Yachats is a hidden gem along the Oregon Coast, due to its uncommercialized shoreline and quaint village. The coast features the same basalt rock bluffs, foggy mornings, and access to nature trails as you’d come to expect with the Pacific Northwest, but with a comfortable, lived-in feel in town that makes for a restful stay.
During your trip, make sure to stop at the Yachats Farmers Market on Sunday mornings in the summer, where you can enjoy fresh blueberries and the beach community. With a quick drive, there are plenty of natural attractions that are worth seeing in the area as well, like Cook’s Chasm, Devil’s Churn, and Thor’s Well. Come back from your adventure to your home base at Yachats vacation rentals, whether a cozy pet-friendly cabin or a beachfront cottage.
Nestled along the mouth of the Yachats River, halfway between Newport and Florence, a vacation home in Yachats offers the all-too-rare combination of a charming downtown, beautiful beaches, and a sense of real tranquility. Yachats is just over 3 hours from Portland, 2 hours from Salem and Eugene, and just an hour and a half from Corvallis. It's a little more secluded than many of the coast's other destinations, but still within an hour of Newport's bustling attractions, Florence's photogenic scenery, and plenty of deserted beaches and sleepy fishing villages in between.
While the town of Yachats itself is charming, the biggest draw in the area is Cape Perpetua, arguably the site of the best viewpoint along the entire Oregon Coast. The 803-foot-high viewpoint offers a panoramic view stretching 150 miles north-to-south, and almost 40 miles out to sea on a clear day. Just a few miles south of town, the official Cape Perpetua Scenic Area includes an informative visitor's center and over twenty miles of hiking trails leading to unforgettable scenic vistas.
Nearby parks at Neptune Beach, Cummins Creek, and Smelt Sands offer additional spots for hiking, picnicking, wildlife watching, and fishing.
