We have the best of both worlds -- close enough to Newport (12 miles) to go to dinner or take in the galleries, shops, music festivals, aquarium, brew pubs, and other attractions -- yet our beach has the rare combination of rocks (for good fishing and picturesque sunsets), tide pools, and wide open stretches for walking. You won't find this kind of beach in Newport or Waldport, only in between, which is where we are. And seeing other people on 'our' beach is unusual! The village of Seal Rock (our postal address) is one mile up the road, with several antique and gift shops and a convenience store. Four miles south is Waldport, with a great supermarket, fish market, post office, video rental, more antique shops, and a great dock where you can go crabbing or rent a small boat to toss crab rings into the bay. They'll even cook your crabs for you! Take a hike into old growth wilderness just a few miles away, with good maps from the U.S. Forest Service.
Other Activities: whale watch cruises, wine tours, historic lighthouses, aquarium, old growth trails, hiking, crabbing, mussel gathering, mushrooming (in season)
