Clam Chowder

The Chowder Bowl Restaurant a must for those coastal days when only a hot bowl of chowder can take the chill away. For me the best in town.

We walked here from our accommodations and enjoyed the view from the overlook before walking down the ramped area. There is also a nice protected area with rocks to view the rocky intertidal life (anemones, barnacles, mussels, algae).

The area now boasts a variety of shops and restaurants, including my favorite lunch spot, The Chowder Bowl and dinner spot, The Sylvia Beach Hotel. If you can, stay in an author themed room at this hotel-the rooms are fascinating. The beach is huge. Although there are always people on it, there is still plenty of room if you want... More

Nye Beach is an old neighborhood once full of small cottages that housed fishermen and mostly low income folks. It's now a highly desireable area to live and housing prices have sky-rocketed. With the posh influx comes great restaurants (Cafe Stephanie, Nana's Irish Pub, Nye Beach Cafe) and cute shops full of things you don't need but would love to... More

I live just about 3 blocks from Nye beach, and I really do think it one of the great areas of Newport. The Nye Beach turnaround area offers some of the easiest acces to the beach anywhere in Newport. The surrounding shops range from quirky, to ritzy, to fun. As a pedestrian, Nye beach is one of the best places... More

Miles of wide, flat, sandy beach, with places where you can discover marine life, tad pools and have hours of fun. Killer sunset pictures opportunities too, either from the beach of from the rocky shelf looming over the beach.

this beach is beautiful and is huge. Its a great place to take a walk and enjoy. Kids and dogs were having a ball. The surf is safe as it breaks three or four times.

Lots of reasons to spend time here.....lovely views of the ocean and Yaquina Head lighthouse, easiest beach access in the area, interesting Visual Arts Center, The Chowder Bowl's yummy slumgullion plus the best bread pudding ANYWHERE, and some fun shopping. This is a terrific little district, definitely a must-see when in Newport; we enjoyed it, so will you.
