Good ocean views... walk to Nye Beach

Easy walk down to Nye Beach and great beach access from here. Good ocean views. Interesting whale bone sculpture in the park by local artist.

Nice to be able to walk dogs in a grassy area above the Pacific Ocean. I have so many memories of walking here--during my first stay in Newport when I gave a concert at the Performing Arts Center in 2007, then countless times when playing piano at Café Mundo, taking my break to walk with my Golden Retriever. The park... More

This Park is next to Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. It is a neat park. It is family Friendly, more enjoyable in sunny weather, but open everyday.

This quiet Vietnam war memorial is isolated and small, but perhaps more moving as a result. You can't miss it if you are staying in this area, since it is the only pathway down to the beach. Take a moment to walk into the memorial itself and reflect.

This little park has a beautiful pathway down to the beach. The park has nice facilities and is great for enjoying the view or hiking down to the beach. There is a fairly steep incline on the way down to the beach, but the the pathway is maintained well.

We stumbled on this one while checking out public art. There were a few pieces there, including parts of a whale skeleton and an interesting native narrative engraved into granite with it. There were a couple of other artworks just across the street at the performing arts center. Worthy of a stop for photos. Not sure how big the part... More

This is a beautiful place to picnic and watch the waves roll in. Easy access to gorgeous beaches to walk. No shells to find but plenty of driftwood and stones. Many miles of beach to enjoy. The park has a couple of pieces of art and nice restroom facilities.

As we traveled from the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse past the Fisherman's Memorial we stumbled upon this very nice and quiet beach. You can see Yaquina Head in the far distance and a beauiful beach spans the horizon. There is a beach just before the steep path down to the beach where you can just sit and take in the beauty....
