About the Newport Sandy Shore

Here identified as the Newport littoral cell, this sandy 27 mile segment of Oregon's coastal shoreline extends from mileage Yaquina Head to Cape Perpetua. It is associated with the Yaquina, Alsea and Yachats rivers mouth(s) and accompanying Yaquina and Alsea Bay Estuaries.

The Newport sandy shore lies within Lincoln County and makes up the shoreline fronting the communities of Newport, Waldport and Yachats. It consists of Dune Backed, Inlet Affected and Bluff Backed shoreline. Of this shoreline approximately 44.4% is urban and 25.2% is park. An unknown percentage of this stretch of sandy shoreline is hardened with shore protection structures. Predominant land uses include those typical of urban, ruralsettings.

Chronic coastal hazards for the Newport sandy shore include ocean flooding and erosion, inlet migration, landsliding and sloughing and sand inundation. Catastrophic hazards include earthquakes, and the groundshaking, subsidence, landsliding, liquefaction, and tsunami that accompany them.

Key recreational facilities and cultural features include: Yaqina Head Outstanding Area and Tide Pools and the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, Seal Rocks, and the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
