Travel Tips for Yachats
Sea going ships passed by the...
Sea going ships passed by the Oregon coast as early as 1543 when Barteleme Ferrelo came this way. Sir Frances Drake (in 1575) and Martin de Aguilar (in 1605) also are known to have passed by. But Captain Cook was the first white man to really get credit for being in the Yachats area, although he was not able to land due to the rocky shore. He named Cape Perpetua on March 7, 1787. Some say he named the 800 foot high cape after a saint whose birthday fell on that date, while others think that it was because a storm and high winds kept them in the area for several days, with that particular headland in sight the whole time, perpetually.
"Escape, Relax, and enjoy the ocean....."
The oceanside is very rocky here. It reminds me a little of Bohuslän, the Upper West Coast of Sweden. Very clean, quiet, nature, and friendly people. Its restful and not allot of commercialism. One can sit by the sea and just dream, read or whatever and not be bothered by civilization.
"Yachats and the Oregon Coast"
Even though the Oregon Coast is in the top three summer destinations in the U.S., it still has a hidden romantic quality. Expect damp weather and white skies, moody sunsets and excellent seafood, windy roads and wonderful ocean air.
Gem of the Oregon Coast
I've never "travelled" to Yachats - I was born and raised here. After a few years in the city, I began to realize just how little I had missed, and disgusted with concrete, I returned to Yachats. Since the job market is laughable, consisting of either government positions (rare) and tourism (sadly), most people looking to Yachats as a place to live have to either be retired or willing to work for themself. Yachats has acquired a plethora of McMansions on the hillside with garish, immense monstrosities built into what was once a forested hillside, but if you stay to the low ground, you'll find the true ambience of Yachats - warm, friendly, welcoming and small town - the epitome of an Oregon coastal community.
YACHATS - ARTISANAL FULCRUM ON THE CENTRAL COAST
Pronounced without the 'c', Yachats is a small resort village of some 635 people at the mouth of the Yachats River. Yachats is the last town along a stretch of small towns extending south from Lincoln City, 50 miles to the north. South of here are headlands of the wild Cape Perpetua-Heceta Head region. The town is all about tourism, but on a scale less crass than other areas. Local festivals - like the Smelt Fry (Yachats is one of the few areas in the World where there is a run of oceangoing smelt - a good thing if you are fond of the sardine-like fish), the 4th of July, Arts and Crafts Fair, Crafts on the Coast Fair, Yachats Music Festival, Yachats Village Mushroom Fest and the Celtic Music Festival keep the local inns full. The area to the south is some of the most dramatic scenery found on the Oregon Coast and many make their home base here in Yachats. Find a beach and claim it for your own for a day, though you might have to share it with the local seals and birds.
See Yachats for more information on the town, the festivals, the food and fro places to stay.
