Newport Harbor is a semi-artificial harbor that was formed by dredging an estuary during the early 1900s. Several artificial islands were built, which are now covered with private homes: Newport Island, Balboa Island, Little Balboa Island, Collins Island, Bay Island, Harbor Island, Lido Isle, and Linda Isle.  Newport Harbor once supported maritime industries such as boat building, ship building, and commercial fishing, but today it is used mostly for recreation. Its shores are occupied mostly by private homes and private docks.  Newport Harbor is home to approximately 9,000 boats making it one of the largest recreational boat harbors on the west coast.
