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,...More

This was nothing special. The whole thing left me feeling pretty cold. It's hard to get to the beach/water line, and there's not much to see once you get there. Lots of flowers, though.

The natural beauty in this area has been well preserved. Easy to find many low traffic beaches and forest hikes within miles of each other. Focus remains on nature not commercialism.

Wonderful views of the ocean and majestic land rising up. This is much more interesting than Haystack Rock. Calming, relaxing, and you get to see so much more.

There is an interesting beach just south of “downtown” at the mouth of the Yachats River. Turn right immediately after crossing the bridge, and there is a small parking area and stairs to the beach.

We stayed at the Ziggurat that was beautiful and right on the water about 5 miles from town. You can go to AirBNB and search for "Yachats Ziggurat" to check on availability.
