More About The Peninsula
The Peninsula is a small section of Long Beach California between Naples island and the bay. It's called the Peninsula but it actually is a Peninsula, often referred to as the Alamitos Peninsula. It's primarily residential and home to a marina at the end of the Peninsula. There's a second marina on the Alamitos Bay side called the Bay Shore Walk Marina.
This Long Beach hidden treasure is something that a lot of people know about. This unique neighborhood features some of the best beachfront and waterfront properties in Long Beach. You won't have to deal with the traffic and hustle and bustle of other beach neighborhoods as most of the traffic is from locals. It offers many spots perfect for paddle boarding, fishing, kite surfing, and other beach activities. This mile-long stretch of land extends off of Belmont Shore between Seal Beach, Naples, and the Alamitos Bay Landing Channel in the San Gabriel River.
The Bayside or the northern side of the Peninsula is a perfect spot for kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. It offers protected, calm waters with the rock jetty at the southernmost end perfect for fishing and boat watching. It's also home to a small park and the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club.
While most of the Peninsula is residential, you will find a few local spots such as the Vibes Café, one of the peninsula's only restaurants. This local beach café features house-made ceviche, hummus sampler, delicious breakfast such as Chilaquiles and their blue agave bowl, a portobello sandwich, breakfast pizza, and some fantastic tacos. This café is located just outside of the Bay Shore Walk Marina, seconds from the beach and Bay shore walk.
The main street runs from 55th Pl. down to 72nd Pl. on Ocean Boulevard with one access point to the Peninsula. There's a long pedestrian walkway called the Bayside Walk, which runs nearly the full length. It connects with the Seaside Walk Boardwalk, built in the 1920s and makes an ideal loop for those looking for a little exercise every day. There are approximately 1500 residents that live on the Peninsula
Is life on the Peninsula for you? The area has some of the most impressive beachfront property in the city with both bayfront and oceanfront access and views. The neighborhood is generally peaceful and quiet and there is a tight sense of community among the residents and neighbors. So much so that they have little connective events such as book exchange, where many neighbors and residents swap books right outside their home.
Home prices can vary but typically start at about $700,000. There are several segments along the Peninsula from 55th to 61st St., 63rd to 69th Pl., and 69th to 72nd.
Residents are just minutes away from the shops and restaurants of 2nd St. in Belmont Shore. This small beach town has all the conveniences of residential life yet just minutes to more upscale and expansive amenities and services. About 60% of residents rent their homes with the median rent of about $1700 and about 40% own their homes with the median home value of $1.5 million.
Residents are part of the Boundary County school district #101 and are assigned to the Naples elementary school, the Rogers middle school, and the Wilson high school. The Naples elementary school receives a 10 of 10 by great schools.org and is less than a mile away from most homes on the Peninsula.
The Peninsula is a wonderful place to call home, but don't take my word for it, here's what others say about life on the Peninsula:
"I live in an area called the Peninsula in Long Beach California. We face the ocean. It is a quiet, residential beach community, with single-family and multifamily apartments. We have a historic boardwalk right outside our door. Many people walk their dogs,ride bikes,jog, stand up Paddle, kayak in our bay and ocean.I moved here 13 years ago from Austin, Texas. I lived back east in New England and Los Angeles, Ca. Log Beach is my favorite by far! This a a growing dynamic city that cares about its community. People here get involved with charities want to give back. Like most big cities we have our crime and gangs, but I feel that there is a collective push to help people here and make it a great quality of life." - Niche.com
