Yachats - Oregon Coast Visitors Association

Yachats

“Yachats” (pronounced YAH-hots) is derived from the Chinook Indian word, Yahuts, meaning “dark waters at the foot of the mountain.” Nestled between the lush forested mountains of the Coast Range and the lapping waves of the Pacific Ocean, Yachats is the ideal spot for rest, recreation, and romance. The quiet unhurried atmosphere of this tiny (population 635) resort village offers vacationers a unique alternative to the hustle of city life and impersonal quality of a large coastal community.

Among the many activities you’ll find in Yachats are beachcombing, strolling and tidepooling, hiking trails and bike routes, wheelchair accessible trails, whale watching, bird watching, art galleries, shopping and dining, golf and horseback riding, fishing, clamming, crabbing, sand dune climbing, dune buggy rides, airplane rides, winter storm watching and there are five State Parks and numerous nearby waysides.

As so many others have discovered, the little village with the big smile will become the place you will want to return to again and again. Whether you stay for a day, a week, or a month, you, too, will find Yachats irresistible.

    Cleft of the Rock lighthouse is placed on a bluff near Cape Perpetua, and attached to the home of its former keeper, Jim Gibbs. This lighthouse is somewhat mysterious, as it can only be seen from highway 101. It was also originally designed as a private navigation device for the United States Coastguard.
