In the beginning, Niechorze was a typical fishing village. Its development began only in the 19th century, and the real boom took place in 1870. In the decay of the 19th century there were 700 tourists registered in Niechorze and by the First World War there were three times as much of them.
On 1 July 1896 a narrow-gauge railway connecting Niechorze with Gryfice was opened here. Seventeen years later the line was extended to Trzebiatow and Pogorzelica and the next narrow-gauge railway station was built.
Niechorze was originally composed of two villages: Klein Horst and Gross Horst. On 1 April 1936 they were joined into one and named Ostseebad Horst. During WW2, Ostseebad Horst was captured by Polish Army, as a result of which it became a part of Poland. The town was called Niechorze and its inhabitants were displaced.
