Nye Beach, with Yaquina Head in the Background
Virtual Tour of Newport, Oregon Coast
Scenes from the beaches of Nye Beach.
In the '20s and '30s, two other rock structures popped up that came and went - both becoming arches and both sometimes getting falsely nicknamed Jump-Off Joe. One was a rock tunnel a ways south of the Natatorium (a warm salt-water bath that stood about where the Turnaround is now). This one was apparently located right in front of where the Vietnam Memorial currently sits, not far from this chunk of rocks. This rock structure here is nicknamed "the pier."
