Soaring more than 93 feet in height, this is the tallest lighthouse on the Oregon coast. Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area is located on a narrow point of land jutting due west into the ocean at the north end of Newport. This headland provides visitors with one of the most accessible wildlife and ocean viewing locations on the coast. The park grounds are open every day of the year. The entrance gate opens at sunrise or 6:00 AM, whichever is later, and closes at sunset.
