DescriptionYachats (YAH-hahts) is a small village nestled between lush forested mountains and dramatic Pacific surf. Uncrowded beaches are ideal for agate hunting, beachcombing, fishing, picnicking or strolling, making Yachats a popular vacation spot. The area offers a diverse selection of trails for hikers and mountain bikers of all levels; trails range from difficult to wheelchair accessible. Along the oceanfront, visitors can discover rocky promontories and observe dramatic surf, especially during winter storms occurring December through February.
The nearby Yachats River is a popular spot for salmon and steelhead fishing. Just south of town is Cape Perpetua, the highest point on the Oregon coast. It offers a dramatic ocean view from its 800-foot-high stone lookout. The U.S. Forest Service operates an interpretive center and campground at Cape Perpetua and maintains 26 miles of hiking trails that lead past old-growth temperate rain forest, tide pools and the beach.
