|Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar have some natural arches|
I'm surprised there's not more information available about the few arches that are just southeast of Corona Del Mar Beach. I stumbled across these when I was just hiking along the coast for a day. Its not much of a hike, more of a stumble across slippery and jagged rock. But as I was walking along, I found this 20ft arch that I was not expecting!

|Its a pretty good sized arch!|
Other than the arches, there are lots of opportunities for tidepooling and enjoying the coast. There are also a few caves you can poke around in. I found the area peculiar because the rugged coast is overlooked by the classic million-dollar mansions of the South Coast but its free and unrestricted to walk along the beach. Its a nice place to spend a morning or afternoon!
