    Out of my entire trip last summer that went through the entire western halves of both Oregon and Washington, Yaquina Head was easily my favorite location to visit. We were in Newport on the last two days of our trip. On the night before we had to drive back up to Seattle, we decided to drive around and we discovered this place. We got there at about 7pm, and the sun was starting to set so the lighting was gorgeous. We accidentally stayed a few minutes after 9, which is when they close! Even though we had a 6 hour drive ahead of us, I forced my whole family to go back for an hour. I would recommend visiting around sunset, as it was spectacular, but it was still very pretty in the morning and we were able to see the tide pools since the tide was a lot lower than the night before. We saw lots of seals, shorebirds, a large variety of tide pool animals, and we were helped by a very friendly park ranger. Sorry I just wrote an essay on this place, but that’s just because I feel the need to stress how much I just loved this little beach.

    Great views, saw a couple of whales and seals. Flys were a pain but we just happen to be there when they were swarming. Nice access to cobble beach but not easy walking. Did not see any stars in the tide pools but that may not be unusual. They need to have a one day pass. We had to get the three day but only had one day to go there. Also parking near the light house was full so I had to park at the center and walk since my girlfriend had an injured foot. They have room for more spots they need to make them available!

    I have been to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse many times. it is amazingly awesome. Taking the tour of the lighthouse is wonderful. Being on top of the huge rock with the lighthouse is wonderful. Going to the visitor’s center is great and also going to the rocks below the lighthouse is fabulous. Oregon Rocks!!!

    As an Oregonian familiar with the coast, disappointed in this lighthouse tour. You used to be able to freely walk up to the top by yourself, and is now by tour only and the tour guide acts as a person from the era of which was built. Good for kids, but disappointing as an adult.
