Waldport is located between Seal Rock, 5 miles to the north, and
Yachats, 8.5 miles to the south. Miles
of sandy ocean beaches, forest roads, hiking trails, wilderness areas and
picturesque Alsea Bay, make Waldport a desirable destination for visitors to
the Oregon coast. If you enjoy windsurfing, kayaking, boating, fishing,
sailing, hiking or cycling, or if you like to play, walk or run on the beach,
Waldport is the place to visit. Waldport has a family friendly golf
course, a Skateboard Park, gift shops
and antique stores - there is something
for everyone in your family.
Bayshore, located at the north end of the Waldport bridge, is bordered
by the Pacific Ocean on the west, the Alsea River on the south and the Alsea
Bay on the east.
Bayshore has many easy public beach access points to 7 miles
of flat, white, sandy beach, where whales and seals can frequently be seen and
beach treasures can be discovered. From Memorial Day in May through Labor Day
in September, for a small fee, you can enjoy Bayshore Beach Club outdoor heated
pool privileges if you are staying in a vacation rental owned by a Bayshore
Beach Club member.
The Alsea Bay is one of the state's most popular waterways; used by family vacationers and adventurous sportsmen for fishing, crabbing, clamming, and as a gateway to the great Pacific Ocean and deep sea fishing. The Alsea Bay Interpretive Center in downtown Waldport, at the south end of the Alsea Bay Bridge, provides visitors with fascinating historical information about local Native Americans, the Alsea Bridge and other area landmarks, and the evolution of transportation methods on the Oregon coast.
