Yachats (South)

Discover the beauty of majestic headlands, jagged shorelines and romantic lighthouses in the coastal village of Yachats.

Greenhouse Marketplace
Four artist-owned galleries and a summertime art school call the Greenhouse Marketplace home—an entrancing enclave of standalone buildings devoted to art. Earthworks Gallery emphasizes Pacific Northwest artists, with focus on contemporary paintings, jewelry and handcrafted wood furniture. Wave Gallery showcases coastal living photography. Touchstone Gallery features over 100 Oregon artists, as well as jewelry, ceramics, paintings, baskets and sculpture. Dancing Dogs Pottery & Art highlights paintings, porcelain, stoneware ceramics and one-of-a-kind jewelry. Bloom!, a cozy studio tucked away behind the galleries, offers seasonal art workshops.

Little Log Church & Museum
A treasure trove of local historical artifacts and contemporary works, with special events and regular fine arts exhibits, this cute piece of history is still used for weddings and memorials.

Cape Perpetua
Towering trees looming through a coastal fog. Frothy surf crashing upon jagged shores. Majestic headlands offering clear views for miles—the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area is waiting for you to explore. Three miles south of Yachats rests this coastal wonderland, where the forest meets the ocean. The landscape is filled with tide pools, churns and spouting horns, as well as hiking trails and a visitor center offering one of the most dramatic views along the Oregon Coast.

Heceta Head Lighthouse
South of Yachats and perched on a bluff 150 feet above the Pacific, Heceta Head Lighthouse keeps vigil with one of the brightest lights on the coast, casting out 21 miles to sea. At 56 feet tall, Heceta Head also offers a bed and breakfast in the historic lighthouse keeper’s house, as well as tours and an interpretive center.

Sea Lion Caves
On the south side of Cape Perpetua sits America’s largest sea cave and the year-round home of the Steller sea lion. The main cavern soars to the height of a 12-story building and stretches the length of a football field. Descend 208 feet in a high-speed elevator down to the caves to experience one of the coast’s best natural wonders.
