  1. Good Harbor Beach
    The $20-25 non-resident fee to park in the beach lot may seem pricey, but Good Harbor's beautiful soft, white sand makes it worth it. Generally packed by midday, Good Harbor is big enough to accommodate crowds on the busiest days. The beach also has a snack shop, restrooms and showers, an island you can reach at low-tide, and the water temp is a perfect New England-cool.
  2. Atlantis Oceanfront Inn
    Watching the sun rise from Atlantis Oceanfront Inn is legendary, and every room is treated to a sprawling ocean vista. Completely renovated in 2009, Atlantis's 40 modern, spacious rooms are on the east side of town, just a quick walk to Good Harbor Beach.
  3. Bass Rocks Ocean Inn
    With unencumbered views of the Atlantic (and the occasional seal), Bass Rocks Ocean Inn has 51 rooms—all with private balconies or patios—10 minutes from downtown. Breakfast, as well as afternoon tea and cookies, come complimentary with your room.
  4. Wingaersheek Beach
    Wingaersheek Beach has kid-friendly still waters and soft, white sand. There's a sandbar in low-tide that's perfect for long strolls and tide pools with marine life. Only residents are allowed after the parking lot fills up, so make sure to plan your trip very early in the day or later in the afternoon. Parking also ranges from $15 to $20 depending on the time you show up.
  5. Gray Beach
    The Gloucester area offers a variety of sandy chores from which to choose, but nature lovers go for quietier Gray Beach in Magnolia. Part of the Coolidge Reservation, Gray Beach is populated with beach pea and beach rose, and an array of gulls.
  6. Latitude 43
    Fresh-caught local fish stars in everything from chowders to entrées to sushi in cozy, firelit spaces decorated with subtle maritime flair. Grab a seat on the deck to take in the views and at night, the tavern has live music.
  7. Alchemy
    Alchemy provides an uspcale dining experience with a reasonable price tag. A majority of their offerings can be made vegetarian or gluten-free upon request, the seating is relaxed and intimate, and the menu is full of creative dishes.
  8. Plantation Course
    Every year, golf fans can get a good look at the Plantation Course's oceanfront holes—and catch glimpses of breaching whales in the distance—during the PGA Tour's season-starting, televised event, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Hawaii's stunning landscape means that there is plenty of mediocre golf to be had on the islands that can boast beautiful scenery, but this course is truly the real deal, designed in a bold fashion by Coore & Crenshaw, who seem never to build anything less than a terrific golf course.
  9. Cape Ann Brewing Company
    A family-owned business, Cape Ann Brewing Company serves specialty craft-beer (brewed on site) and delicious fish-and-chips. The long bar tables encourage new friendships and their new deck has great views.
  10. Cape Perpetua Scenic Area
    Part of Yachats' appeal lies in the largely undeveloped coastline. Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, about two miles south of downtown, has 26 miles of hiking trails, including the Captain Cook Trail, which weaves down the shore to a kaleidoscope of tide pools. The 2,700-acre park is also home to breathtaking views, namely the Cape Perpetua Overlook, one of the highest points that visitors can drive to on the Oregon Coast.
  11. Cape Ann Farmers' Market
    Over 1,200 people visit each Thursday to check out the various vendors, work by local artists, and live music. The market also prides itself on education, particularly on subjects regarding nutrition and community awareness.
  12. Ocean Road State Natural Site
    If you're looking to dig your toes in the sand, the Ocean Road State Natural Site is a soft stretch of shore within walking distance of town. The calm waves are perfect for wildlife watching, and the surrounding cedar benches are a good base from which to scan the surf for seals, pelicans, and egrets.
  13. Monogram Shop
    Valerie Smith's Monogram Shop has the best hostess gifts. Get a wide variety of items customized, everything from hand blown glasses to linen tissue boxes and towels.
  14. Luna Sea Fish House
    The abundant coastline helps foster the local economy of Yachats; most restaurants around town serve locally caught seafood. Owner and "village fishmonger" Robert Anthony says he named his restaurant after his own original fishing boat, and still provides the cafe's daily catch after 10 years. Luna Sea serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, as well as meals to-go.
  15. Parrish Art Museum
    Housing a large collection of art dating from the 19th century to the present, Parrish Art Museum is a go-to spot. The gallery has a focus on artists from surrounding areas and the museum puts on events, tours, and lectures.
