Nye Beach Neighborhood Tour, Night, Honeymoon Capital
Virtual Tour of Newport, Oregon Coast

Nye Beach arch, Newport Oregon coast

Nye Beach, it seems, was known as the "honeymoon capital" of the world in the teens and `20s. (This is back when Nye Beach was a separate resort town, complete with a natatorium and connected to Newport - what is now the bayfront - by only a primitive road made of planks and mud.)

It still has many romantic qualities today, partly due to the charming turnaround. And the area between Jump-Off Joe and Agate Beach is usually fairly deserted, making for some great walking hand-in-hand opportunities.
