“Yachats coastal walks”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

In the village of Yachats, go to the Yachats State Recreation Area park (W. on 2nd St.) for wonderful ocean views &, during migration, whale sightings.
Walk the historic 804 Trail from Smelt Sands Wayside north & down a trail to a wide sandy beach that stretches to Waldport (some small streams to ford).
South of Yachats, turn west to access scenic Yachats Ocean Rd. for great views & beach walks.

“Spectacular Walk”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Kudos to Oregon for doing it like it should be done!
The walk is exhilarating and you often pods of whales. We have done at least a dozen times and still look forward to our next visit

“A charming village with unbeatable scenery”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

This is a small, friendly village that hardly seems to change. We vacation here pretty well every Christmas season. We have come to know what to expect and our expectations are often surpasses. The coastline here is marvellous, although the entire coast from BC to California is unbeatable. Blessed are we who get to travel through this area and enjoy the scenery and hiking!!

“Pacific beauty on the Oregon Coast”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We have driven most of the Oregon Coast and found the section just south of Yachats to be the most scenic we've seen so far. The road is close to the ocean with towering cliffs, crashing waves, and huge evergreens. A bit like Big Sur, but with PNW foliage.

The town of Yachats is friendly, with a good pub and some nice coast walks. Highly recommended.

“sandy beaches”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

This coast line is great. Some of the beaches along here have very wide, flat areas, all absolutely clean and free of kelp and driftwood common further south. The many parks along the way allow easy access.
