Stroll Through Nye Beach
Check out recent improvements in the neighborhood
The Nye Beach Turnaround connects one of Newport’s favorite neighborhoods to miles of sandy beach, and is a great place to park your car while you explore. Visit the many shops and galleries that are nestled together in the neighborhood, and stop for some coffee, candy, of ice cream along the way. Nye Beach is also home to a variety of amazing restaurants, which offer diverse culinary delights, and several local bars that are perfect for a relaxing drink after your adventures. The beach is easy to access at the Turnaround, and is ideal for setting out your blanket, flying a kite, building sandcastles and making a fire to roast hotdogs or s’mores.
As you explore the neighborhood, check out some of the recent improvements:
Local favorite, Carl’s Coffee, has expanded. The neighborhood coffee shop recently doubled their space to offer more menu items and a convenience store. Soon, a deli featuring local BBQ will complete the transformation.
Elizabeth Oceanfront Suites, known for picturesque views and comfy luxury suites has added an enclosed space for beach fires. Located just behind the building, this new area is protected from the wind, and offers a convenient place to roast hotdogs and marshmallows for s’mores without hiking down to the beach.
The Turnaround parking lot construction is almost finished. The final pavement is being placed over the newly remodeled drainage system under the lot, and more parking will be available soon.
Rotating public art exhibits, classes and workshops are ever changing and readily available at Newport Visual Arts Center. Stop in and view the work of local, regional and nationally acclaimed artists, and find a class or workshop to increase your knowledge and skill.
