One of the only properties in Southern California to have a privately accessed beach cove, AERIE residents will enjoy swimming, paddle boarding, and other watersports from their own sandy beach. Since AERIE is located just inside the mouth of Newport Harbor, it enjoys year-round, pristine, clear water and plentiful sea life. Dolphins and sea lions are regularly seen playing nearby, a wonderful spectacle for the residents. The beautiful rock formations of the cove have provided an enchanting backdrop for major Hollywood productions over the past century. Some films and television shows filmed at the site include Treasure Island, Cleopatra, and Gilligan's Island.
