Lincoln Beach is a small residential community, nestled between the resorts of Gleneden Beach and the whale-watching mecca at Depoe Bay. Visitors to an Oregon Coast vacation rental at Lincoln Beach (not to be confused with nearby Lincoln City) find more peace and quiet than in most nearby towns, while still staying within a short drive of the region's most popular attractions. Even better, the state parks and scenic viewpoints nearby offer some of the most beautiful vistas along the Central Oregon Coast.
A few miles south of town, the Otter Crest Loop provides an exceptionally thrilling overview of the region's highlights. Strolling the wooden footbridges and sandy shoreline of Fogarty Creek State Park, which begins at the south end of town, offers some of the best birdwatching and tide pool viewing in the state.
A Lincoln Beach vacation rental has the staples of a small coastal town, including a grocery store and a coffee shop, and the surrounding towns offer a wide variety of dining, shopping, and entertainment options. A five minute drive up Highway 101 (or a long walk along the beach) sits Gleneden Beach and the posh Salishan resort, which includes a golf course, spa, shops, and restaurants.
Ten minutes further is Lincoln City, with a lively dining scene, outlet mall, casino, movie theater, and plenty of souvenir shops. Heading south, Depoe Bay is only a five-minute drive from Lincoln Beach, and offers a handful of quality restaurants, shops, and plenty of opportunities for whale-watching! Within half an hour, visit Newport's famous aquarium, historic waterfront, and numerous restaurants and breweries.
Lincoln Beach sits only an hour and a half from Salem and Corvallis, and just under two and a half hours from Portland. For a quiet, cozy beach house to call home, but still within easy reach of all the attractions of the Central Oregon Coast, consider the sandy shores of Lincoln Beach.
