Balboa Island is truly a one-of-a-kind, man-made treasure, accessible by car, foot, bike, or ferry. The Balboa Island Ferry will take you to & from the island’s restaurants and coastal shops. Some of the storefronts include coastal nautical shops, art studios, and jewelry stores. There’s plenty of variety when it comes to food offered on the island, ranging from local fresh seafood to authentic Italian, Mexican and American contemporary style as well. The neighborhood’s favorite dessert options are world famous Balboa Bar and Frozen Banana, which can be found at Dad’s or Sugar ‘n’ Spice, both serving locals every day for over 75 years. With 1, 648 beach cottages, custom homes and duplexes and a not-to-miss annual parade in late June (and after-party,) the history runs deep on Balboa Island, so when visiting be sure to stop by the Balboa Island Museum to learn more about the unique story of this legendary island.
