Lincoln City is nestled between seven miles of sandy beaches and
a 680 acre scenic lake on the central Oregon Coast. And while
it's a charming resort town, it's also a paradise of
beauty, history and adventure.
The mighty Pacific Ocean greets the beach along seven gorgeous miles
in Lincoln City. The beauty and activities along the seashore
change with the seasons, adding spice and variety. There are excellent
locations for wave, whale, sunset and storm watching, and the
beach is a treasure trove for collecting driftwood, agates, shells
and floats. Large rocks emerging from the sea create perfect pockets
for tide pooling during low tides, and beach hiking, surfing,
windsurfing and fishing challenge adventure seekers. Fifteen public
beach accesses welcome those who wish to indulge!
Devils Lake, deep only in terms of historic folklore, is 1/3 mile
wide, 3 miles long, and reaches a depth of only 22 feet. Nine
species of freshwater fish beckon the fisherman, while water sports
such as windsurfing, water skiing, knee-boarding and jet skiing
engage other sports enthusiasts. Flowing from Devils Lake is the
"D" River, which holds the title of the "World's
Shortest River". From its source at Devils Lake, the river
reaches its destination of the Pacific in a mere 120 feet.
Fly your own kite or watch the spectacular aerial displays of
color and shape at the D River Wayside. Voted the "Kite Capital
of the World", Lincoln City receives steady winds because
of the unique location on the 45th parallel. Or, try the local
golf courses for a smorgasbord of birdies, bogies and eagles.
For the weather enthusiast, one of the greatest Lincoln City thrills
without the chills is watching a feisty coastal storm from a cozy
perch. Turbulent seas and howling winds set the sand and your
imagination swirling as you peer into the eye of the storm. Storm
watching is best during the winter months.
Art galleries, factory outlets, books, antiques, boutiques, and
assorted unique items! Where to begin may be your toughest decision.
