Yachats, Oregon

Yachats, Oregon is located at the mouth of the Yachats River and is one of the few places where the sea-run smelt come to spawn on the beaches. Yachats is also known as the "Gem of the Oregon Coast".

One of the highest points on the Oregon Coast is located just south of Yachats...Cape Perpetua. You will find a dramatic view of the ocean from this 800 foot headland.

Yachats holds a special place in the hearts of myself and my husband. Cozy small beaches scatter the coastline here in between the rock formations. Yachats has provided a walking path along the full length of their coastline and it's a joy to stroll along and watch the waves just steps away from the path. This is one of the few places we know of where you can have an ocean view and a dog. The businesses are extremely friendly.
