This is a very nice place to meet some locals who know a lot about whale migration, the area in general, and who are simply nice folks with whom to visit. It's also great for just ocean watching and learning a bit about the history of the community.

This view is spectacular. The paved walk to down to the beach is gently sloped & has a great view up the coast on the way down. Sit on the rock wall near the gazebo for great photo ops of the beach, up & down the coast & the lighthouse in the distance!

One of many more stops along the way on our Thanksgiving Vacation. Good stretch of the legs in the early morning and for those who like to run. Be mindful of the tide! It comes WAY up the beach.

Nice tribute to our Vietnam soldiers.The memorial is on the way to the beach The views are incredible & the walk to the beach is paved,although a declining path there are benches all along the walk for resting. Peaceful and restful.

My daughter was married in the gazebo. What a wonderful location. It was a small wedding but everyone fit inside with no problem. Needed to be inside since there were gale force winds happening. Still got pictures outside too.

I like this area because while I want easy beach access, I don't always want to go all the way down to the waterline. I particularly love this little park because it has all the amenities essential for a successful beach stop off...easy access to the beach via sidewalk. Lovely artist created benches ALL along the route in order to... More

A nice spot for a hike and beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean! We walked down part way on the path, but because I have mobility issues unable to go to the bottom! Newport does not have direct, flat walking access to its' beaches.
