21 Must-Visit Destinations at Lido Marina in Newport Beach

Seas the Day at The Cutest Spots in Newport Beach

Lido Marina has shop-goers and hungry patrons taking advantage of the marine-inspired mélange of food, fashion and fun at this seaside destination. We love that Newport Beach hot spot, Lido Marina Village, is accessible by sea so you can dock and dine by day and show off your nautical finesse at night—it’s just what the ‘doc’ ordered. Plus, their Secret Alley is just another one of Lido Marina Village’s awe-inspiring attributes. SeaVees, HanaHaus and Blue Bottle are other Lido Marina must-visit spots when exploring this nook of Newport Beach. We’ve put together a list of the top 21 reasons we love this local Orange County shopping and dining destination! What do Do Lido Marina


1 | Keepin’ It Casual Since 1964

SeaVees Newport Beach 

New to the Newport Beach neighborhood, SeaVees is the epitome of a coastal-cool California brand. This is only the shop’s second storefront location (the original is in Santa Barbara), and Lido Marina couldn’t be a more perfect place for it. Selling their classic men’s, women’s and kid’s sneakers, along with casual apparel and home goods sourced from local artisans, SeaVees is an ideal destination to shop for just about anyone on your list (including yourself). Situated on the corner of Via Lido and Via Oporto in a reclaimed 1940’s cottage, this iconic store transports you to a vintage California dream.
