Welcome to Huntington Harbour
A quiet, family-oriented Pacific coast boat community
Huntington Harbour is an upscale waterfront community in the city of Huntington Beach. The neighborhood includes a harbor, marina, yacht club, and beach. It is situated along the Pacific Ocean just south of Seal Beach and on the north end of Huntington Beach, only 15 minutes away from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Huntington Harbour was built in the 1970s with Mediterranean-style architecture. Today, you will find every example of architectural style here, from spacious mansions to historic cottages, which lends to the community’s charm and character. Residents enjoy beautiful waterfront views as most homes are built on either one of the five artificial islands – Davenport
, Gilbert, Admiralty, and Sunset, along the navigable canals that separate them or on the coastline itself. If you are looking not only for a place to call home but a home for your yacht, this is the place for you!
The town has an equestrian center, several golf courses, and gated communities such as Bella Terra. There are also many parks within the town limits, including Lakeview Park, which offers basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball fields, and volleyball courts; Huntington Central Park; Portola Park; Pacifica Park; and Victoria Park.
What to Love
The neighborhood is bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Huntington Harbour Yacht Club to the north, and the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve to the east. The streets of Huntington Harbour are home to many luxury homes and some smaller "cottages" built in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
The dining and restaurant scene in Huntington Harbour is surprisingly vast and offers something for everyone in such a private community. Among the favorites is Captain Jack’s
, a seafood restaurant with an extensive menu from burgers to lobster. They are open for dinner only and located at the harbor's end across from the harbor master's office. Fish Camp
is a local favorite for fresh seafood and cocktails. A restaurant that combines a focus on local ingredients with innovative dishes from cultures around the world is Red Table
, located in The Marina Shores Shopping Center. Buon Gusto
has been serving classic Italian favorites since 1982. But really, nothing can beat the Dakine or Tri-Tip Burger at The Pocket Burger Shack, a fantastic hole-in-the-wall eatery on PCH after a morning spent paddleboarding or kayaking in the harbor!
Even residents of Huntington Harbour need to run errands and do some shopping now and then. South Coast Plaza
is a high-end mall near Costa Mesa, just north of the Harbor, where residents can find shops like Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. The town also has small shopping centers a short drive away with local favorites such as Trader Joe's, Whole Foods Market, and REI.
Things to Do
The Huntington Harbour community is a wonderful place to live. Besides boating and watersports (think everything from parasailing to skimboarding to windsurfing) the area offers a wide range of things to do and places to go, as well as being home to a number of great events.

, located at the harbor's north end, and travels south along the coast.
