This uniquely wonderful area combines a diverse mix of commercial activities and attractions with the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean and Yaquina Bay estuary.
Our Oregon Coast Aquarium with its world class exhibits and nearby Oregon State University’s Marine Science Center with their oceanographic and scientific displays are both must sees on your list of activities. The Port of Newport’s South Beach Marina offers ready access to Yaquina Bay. The new boat launch area and expanding RV facilities blend nicely with the fishing pier and picnic areas.
The South Beach State Park is one of Oregon’s largest, extending from the Bay Jetty south to the camping and no fee day use areas. Several trails and the overall flat terrain make South Beach an excellent area to see by bicycle or on foot. All the merchants here want to make your stay fun and memorable. With so much to see and do here, you just might want to stay an extra day or two. Please check out the map and use this brochure to Explore, Play & Stay in South Beach.
