Nye Beach, with Yaquina Head in the Background
Virtual Tour of Newport, Oregon Coast
Scenes from the beaches of Nye Beach.
Top photo: Nye Beach in the summertime, with Yaquina Head in the background.

They're puffy and soft, but if those same formations are lurking just below the breakers, they create a particular hazard if you're walking in the tideline.
