Balboa Peninsula Location & Directions

Balboa Peninsula is connected to the mainland at its western end and is accessible off Highway 1 (the Pacific Coast Highway) at Balboa Boulevard, and via a short bridge at Newport Boulevard. 

There are a number of smaller masses that connect off the peninsula: Newport Island, Lido Island, Lido Peninsula, and Bay Island. Balboa Peninsula itself is almost 4 miles across, end-to-end. Almost the entire Pacific front of the peninsula has more than 500 feet of beach between the homes and the sea.

At the center of Balboa Peninsula is Balboa Village, while the eastern end of the peninsula is known as Balboa Peninsula Point.  

Balboa Peninsula is connected to Balboa Island by a number of private ferry lines. The trip between the two is very short, as Balboa Island is located only 800 feet from Balboa Peninsula.

Balboa Peninsula History

Balboa Peninsula was named after the Spanish explorer, Vasco Núñez de Balboa.

In 1888, the McFadden family built McFadden's Wharf on the peninsula to improve their shipping business. After shifts in the local shipping economy, James McFadden sold part of the peninsula in 1902. The area was purchased by William Collins, with the intention to develop it as a recreational area.

There are still a number of historic buildings from the early 1900s on the peninsula, including the Balboa Pavilion, Balboa Theater, and Balboa Inn.
