This small-town park with a big view is just a short stroll from central Yachats down Ocean View Road. Watch for whales and storming waves from the easily-accessible viewing platform. On calmer days, take the steep path down to the rocky intertidal area, where low tide exposes craggy crevices and pools full of sealife. Pick up a Tide Table in town to track the best time of day for exploring.
