Yaquina Head is a narrow, coastal headland extending one mile into the Pacific Ocean. The hard basalt cliffs and coves have endured the pounding ocean surf for 14 million years. Abundant wildlife such as whales, harbor seals and seabirds can be viewed from the many breath taking vantage points around the 100-acre site, Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area.
