Spring Break in Newport is Whale-Sized Oregon Coast Fun

Published 03/16/2015

(Newport, Oregon) – The fun and frivolity to be had in the central Oregon coast town of Newport is, well, whale-sized. Even more so this spring break, when you consider the miles and miles of pristine beaches, hiking trails, campgrounds, a bay full of crabbing opportunities – and then a host of special events that not only feature Whale Watch Week but augment it. (Above: Newport's Beverly Beach).

Whale Watch Week in Newport – falling right in with spring break – means some extra watery fun at places like the Hatfield Marine Science Center. But the town also boasts more whale watching spots – where volunteers sit to help you spot them – than anywhere else on the Oregon coast.

The beaches are just the beginning, but that's enough on its own to last you a full week. Starting on the southern end, all the way to Seal Rock (about ten miles away), you'll find bundles of fascinating structures to bounce around on, along with copious tide pools. A few miles up the road are some interesting hidden spots (see the Newport Virtual Tour for these), and then you run into sprawling South Beach State Park.

From the northern tip of the Yaquina Bay's jetty, you'll find one of the lighthouses above, the historic pleasantries of Nye Beach, and then the fluffy sands of Agate Beach that dead-end at the magnificent Yaquina Head and its soaring lighthouse. From here northward sit Moolack Beach and Beverly Beach, eventually running into Otter Rock and the wild splendors of the Devil's Punchbowl.

Kids will seriously enjoy crabbing in the bay – one of the hottest spots for this on the entire Oregon coast. Buy a permit, rent a crabpot (you can usually do both at the same place), and drop it over the side.

There's the historic Bayfront district here - a waterfront where sea lions and mammoth ships reside. Camping is also in this area, with two major campgrounds: Beverly Beach and South Beach State Park.
