The name Yachats, pronounced Yah-hots, is derived from the Chinook Indian word Yahuts that means “dark water at the foot of the mountain”. This fitting name describes the picturesque landscape found here. The thick evergreen forest that saturates the hillside here meets the crashing waves of the Pacific at its base. The visual splendor of this coastal destination keeps visitors coming back for more.
While visiting Yachats, Oregon, be sure to enjoy one of the many community events offered by the locals. For example, on the first Thursday of each month, a 17-piece band plays music for the community. Put your dancing shoes on and go shake your tail feather at this fun community event.
Another choice might include participation in one of the many guided walks offered in this area. Strawberry Hill is a great choice for viewing harbor seals. There is also a mushroom walk in the fall and Tidepool Discovery Days in the summer.
