This small community is like a little "downtown" of its own. Right by the beach with ample parking, there are a lot of things to see and do. A variety of restaurants and shops, it's clean and quaint.

Lots of sand, not very crowded and we lucked out and hit it on a sunny weekend. How could you ask for more? It's a bit of a walk down to the beach but very do-able and the public parking doesn't seem to bad if you have to drive to it since you aren't staying at a place right on... More

This area of Newport is really cool. Kinda laid-back, with charming/hipster type stuff. The business are cool, the beach is good too.

One of the few places in Oregon that is very accessible to walking on the beach. Parking in large lot often full but usually a spot can be found within a few blocks.

Love this little enclave of (mostly touristy) shops, cafes, bars, and beach access. The bayfront in Newport gets all the attention, and it's a good representation of a working seaport. But Nye Beach is smaller with nice lodging within a few blocks for walking to a cafe. Wouldn't stay anywhere else now that I've discovered it.

At at Nana's (very good), but I don't see what draws people to this area. The shops closed very early and there didn't seem to be anything else there.

This is a very nice beach that is located very close to nearby hotels, shops and restaurants. Morning exercise in terms of running or walking are safe and for the most part the sand is smooth. A windbreaker or hoodie is needed in the early morning or late evenings because of the cool winds and cold water.

This is an attractive shopping district with cute shops and restaurants. It is right on the beach. Parking was easy, but it was May when we visited.
