This area is spectacular- scenic views around every turn on HWY 101, quiet beaches, great tide pooling, lots of wildlife! We liked the viewpoint of the Heceta Head Lighthouse from the south (1/4 mile marker to the sea lion caves)- no need to pay admission at either attraction- the views are free and there are sea lions on the rocks...

I have enjoyed coming to this area since I was a kid. You can collect agates along the rocky beaches north oh Yachats River or travel a few miles south to Cape Perpetua to explore tidepools and hike to the old military lookout to watch for whales. There's always a little shop to browse through and state parks to enjoy.

I enjoyed just walking along the beach looking for sea shells. I never did find an unbroken sand dollar.

Yachats really is a gem of the Oregon coast. Great small town, awesome beaches to explore, and right next to Cape Perpetua and wonderful hiking.

Yachats is a cute little town with tourist amenities and a great view of the iconic Oregon rocky coastline. At the State Park you can walk down to the water. Weathered remnants of the logging industry are everywhere and add charm to the beaches. The sky, ocean and expanse of sand make this a great spot to stop and chill.

We come to Yachats to see the ocean & beach; we live a few miles away and it's so different. Always something different. We end up taking hundreds of pictures.

We drove from Seattle to San Francisco , through Washington & Oregon, having done the beautiful,coastal drive from LA to SF a couple of years ago. For my money, the Oregon coast has the edge for spectacular views, & well maintained roads . The roads, while still winding around the coastline , where you can appreciate the best of the... More

The coastline in and around Yachats are among the best of the west coast. Friendly tourists with interesting travel dialogue are generally nearby and rewarding.
