“Check out the rocks behind the Fireside Motel”
Reviewed August 11, 2009

Sea stars, anemones, mussels and small fish--these are just a few of the beautiful creatures you will find in the tide pools on the rocks behind the Fireside Motel. But check a tide table before you go out, and hike along the rocky shore with great care. There are plenty of places to slip and fall if you're not careful. If you're not up for a little rock hopping, there is a nice path winding between the motel and the rocky shore (which includes sitting areas) that provides some beautiful views of the ocean (but not the tide pools).

“Spend some time and explore!”
Reviewed August 25, 2007

Beatiful! Gorgeous! Drive up to the top of the promintory and take some pix looking out over the ocean from 800ft up. Better yet, take a picnic, as there's a great park up there. Also take the hike to the cove and visit Devil's Churn. Check high tide, that's when it's best.

“Yachats Ocean Road State Natural Site”
Reviewed February 18, 2007

This parkland, accessible by taking a right onto Yachats Ocean Road off of highway 101 southbound immediately after you cross over the Yachats River, offers almost sublime panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and rocky coastline. It's a great place for photography, and it's free, too!! Here's a link for more, info:


The Yachats State Recreation Area on the other side of the river is also a grand place for sightseeing.
