Charleston

Charleston is a quaint fishing village just eight miles from Coos Bay and North Bend and is located just inside the entrance to the bay. Charleston is home to some of the finest recreation and most beautiful scenery in the Northwest.

The harbor is the heart of this community and serves as a home port to a large commercial fishing fleet. You’ll find a bustling marina serving charter boat operators, sports fishermen, crabbers and recreational boaters. The harbor area includes restaurants, tackle, seafood, and specialty gift shops. Unique seafood restaurants will appease any palette. You can choose from the Portside which sends its own boats out to catch the fresh fish of the day, the Oyster Cove which was featured on Rachel Ray, and the High Tide Café serving arguably the best fish and chips around. If you’d like a more authentic experience, stop by our fish markets. Go to Fisherman’s wharf on the D Docks to pick out your crab to be cooked and cleaned for you to take home or eat right there on the docks or stop by Chuck’s seafood for fresh oysters and clams.

Charleston is Oregon’s Adventure Coast’s gateway to outstanding ocean beaches, state parks, and stunning untouched scenery. Follow Cape Arago Highway and you’ll hit a trifecta of beauty in Sunset Bay State Park, Bastendorff Beach and the renowned Shore Acres State Park. You’ll find world class surfing, kayaking and scuba diving opportunities along with hiking and biking trails suited to all levels.
