This is by far the best area to visit in Newport, Oregon. Most of the cute little shops and restaurants are located here. Parking can be tricky but worth the effort.

We walked this beach after breakfast- it was sublime. Not crowded. Great views. You can't walk all the way to light house to the north. But the view of it gets better as you walk. We walked about 2 miles up the beach and back. Very pleasant!

Had a pleasant walk here. Can enjoy the beach or lots of little shops. Had to find parking spots especially if you have a big truck like we did.
