DISCOVER CORONA DEL MAR

You'll love the view from here.

You may have to pinch yourself. A place this beautiful, this warm, this vibrant feels like something out of a dream. Positioned high on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Corona del Mar is aptly named "Crown of the Sea." 

Big Corona beach invites you to luxuriate in a relaxing day by the sea, while Little Corona beckons the more adventurous to explore tide pools or snorkel. In addition, the village offers an amazing selection of boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and services to entice you with almost anything you could wish for. 

We think it's the peak of resort-style senior living, and we're pretty sure you will, too. Come join us at Crown Cove.

A Brief History of Corona del Mar

The original inhabitants of the region of the Los Angeles Basin were the Tongva Indigenous peoples, and the land that is present-day Corona del Mar subsequently passed from the Spanish colonial period to its first Anglo owner, James Irvine, in the late 1800s. Irvine developed the land as a farm but struggled with drought and other difficulties.

In 1904, the real estate developer George E. Hart purchased the land and established the community of Corona del Mar. The price for a lot at the time was $100, but takers were few and far between. The area up and down the Pacific Coast Highway finally began to grow and thrive in the late 1940s with the influx of tourists and the businesses to serve them.

In more recent years, Corona del Mar and its magnificent beaches have been the stars of numerous films, TV shows, and music videos. And it never fails to impress!
