When it’s summer in Oregon, you’re going to want to head to the beach. One of the great things about staying at the Embarcadero Resort during your vacation is that you’re just a few minutes away from the gorgeous Nye Beach! There are plenty of fun things to do at the beach, whether it’s just you, your family, or a big group of friends. 

The Top 4 Fun Things to Do at Nye Beach

The best thing about Nye Beach, aside from the sand and water, is that there is plenty to do for free! We created a list of the top four fun things to do at the beach that will make for an amazing afternoon for your entire group. Whether you want to relax all day or enjoy activities with the kids, there’s plenty of ways to have fun at the beach.

Read a Book

Maybe there’s one book you’ve been meaning to read, but between work and the overall business of life, you haven’t found the time. Knock out a few chapters, or the whole thing, underneath the sun when you spend the day relaxing on Nye Beach.

Have a Picnic

Pick up some food to go at some of the delicious restaurants in Newport, or have an old fashioned picnic with homemade sandwiches and snacks prepared in the fully equipped kitchen in your suite at the Embarcadero Resort! All you need are a few towels and some drinks, and you’re good to go for an ocean-side lunch with the family.

Watch for Dolphins and Other Marine Life

Since you’re right on the ocean, keep your eyes peeled for dolphins or other marine mammals! Even if you’re on the shore, you can still see these curious creatures breaching through the surface. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

Throw a Frisbee or Football

Playing frisbee or catch is a great way to get some exercise while also getting some good sun. Have a blast running around the beach and working on your tan, and burn off the calories from that picnic. Be careful if it’s windy – you might have to do some extra work to find a lost frisbee or football!
