When you get to visit the place of Newport, Oregon, you are sure to see the Yaquina Head Lighthouse as one of its amazing tourist attractions. This is also a part of the place’s Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area that is handled and managed by the Bureau of Land Management. You can visit the lighthouse even when you are on a self-guided tour, ideally during the warm months of the year. You may also head to the Yaquina Head Interpretive Center where you can watch a film that tells of the history of the lighthouse. You would also be educated with how its Fresnel lens works.

This beacon is the tallest lighthouse you can find in Oregon. It also went through the most recent restoration which was finished by June of 2006. This lighthouse is situated right on the State Recreation Site of Yaquina. You can take some private tours in the lighthouse for as long as you would schedule for an appointment in advance. Apart from the lighthouse in the recreation site, you can also get to visit the rest of its nearby attractions like the walking trails and the access to the beach guided with the interpretative tours.

At present, this historical lighthouse welcomes about 350 visitors every day and it is known to be one of the most popular tourist spots right along the Pacific Coast Highway. This road is truly one of the heaviest you can find in the state. The lighthouse is also included in the National Historic Register list.
