Welcome to Shore Cliffs

A secluded tree-lined sanctum surrounded by gated beaches and breathtaking bluffs

Shore Cliffs is considered to be one of the quietest and most private neighborhoods in Southern California. This beachside community is highly-coveted and exclusive because of its relaxing and stunning scenery. While the community is not gated, residents cherish that this quaint enclave is off the beaten path and away from tourists who are drawn to this gorgeous area. Its warm and welcoming streets are peaceful and stunning, hugged on either side by magical canyons and the brilliant blue waters of the Pacific Ocean below. Close to Downtown Corona del Mar with easy access to things to do in the area, the community is highly sought-after. Shore Cliffs is characterized by single-family residences, ranging from beautiful beach houses and vintage ranch homes to classic Mediterranean and contemporary dwellings. The colors of these homes complement the soft and sunny setting, and some estates even offer unobstructed ocean views.
