    Be sure to visit the surrounding areas and trails! From tide pools to trails. There is more to see than just the lighthouse. Interpretive center is well done and very informative. Great volunteer staff!

    There are always wonderful things to see and do. Every time, we feel invited to slow down and enjoy puffins motorboating, otters wrestling, and every now and then the octopus tucking itself into the tiniest spot imaginable.

    The views were amazing, we lucked out with a gorgeous rainbow. The walking trail nearby was an added bonus. We missed the "tour" of the lighthouse and went back the next day but sadly there was no tour that day. The surrounding "Heritage" area offers a lot and worth the visit as well.

    Nye Beach is a small neighborhood of Newport and the most charming part of town. By itself - it almost feels like it’s own small beach town. The beach is awesome for walking and the area has lots of great eats. Highly recommend Stefanies Cafe for breakfast and Nanas or Sorrellas for dinner.

    Love that sea lions are allowed to congregate and socialize one with another on the rocks in the bay! Love all the seabirds too. Just love walking around there, have for 20 years and it's always wonderful ~

    We took Otter Crest Loop which is a smaller ocean side road off 101 which in itself is an adventure with some pretty great views, and stopped off at Cape Foulweather and found the little building that is a lookout which we'd never been to before. The National Park woman who works there did a great job telling us about the whales that come by this area from the cold waters of Alaska to have their babies down south in warmer waters before swimming back again. It was rather amazing, she said, that on both the these journeys both down and back, the whales have eaten enough that they don't eat at all on the trips! She also told us about some younger whales who stay in the area around the Lookout until they are large enough to make those trips, and they are often spotted eating small sea life from the kelp that floats around in the water right there. We would have loved to see some whales, but it's a little past the time. She told us that April/May will be a good time to return.

    Chose this place for our first yurt experience. It did not disappoint! It is the way to go when you have young kids. The yurt was exactly like the pictures I saw online. It even had electricity which was great because I could charge my phone.

    The location is perfect. Not too far from Portland, and a short walk to the beach. We did bring our stroller on the walk and while it was good for a while, it got too sandy and we had to ditch the stroller.

    The beach was quiet. We had it pretty much to ourselves! Our dog loved it too!

    We were able to buy a lighter and firewood when we got there.

    One of my favorite areas for beachcombing for agates, fishing, clamming and watching a beautiful sunset. If you go to the Wayside, you can park a RV and walk under the tunnel to the beach. Some of the other areas are not easy to get your rigs in and out. The one off Ocean View is smaller and I don't recommend trying. If you can drive down, it's worth it to watch the most beautiful sunset on a cloudyless or semi cloudy day.

    We thought we would come down to the park again, paid an entrance fee and began down the road. So peaceful, took tons of pictures and this day was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

    This is a great spot to visit if you want to see tide pools and creatures on the beach such as seals. The only thing I did not like about it is there’s a lot of government control in what you can and cannot do and I wish the government would go away.

    It was super windy on a late August Monday evening, but not the least bit crowded. We were staying in an RV park across the street and found this gem. My daughter had a wonderful time playing in the sand and surf.

    I’ve done a few glass blowing sessions before at other places but this was definitely the most hands on and fun session I have done. Jeff was an excellent and patient teacher, it was easy to follow his instruction and he let me do most of the work and only jumped in for the more advanced steps in the process. My husband and I had a wonderful time. Picked up our pieces the next day and my finished piece came out beautiful! I highly recommend doing a glass blowing session with Jeff at the Hot Shop when in Newport. You can reserve a session on his website..
