A water-front community built on five man-made islands by one developer -- The Christiana Company.
A community that is unique with over 50% of homes situated on the waterfront with their own boat slip. There are four guard-gated communities within the area and several gated complexes, many with pool and tennis facilities. Over 3,500 of these residences have direct access to the Pacific Ocean. Huntington Harbour is an upbeat, energetic, upward moving community with its own organizations exclusive to residents only: Huntington Harbour Yacht Club, SeaGate Yacht Club, Philharmonic Society of Orange County, Orange County Performing Arts groups, Anglers Clubs, Garden Clubs, Huntington Harbour Newcomers, Volunteers in Multiple Sclerosis, La Familia Auxiliary supporting Orangewood Children's Home and other philanthropic groups.
Huntington Harbour is a well-maintained, upmarket community with most homes valued at over a million dollars. The majority of home owners either own their own business or are senior executives or presidents of large companies.
Over 50% own second homes in either the Palm Springs, local mountains or San Diego areas. Most residents travel extensively. Prestige and luxury automobiles are standard buys. The active social life of the community is reflected in large purchases; liquor, gifts, catering and interior decoration. There is community-wide participation during the Christmas season, with the annual Boat Parade and extensive holiday decorating. The Harbour is a boating community with small electric boats up to 100+ foot yachts in evidence; generating typical boating-related business.

Harbour Light magazine is the most widely read, effective way of reaching the high-income residents of Huntington Harbour. It is published bi-monthly and mailed to each and every home and condominium in the Harbour. The Harbour Light features highlights of events and news of the many community organizations such as the yacht clubs, the Philharmonic Society groups, garden clubs, newcomers, travel groups, and many more.
