Do you know what two of the best-kept secrets are on the Oregon Coast? November and December!
The crowds are gone, the weather is often beautiful (with an occasional beach storm that so many of us love) and you will feel as though you have the beach to yourself. We have put together some of our favorite places to go, things to do and of course some of the best Oregon Coast vacation rentals to help you plan your perfect trip.
Tucked between two state parks along a breathtaking seven miles of coastline, Manzanita has something for everyone. Outdoor recreation opportunities abound – hiking, biking, kayaking, surfing, golfing – and for those in search of more urban pursuits, Laneda Avenue is full of great restaurants, bars, wineries, and shops. Consider a stay at Greenridge House MCA 824, Laneda Lodge MCA 1339, or Sitka Retreat.
Just south of Manzanita is the lesser-travelled seaside community of Rockaway. This town’s connections to the local fishing and crabbing communities are still strong, even as it has added more shops, restaurants, and a beloved local bakery. Drink in those beautiful Twin Rocks views while you enjoy some of our local favorites (we listed even more favorites on a recent blog post):
Famous for its Haystack Rock views and Dory Boats, Pacific City remains a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike. Hike the dune at Cape Kiwanda, gather round a beach campfire for epic sunsets or have some tasty food and drink (with your feet in the sand!) at Pelican Brewing’s oceanfront pub. All this fun is a short stroll easy from our Oregon Coast vacation rentals Makena’s Haven, The Undertow, or Wave Catchers.
Facing a beautiful northern headland, Roads End Beach sits at the northernmost point of Lincoln City and feels like a completely separate beach village. Offering stunning headlands views, beautiful hikes, perfect kite-flying and beach-combing conditions and famous sunsets, Roads End is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Book an unforgettable stay at Sand Dollar, Haven Found, or Mill House.
A trip to this beloved little beach town puts you in striking distance of some of the Oregon Coast’s most breathtaking views, including Cape Perpetua, Yaquina Head Light House/Cobble Beach and Thor’s Well. Add in a charming main street area with weekly famer’s market, Green Salmon Coffee and award-winning Yachats Brewing and you have everything you need for a perfect getaway. Book a stay at Optiaqua, Guinevere’s Cottage or Urbanski House.
