Wonderful View

This beach has a wonderful view of the lighthouse. Was very windy and cold when we were there, eating ice cream without enough clothes!! Would love to return when warmer.

I lived in the old Gilmore for a season and Nye Beach was my wheelhouse. It's come a long way since then with lots of delicious restaurants, bakeries and candy stores. There are boutiques and old-timey bars, art galleries and coffeeshops. There is plenty of parking, beach access, local events, and a cultural center nearby that you can catch high... More

My son's class spent the afternoon here after arriving in Newport on their spring trip. Some kids played frisbee while others explored the beach. A fun time was had by all.

Love Nye Beach. One of my favorite places to eat is Nye Beach Cafe. Favorite place to shop is at "Manoosh's"...ladies, if you want sophisticated elegant clothes, treat yourself and visit Manoosh!

Visited Nye Beach today because of the chowder restaurant there. The beach is huge and lovely, but I do think it would be quite crowded in the summer months based on what I saw on a colder, grey afternoon. Lots of little shops and galleries in the area to explore too. Nice area to spend some time in.

This area was more of a tourist area than a natural wonder to visit. We did have a good lunch at the Chowder Bowl here. We explored the beach, which was pet friendly. There were many gulls who swarmed around used to getting food from people.

Thought this would be a larger area with more shops and places to eat. Really was about 2-3 blocks only and not that much was interesting. Pretty disappointed, thought it would be more Cannon Beach style and it sure wasn't. Great beach access though.

My wife and I visited this place on our way to the beach with couple friends. It was so nice that we decided to spend more time there on our way back home. We really enjoyed our walk in this area. It was a beautiful sunny morning, walking in this neighborhood with many European style boutiques and bakeries, and having... More
