Actually, the views from Crystal Cove shopping center across from the state park are superior and closer to the ones from Fashion Island. Google up Maestro's Ocean Club or Javier's Restaurant. There is even a public seating area / view station in front of Trader Joe's from which to sit in the chairs and take in the view.

Hunh? All of Ocean Blvd in Corona del Mar is accessible and there are nice lookouts like Lookout Point and Inspiration Point.

Newport Coast isn't above Fashion Island, it is south of it. Harbor View Hills and Spyglass Hill are above Fashion Island.
