Certificate of Excellence

Best to go when high tide is coming in to experience the roiling, churning waves as they come in. It's truly a one-of-a-kind experience!!

You can't find better wave action and the weather was perfect wham I came through. The town of Yachats (pronounced Ya-Hats) is small, so be prepared and bring what you need.

Spent a morning hiking the trails around the Cape Perpetua area. Beautiful, scenic, peaceful. Within literally moments of leaving the parking lot, you feel like your deep in the woods.

There are a variety of trails of different lengths and difficulty, so should be something appropriate to your group depending on how much time you have and how athletic you're feeling.

One of the most beautiful examples of the coastal rainforest, and very easy to access. If you are in the Yachats/Central Coast area, definitely recommend stopping by.

One of the most beautiful stretches of coast anywhere in the world. Maybe Olympic coast, Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, East end Grand Cayman, or the north shore of Kauai come close, but none better!

We love the whole area. It's a wonderful drive along the coast. Make sure to stop at all the pullouts. It's lovely even on cloudy windy days.
