The Après Sea campaign, promising a winter experience like never before, transcends tradition and embraces the luxury of coastal indulgence

Embark on a visual journey into the enchanting realm of “Après Sea” with a new campaign commercial that entices viewers to peer into Newport Beach’s world, promising a glimpse of reimagined coastal experiences typically associated with snowy slopes. Unveiling a clever twist, the commercial kicks off by skillfully luring the audience into believing they’re witnessing a mountainous escapade complete with furry snow boots, ski equipment and sunglasses reflecting a wintry scene. Suddenly, the snowy scene flips to unveil the sun-kissed shores of Newport Beach, where a vibrant group of friends joyfully cruise on the picturesque Newport Harbor. This unexpected transition captures the essence of the Après Sea campaign, promising a winter experience like never before – one that transcends tradition and embraces the luxury of coastal indulgence.

“Our “Après Sea” campaign beckons visitors to trade the slopes for the sea this season and encourages a shift in the winter getaway paradigm,” said Gary Sherwin, president & CEO of Visit Newport Beach. “As a luxury coastal destination with year-round sunshine and world-class accommodations, there are so many ways to ‘seas’ the day, from soaking up the sun on a private yacht and browsing the boutiques to wining and dining by the bay. Newport Beach is not just a destination, it’s a white sand wonderland waiting to be explored.”

Visitors can also discover new ways to enjoy a cozy winter vacation on the water with the “Après Sea” landing page, a digital resource with offerings that include seasonal hotel promotions, culinary events, exclusive shopping guides and more. Also included are itineraries showcasing how to plan a luxury hibernation in the sun-kissed destination, as well as family-friendly “ski” week activities by the sea, the most buzzed-about spots around town, cozy winter dining and drink options to sip and savor.
