Easy stairs beach access and free parking. Yachats only sandy beach (at low tide). Plus rocky basalt shores at the South end. A blow hole several blocks south of the stair access. No restrooms except in early July.

I cannot say enough about this place. It is a haven to me when I get all muddled up and a serene place to get back to being human. Low tide, high tide, sunny or overcast it is simply one of my favorite places.

Lovely area with tide pools and low tide, big crashing waves at high tide. You can sit in your car, or you can get out and hike around the rocks also walk on the beach at low tide. Usually a good view of surfers.

A wonderful place for the sick, lame and lazy to enjoy the wild or tame Pacific Ocean from the comfort of a vehicle.

Get up close and personal with the sea. Get sand between your toes. Watch birds. Explore tide pools.

This is a small park at the west end of town with a public restroom and parking. You can't go wrong anywhere you stop to look in or around Yachats.

we love to visit here all year! Most people come in the summer when the weather is most consistent and calm, but the winter can be REALLY exciting. The winter storm waves are absolutely amazing, often more than 20 feet high and they crash on...More
