Newport's Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area
Virtual Tour of Newport, Oregon Coast
The Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area boasts a manmade tide pool area, various hiking paths, a variety of rocky areas to climb around on, a strange, surreal beach and a visitors center. Oh yeah, and there's a wondrous old lighthouse.
There's a paid fee for use of this Bureau of Land Management area. Once you do so, you'll meander along this winding road past stark, barren landscapes and come to the interpretive center.
