Moolack Beach is a sandy, uninterrupted beach on the central Oregon coast that stretches for nearly 5 miles. Beverly Beach and Beverly Beach State Park are at the northern end for those who want to stay overnight in a tent, yurt or RV.  Although Moolack is located between two of the coast’s larger cities, Newport and Lincoln City, it is also bordered by natural and historical places of interest. To the south you will see Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Standing strong at 93 feet, it is Oregon’s tallest lighthouse and part of an outstanding 100-acre Natural Area. North of Moolack Beach and beyond Beverly Beach, Otter Rock and Devils Punch Bowl State Natural Area offer opportunities for whale watching. For those looking to catch a wave, surfers often find favorable conditions just half a mile northwest of the bowl. Grab your binoculars, your board or your kite and enjoy Moolack and its nearby attractions!
