Yachats Ocean Road State Natural Site

Near Newport, Oregon, United States

COVID-19 UPDATE: Beach access is open to limited daytime use. Be prepared to turn around if crowded. Bring your own water, food and hand sanitizer. Do not travel far to visit.


Yachats Ocean Road makes a one-mile loop, exposing one of the most scenic viewpoints on the coast: the Yachats Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Limited parking along the loop provides access to this expansive beach  made for sandcastles and frisbee games. Tucked below the quaint coastal town of Yachats, the Yachats River flows into the ocean here. Anglers enjoy casting from the rocks off the mouth of the river, hoping to hook a Chinook salmon or rockfish. Kiddos -- and pups -- will love splashing in the sandy, shallow river.
