17 Jun Trinidad Island Community of Huntington Beach
This upscale Huntington Beach neighborhood features architecturally-unique homes with lush, mature landscaping as one of its main draws and Conrad Park located within the community. It is maintained by the association and offers lovely greenbelts and park-like settings, as well as a basketball court and children’s playground. Homes in Trinidad Island – one of five manmade islands in the Huntington Harbour – are located in the northwest Huntington Beach area and include panoramic waterfront views, the majority of them built in the late 1970s and featuring three-to-six-bedrooms. Sizes of these homes range from 2,090 to 6,739 square-feet, and the community itself is surrounded by water with perimeter homes offering waterfront views with a small central park area.
Trinidad Island is considered by many to be the most luxurious of the Huntington Beach “islands,” and while Huntington Harbour is primarily residential – with most homes listing from one to nearly five-million dollars – there is a shopping center on Algonquin Street, the Huntington Harbour Mall, as well as a Trader Joe’s, which opened in 2009. There are also two banks, a medical center, a UPS store and several restaurants including Rita’s Italian Ice, the Harbour Rackhouse Bar and Grill, Red Table Restaurant, VegiLicious Vegan Restaurant, A Slice of New York and AoSa Coffee.
Huntington Harbour, as the main “hosting” area of these islands in Huntington Beach, consists of harbors and peninsulas located on the former site of the historic Sunset Bay Estuary wetlands, destroyed from dredging and filling when the land was developed for the new community. Huntington Harbour today is bracketed to the south by the 1,200-acre Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and to the north by the 5,256-acre Naval Weapons Station in Seal Beach. The Huntington Harbour Yacht Club, with a membership of approximately 300, was established in 1965, offering sailing lessons during the summer for disadvantaged youth.
There are five public “Mother’s beaches” in Huntington Harbour where local families bring their children to play in the sand and swim in the shallow water by the shore, while kayakers and paddle-boarders use the beaches as access points to the awe-inspiring harbor and swimmers enjoy long-distance laps undisturbed by waves and currents. Today’s Huntington Harbour plays host to approximately 3,500 residents who relish living in the residential development of some 680 acres, which includes the aforementioned five manmade islands with waterways varying from 15- to 20-feet in depth. These islands include Admiralty, Davenport, Gilbert, Humboldt and Trinidad.
