Manzanita is a charming coastal town known for its beautiful sandy beaches, stunning coastal landscapes, and the nearby Neahkahnie Mountain. Located on the northern Oregon coast, visitors can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, great shopping and dining, and breathtaking scenery.  

Here are some tips for exploring Manzanita: 

Beach Activities 

Manzanita boasts a beautiful sandy beach, providing opportunities for beachcombing, kite flying, building sandcastles, and taking leisurely strolls along the shoreline. 

Neahkahnie Mountain 

Hike or drive to the top of Neahkahnie Mountain for breathtaking panoramic views of the majestic Pacific Ocean and the surrounding coastline. There are several hiking trails that lead to the summit. 


Explore the unique shops and boutiques in Manzanita where you can find local art, handmade crafts, and souvenirs. We love grabbing a coffee from News & Espresso and window shopping down Laneda Avenue. A stop at Finnesterre is always a must to peruse their carefully curated selection of home décor, soft goods, jewelry, apothecary, and art. We always pick up a Sea Change Mer Sea sandbag candle – a sweet and clean scent of sea salt, white tea, and driftwood. The perfect Manzanita memory to take home with you! 


Enjoy the local culinary scene by visiting the town’s restaurants and cafes. Make sure to stop by Yolk for breakfast or a leisurely brunch, and if you are looking for the perfect date night spot or celebrating something special, book a table at Neah-Kah-Nie Bistro.  

Outdoor Recreation 

Engage in outdoor activities like hiking, birdwatching, and exploring nearby state parks such as Oswald West State Park and Nehalem Bay State Park. Surfing has also become increasingly popular in Manzanita. Grab your board and head to Short Sands.  

Sips and S’mores 

The Winery at Manzanita welcomes your whole family – pups included – to enjoy their incredible wines, fire pits, a tasting room, and an ocean view. Sit back, relax, and sample their small batch PNW wines. Flights and glasses of wine, beer, and cider are available. They also serve small bites and s’mores!  


Hit the links at Manzanita Links where you can enjoy a nine-hole golf course with stunning ocean views.  

Art and Culture 

Check out local art galleries and cultural events happening in the area. Manzanita has a vibrant arts community. 


Simply enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of the town. Read a book on the beach, take a leisurely stroll through town, book a spa treatment from Spa Manzanita, or unwind with the soothing sounds of the ocean from your charming beach cottage rental.
