A beautiful flat open beach and it's got plenty of room to walk and if the weather is nice you can see the lighthouse in the distance.

We stayed in the Nye Beach Condos and had a great time. The Nye Beach area has lots of great restaurants and shops to browse in. The beach in long and beautiful! We loved it.

We recently enjoyed walks on the beach and views that could not be believed. Nye beach is relaxing for all, from couples, to kids to dogs.

We spent time in Newport OR for the first time a week ago. We weren't aware of Nye Beach until someone recommended it to us. So glad they did!! Great shops and restaurants. Beautiful beach!
