Nye Beach is located within the bounds of the city of Newport, Lincoln County, within a district sharing its name. As a result, there are plenty of places to eat, stay, shop, and even rent sports equipment including surf boards.
Nye Beach attracts a diverse crowd. As well as surfers, a fair number of beachcombers and tidal pool enthusiasts also visit. Swimming is not uncommon, especially during the summer months when the ocean temperature rises. The fishing here is generally excellent, as demonstrated by the presence of whales off the coast, and fish-eating eagles above it.
Cliffs steadily rise above Nye Beach, and perched on top, visitors will find New Cliff House. Listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places, it is now a hotel. Visitors will also find plenty of parking in and around the beach area.
- Good fishing
