with 442 boat slips, bike and watercraft rentals, and a swimming lagoon, not to mention breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The site’s mission is to deliver a diverse and welcoming atmosphere so that friends, families, and members of the community can create “amazing memories.”
In this post, we explore some of the top things to do at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina. Here’s our shortlist.
Take a Trip to Moe B’s Munchies
Unlike most luxury motorcoach resorts, Newport Dunes provides its own in-house eatery: Moe B’s Munchies. This beachfront bar and grill serve freshly-made, all-American hamburgers, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, and decadent 14-inch pizza pies. There are special dietary options, too. For instance, vegetarians can chow down on the joint’s homemade veggie burgers, featuring plant-based patties, and lettuce, tomato, and onion garnish. And vegans can munch on salads and fries.
Moe B’s Munchies also serves a range of signature cocktails for those looking for something more substantial to drink. Options include Cadillac Margarita, Mai Tai, Moe’s Mary, and Mimosa. You can also enjoy the house wine, a range of imported beers and hard seltzer.
Stay Cool in a Beachfront Cabana
For those looking to get out of the sun, Newport Dunes offers all-day beachside cabana rentals. These let guests relax with their loved ones from dawn until dusk. Rental time begins at 9 am and finishes at 6 pm, except for July 4th celebrations, where rentals continue until 10 pm.
Each cabana comes with space for up to six people and is equipped with traditional wooden sun loungers. Moe B’s Munchies snack bar is just a few yards away, making it easy to stay well-fed throughout the day.
Rent Water Sports Equipment
Newport Dunes offers a wide range of watersport rentals for guests catering to every taste. Take a pedal boat out into the lagoon with your children or get a double kayak rental for up to four hours to explore the bay and beyond. Other options include stand-up paddle boarding, Duffy boat rentals, and “Radiant Rides,” which are stand-up paddleboards with funky LED lighting for nighttime fun.
All rental options come with complimentary life jackets. Always check the minimum person count. You may have to join forces with another family or group before taking part in certain activities.
Take the Family to Movie Night
Forget about car-battery-consuming drive-in movie theatres, Newport Dunes offers its own cinema experience, right on the beach. All films are complimentary and family-friendly, so they’re perfect for both parents and kids. Just take drinks and popcorn with you, and you’re all set for a thrilling blockbuster experience.
Newport Dunes regularly updates its movie schedule, so you’ll want to check the schedule on its website in advance. New films show every night and include classics like Cars, Kung Fu Panda, Night at the Museum, Ice Age, Shrek, Matilda, and Zootopia. All films are either rated G or PG.
Take a Cruise on the Bay
Newport Dunes’ bay is the perfect destination for relaxing cruises. The geography of the waterway means that there are no waves, even at high tide, giving you almost a Dead Sea level of tranquility.
Duffy boat rentals let you explore the local area and have a picnic with the family at the same time. The 21-foot electric skiffs offer space for up to eight people and are available to rent for up to 4 hours. Children under the age of 13 must wear a life jacket and you must remain within the buoy-marked routes.
Spend an Afternoon Relaxing by the Pool
If you head on over to The Resort Pool Complex at Newport Dunes, you’ll find more than just a place to swim. You’ll discover four unique pools, offering experiences for every type of swimmer. The 1,650-square-foot heated lap pool, for instance, is the perfect venue to get some exercise. You might also check out the much smaller 200-square-foot wading pool for babies and toddlers or the two spas with massage jets to soothe sore bodies after long hikes.
Just as at the beachfront, you can rent cabanas to enhance your experience. And you can enjoy free WiFi and poolside dining, courtesy of Moe B’s Munchies.
Visit the Inflatable Water Park
Those looking for an activity-filled day might want to head on over to Newport Beach’s inflatable water park. Here both adults and kids can indulge in non-stop fun on inflatable water slides, climbing walls, and platforms. Life jackets are mandatory, and children under the age of 8 require supervision by a parent or guardian over the age of 18.
Visit the Resort Marketplace
Newport Dunes is proud to host the Resort Marketplace, a mini market selling an assortment of groceries, RV supplies, souvenirs, and more. It’s the perfect place to stock up on ingredients for cooking up a feast back at your motorcoach. Open seven days a week and close to the main office, it’s convenient too.
Take Part in Fire Pit Evenings
Lastly, there’s nothing like Newport Dunes’ firepit evening to help you connect with your family and other guests at the resort. The destination rents out fire pits on a first come, first-serve basis, delivering pits to your campsite. You can then light a fire on the beach, roast some s’mores, and chat late into the evening.
