The National Resource Defense Council (NRDC), named Newport Beach, California one of 35 superstar beaches in the United States, earning the only title in the entire state of California.    

The NRDC ( issues an Annual Beach Report Card Testing the Waters: A Guide to Water Quality at Vacation Beaches revealing the cleanest and contaminated vacation beaches and lakes in America. This year, the report found 35 superstar beaches, out of the 3,500 destination water samples collected. Each beach met national water quality benchmarking at 98% of the tie over the past five years.
