The Wild, Rugged Waters of Coastal Oregon

Oregon’s Pacific coast is known for its beauty and wide open spaces. Small towns dot the shoreline, but the majority of the coast is composed of wide-open spaces and beautiful sandy beaches. Flying a kite or enjoying the salty air and views are favorite pastimes. Vacation houses, cottages or condos offer beachfront views and offer amenities such as a cozy fireplace, internet access and an outdoor grill for dinner parties and entertaining.

Beachcombing and Clamming

Oregon’s cool, open waters and wide beaches are an ideal location for beachcombing and crabbing. Many pretty, unique items wash up on Oregon’s beaches, including sea glass, shells, driftwood and colorful agates. Walking the beach and collecting these treasures after a high tide is a relaxing and fun activity that will allow you to explore many miles of surf and sand. Clamming is also an enjoyable way to explore the beach, with a selection of razor and hard-shell clams to take home for your evening meal. Tillamook is a clamming destination and an excellent location to try your hand at collecting these delicacies from the sea.

Dining and Shopping

The towns of Astoria, Newport, Cannon Beach and Bandon offer upscale dining and shopping experiences. You will find a wide range of seafood options to be available, with local fish and seafood featured on nearly every restaurant menu. These fresh, delicious selections can often be enjoyed with a view overlooking the ocean. Many small boutique shops offer beach-themed gifts, clothing, candy and shells to take home as souvenirs of your relaxing beach vacation.

Lincoln City’s Outlet Stores

Many visitors to the coast enjoy the savings of shopping at the name-brand factory outlet stores in Lincoln City. If you enjoy shopping, you will be able to spend a fun day picking up bargains from your favorite stores and brands while also soaking up the ambiance of the Pacific coast.

Whale Watching and Aquariums

Whale watching is another popular pastime at the Oregon Coast. You can grab the binoculars and choose a vantage point to watch the ocean and spot whales breaching in the open water. If the whales aren’t cooperating by putting on a show, you can head to Newport and visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium to see the marine mammals and fish up close.

Oregon Coast Aquarium This beautiful, modern facility offers up-close viewing of many local ocean mammals and fish, including jellyfish, otters, small sharks, native fish and octopus. Diving programs and special events for kids are options at the aquarium as well. Educational exhibits and presentations are fun for the entire family, and it’s a great way to spend time at the coast when rainy weather isn’t cooperating with your outdoor plans.

Weather

The weather on the Oregon Coast is almost always cool, rainy and windy. Windbreakers, rain gear and waterproof boots or shoes are necessary as are hats and gloves for the beach. Although freezing temperatures are rare on the Oregon coast, the strong winds can make the coast a very cold place to be - even in the summer. The ocean is generally far too cold for swimming or surfing, although on a few rare warm summer days, you may find swimmers and surfers in the water.

How to Get There

Coastal Oregon is remote, and the best way to travel to the small towns along the coastline is by private or rental car. Portland International Airport is just a two-hour drive from the coast, and it is the best location to fly into for your vacation. Small airports on the coast are available for private charter flights, and bus service is also an option for traveling along the coast.

Wonderful Ocean Getaway

5 of 5
This home was lovely and stocked with everything we needed. It felt professionally cleaned when we arrived and we felt immediately at home. There was plenty of room for our family of five, plus my parents. We enjoyed cooking meals and eating together, and watching movies at night in the TV room. Our days were filled with beachcombing, and it was SO comfortable to have this home as our base for the night. The view was a treat, as was the local family of deer that wandered the surrounding yards (perhaps the locals aren't as happy with the deer though since we saw some shooing them away-haha). We are already talking about returning for another getaway this winter. A genuine thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful home and making it such a nice retreat for others!
