Huntington Harbor is a community of about 3500 people located in northern Huntington Beach. Huntington Harbor is a residential development consisting of five manmade islands with waterways varying from 15 to 20 feet in depth, used for boating. The five manmade islands in Huntington Harbor include: Admiralty, Davenport, Gilbert, Humboldt, and Trinidad. Along with the rest of coastal southern California, Huntington Harbor offers a pleasurable Mediterranean climate with mild winters and summers.
Why It’s Appealing:
Huntington Harbor has a wonderfully exclusive feeling, being bracketed in from the north by the Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach and from the south by the 1200 acre BolsaChica Ecological Reserve. This posh beach area offers the pleasures of waterfront living and all that affords including boat moorings at residences, stand up paddle-boarding, kayaking, surfing, rowing, swimming or just enjoying the sun and sand. Because of the general shallowness of the Huntington Harbor waterways as opposed to the open ocean, the water tends to be 3-4 degrees warmer than that of the ocean, making it a more desirable location for swimming and watersports. This community has multiple “mother’s beaches” where children and swimmers can enjoy the shallower, protected waters andwhere boat traffic is limited to a 5 mph no-wake. During December, a holiday boat parade takes place through the waterways. Also during this time the “Cruise of Lights” occurs in which tour boats go around the channels viewing the decorated homes as a fundraiser. Most of the homes in Huntington Harbor were built in the 1960’s to late 1970’s and feature three to six bedrooms that range from 2,090 to 6,739 square feet of living space. Although Huntington Harbor is primarily residential, with home prices varying from one million to multi-million dollar homes, there is a shopping center on Algonquin Street called the Huntington Harbor Mall. This mall features a Trader Joe’s grocery store as well as two banks, a medical center, a UPS store, and several restaurants including Rita’s Italian Ice, the HarbourRackhouse Bar & Grill, Red Table Restaurant, VegiLicious Vegan Restaurant, A Slice of New York, and AoSA Coffee. On PCH there is a lively and fun little fish market and restaurant called Fish Camp, which is almost always busy. Huntington Harbor offers exceptional homes and the lifestyle to accompany them. It’slike being on vacation all year round.
