Gem of the Oregon Coast

Yachats means “dark water at the foot of the mountain.” Hazy Cascade Mountain horizons, surging ocean waters, and tide pools sunk in black basalt on the shoreline make the name altogether appropriate.

Located in a very unique spot, Yachats (pronounced YAH-hots) is widely regarded as a gem on the Oregon Coast. Instead of sandy beaches, much of the coastline near Yachats is composed of rugged black basalt that produces surging sea landmarks like Devil’s Churn, Spouting Horn, and Thor’s Well. Phenomenal views can be seen from the romantically-named Cape Perpetua, one of the best viewpoints on the Oregon Coast located a few miles south of town. In Yachats itself are top-notch galleries, restaurants, shops, breweries, a botanical preserve, and a city park built in restored marshland.
