Yachats (pronounced YAH-hots) is derived from the Chinook Indian word, Yahuts, meaning "dark waters at the foot of the mountain." Nestled between the lush forested mountains of the Coast Range and the lapping waves of the Pacific Ocean, Yachats is the ideal spot for rest, recreation, and romance. The quiet unhurried atmosphere of this tiny (population 635) resort village offers vacationers a unique alternative to the hustle of city life and impersonal quality of a large coastal community.
As so many others have discovered, the little village with the big smile will become the place you will want to return to again and again. Whether you stay for a day, a week, or a month, you, too, will find Yachats irresistible.
Among the many activities you'll find in Yachats are beachcombing, strolling and tidepooling, hiking trails and bike routes, wheelchair accessible trails, whale watching, bird watching, art galleries, shopping and dining, golfing and horseback riding, fishing, clamming, crabbing, sand dune climbing, dune buggy rides, airplane rides, and winter storm watching. There are also five State Parks and numerous nearby waysides.
Yachats is an outstanding Pacific Oceanfront community with both charming cottages and modern homes for sale with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. The Yachats River cuts through town and if you follow the Yachats River Road east you will find Farms, Acreage, Land, Vaction Rentals, Bed and Breakfast's and Homes nestled well into the Pacific Coast Range.
