The secret is out! Portland Monthly magazine has recognized the beauty of Yachats:

10 Essential Oregon Beaches
White sand, wild surf, and yes, even warm sun: the height of summer is prime time to explore Oregon's beloved, rugged, completely public cost. These superlative beaches top our list:

Stonefield Beach in Yachats

"It’s easy to miss this pocket beach a jig south of Yachats’s tied-arch bridge over Tenmile Creek. But nab one of the few parking spots at tiny Stonefield Beach State Recreation Site and your beach towel snap might come with the extra satisfaction of having this secluded driftwood-and pebble-ringed beach to yourself. Time it right, and not even the hum of Highway 101 traffic, surprisingly well muffled by a thick fringe of salal, will intrude on a late afternoon of beach reading alchemized by a glorious champagne sunset."

5 Idyllic Destinations

Yachats

"A beach trail wends right below the private balconies at Yachats’s cozy Fireside Motel. (Do spring for an ocean-view room.) A mile south on the town’s main drag, the fare at quirky Yachats Brewing and Farmstore is next-level homestead: beer-brined chops, tangy sourdough, house-fermented veg. If romance is the plan, consider extending your trip south of Yachats at Heceta Head Lighthouse—the historic light keeper’s house now operates as a bed-and-breakfast."
