Fabulous beach and a quaint old time beach feel at Nye Beach.
Loved visiting here. Tide pools were fun to check out. You have to be very careful to not hurt nature while observing the beauty.
Beautiful beach, clean not over crowded. There's a seating area above the beach area overlooking everything.
This is a wonderful little beach to take a walk on. The access points are clearly marked and parking during the off-season is plentiful. Some of the shoreline is a little rocky, but easy to scamper across. Occasionally, there are logs piled up, which can also be a bit hazardous when wet. The sunsets here are very nice and it is always pleasant to take a barefoot walk in the sand here.
Very scenic and peaceful.
