Yaquina Head Lighthouse from Cobble Beach #545

Yaquina Head Lighthouse from Cobble Beach, Oregon Coast - beach, lighthouse, oregon coast artwork by Emily Miller
Yaquina Head Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon, with a 93ft. tower and a light that can be seen 19 miles out to sea. It was built in 1873 and continues to operate today. It is located on a high, exposed cliff near Newport, on Oregon's central coast.

The lighthouse is part of the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, a federal reserve that is home to an incredible array of wildlife and beautiful coastline. The site has been popular with visitors since the 1930s, when nearly 12,000 visitors made it the 4th most visited lighthouse in the United States. Today it receives over 400,000 visitors per year.

A vein of magnetized iron runs through the bedrock of Yaquina Head, causing ships' compasses to malfunction if they venture too near.
