YACHATS, Oregon - About halfway between Florence and Newport, this tiny town features boasts views in endless abundance. This decidedly rugged, even jagged part of the central Oregon coast features beaches that are primarily rocky slabs and shelves, surreal and pointy in many spots, with crevices and blowholes, all interspersed with tiny spots of sandy beaches comprised of rather large, coarse grains.

It's different here. And there's a lot crammed into one small area.

In back of "downtown" lies the largest, main beach access. Yachats State Recreation Area comes with an enormous parking lot and some concrete spots close to the surf - perfect for a picnic by the raging seas of this extraordinary area. The street follows the shoreline for several blocks, with the occasional bench on a high perch or a beach access here and there.
