BEACHES & LANDMARKS

These iconic Oregon Coast sights are a must-see

There’s no place like the beach to kick off your Newport adventure. Visitors have been coming here for decades to experience this magnificent natural landscape and there are multiple access points throughout Newport. Each beach is unique and offers numerous activities like paddleboarding, surfing, biking, birding, kite flying, picnicking, beachcombing or playing fetch with your pup. 

 

If getting sand in your shoes is not your thing, Newport has some pretty impressive lighthouses perfect for a history buff or just a curious lookie loo. Take in panoramic ocean views at the Yaquina Head lighthouse and visit the interpretive center with a variety of educational exhibits detailing the rich history of the area. Or, if you’re particularly drawn to ghost stories, you’ll want to check out the Yaquina Bay lighthouse. Allegedly it's the oldest building in Newport and rumors claim it's haunted!
