Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area

Cobble Beach at Yaquina Head.  All photos were taken in April 2014.

Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area is truly outstanding.  The head is a model of scenic beauty.  Cobble Beach is an excellent place to peer into tide pools surrounded by birds & seals on the rocky islets & towering headlands.  The visitor's center is polished & informative.  It is set in a beautiful little valley between the high outcroppings of basalt that comprise the headlands.  There is ample parking.  Yaquina Head is easy to find just north of the Newport, OR city center on US Hwy 101.
