And Waldport, Oregon, Attractions

Waldport and Yachats, Oregon, attractions include several of the hottest spots on the Central Oregon Coast, and no trip to the coast is complete until you see them. In fact, much of the appeal surrounding these towns comes from the phenomenal naturally occurring attractions and geographic wonders. Perhaps most popular of them is the Waldport, Oregon, attraction, Cape Perpetua Scenic Area. This, the highest point on the coast, is well loved for a reason. From mesmerizing overlooks to hiking trails and the jagged, volcanic outcrops and rocky shoreline, Cape Perpetua attracts visitors from all around. The cape itself stretches over 40 miles of Oregon’s coastline, beginning in Waldport and continuing south (it’s that scenic drive you’ve been admiring along Oregon Highway 101). Near the scenic area is also the Waldport, Oregon, attraction, Cleft of the Rock lighthouse, a mysterious place on a nearby bluff. It’s only visible from the highway, and it used to be a private navigation base for the U.S. Coast Guard. And the aptly named Thor’s Well and Devil’s Churn are two Waldport and Yachats, Oregon, attractions that really do inspire a sense of metaphysical power.
