Our Story

West Oceanfront Magazine is a publication determined to share the story of Balboa Peninsula, Newport Beach with our smart, funny and one-of-a-kind readers. As we say, “We’re not here to be boring.”

Our magazine began from the simple idea that there should be a fresh and different source for high-quality community news on Balboa Peninsula. For the headlines that aren’t written, the little tales that aren’t told, we want to provide a detailed, boots-on-the-ground approach to localized storytelling.

We seek to be more. We have to be more. The community of Balboa Peninsula demands it; the many vibrant, small businesses here deserve it. This area is defined by its local legends, its passionate entrepreneurs, by you.

So whenever you read our articles, please remember to keep us in mind for tips, information and updates. Because the stories we seek aren’t ours, they’re yours. And we’re always one email away from telling them.
