I highly recommend the Nye Beach area with it's abundant shops, pubs and restaurants. The beach is great for any activity and goes for miles.

I was driving north on the Yaquina Light house road and came to Nye Beach. I have never been here in all the years I have lived in OR. It was a nice day, so I got my camera and headed down the path to the beach. It was lovely. I walked 3 miles and got a good workout. The... More

If you want to walk along the beach, listen to the roar of the ocean & watch the waves crash, Nye Beach is a great place to do it.

i like to go to the beach for tide pools, finding cool rocks, and looking for shells. there were not much of any of these. if you like a smooth, flat beach it is a great place for you. it just isn't my preferred hang out beach. very picturesque and pretty from a hotel window though

Had breakfast at Cafe Stephanie then walked down to the beach area, circled back and visited numerous shops. Very fun place to spend the day. Shopkeepers very friendly, the restaurants offer great food and live music on the weekends.

very cute downtown area, parking can be challenging in the busy season, but we were there at low season so no problems with parking.

A pleasant beach, interesting restaurants ranging from cafes and pubs to fine dining to eclectic, tourist shops, and performing arts are all centered in this part of Newport. Nicer area to wander in than down by the bay.

I made several trips to Newport before coming here. Not really a secret but lesser known a visitor might miss this place. Quieter and a little more upscale than the more popular Bayfront, this place is a very charming. Smaller, more artsy and less touristy discriminating visitors could enjoy this little find. Performing Arts Center has several local theater groups... More

Lots of activity, lots of little speciality shops, unique items offered. Parking near, and public restrooms all located near the beach! Great little area.
