Yachats is foggy many months of the year, with September and October being the best times to visit. Although, it was quite gray and misty when we visited towards the end of October.
When planning a Pacific Coast road trip, one might find it easy to overlook Yachats on Oregon’s coast. However, miss out on Yachats and you’ll miss out on one of the best Oregon beach towns. It may not be well-known, but one visit to this cozy coastal town with its culinary delights, and you will be sold. As with many Oregon beach towns, Yachats offers a beautiful backdrop for photographers with its stunning views and gorgeous shoreline. Moreover, nature enthusiasts and seafood lovers have nothing to fear, Yachats has you covered. If planning an overnight stay, spend the night at The Drift Inn; we stayed in the Mermaid Haven room. Its cozy rooms and excellent proximity to beaches and restaurants makes it an ideal spot. In the morning, make your way to the Green Salmon, just across the street from the inn. The food is very tasty, fresh and organic, and the atmosphere is incredibly cozy. This is a kind of place you won’t want to leave on a rainy day. After your tummies are satisfied, head out to discover why Yachats has the best beaches in Oregon for families. With its basalt shoreline, tide pools, trails and more, exploration and adventure await. Next, after some fun and photography, satisfy that lunch craving at Luna Sea Fish House. Located right along the beach, Luna’s serves fresh seafood, locally harvested by the owners themselves. Its famous chowder and fish and chips are delectable. If you’re looking for a great spot on Oregon’s coast, head to Yachats with the kids. This coastal town will not disappoint.
