A person hiking in the Oregon outdoors.Sometimes the best way to recharge your batteries is by unplugging and escaping to the Great Outdoors. The Pacific Northwest is known for its incredible natural beauty, and Newport is no exception. For travelers who book their stay at The Embarcadero Resort, there are countless things to do that’ll have you exploring Oregon outdoors. 

3 Things to Do Outside in Newport

Newport is home to a wide variety of activities, and that includes things to do outdoors. With such an assortment of adventures, there won’t be trouble finding ways to fill your days.

Fishing and Crabbing

One of the most popular outdoor activities involves seeing what you can catch. See how the delicious seafood at restaurants is caught by going crabbing. You can rent a crab boat from our marina to captain your own adventure or go on a guided charter with Yaquina Bay Charters. This local business also offers incredible fishing charters. Another option for fishing is surf fishing. No matter which fishing excursion you choose, be sure to check and see if you need to purchase a license.

Whale Watching

Depending on when you’re visiting, one of the top outdoor activities is whale watching. There are two peak seasons and plenty of ways to spot the majestic creatures. Head to Yaquina Head or Cape Perpetua State Scenic Area to see if you can catch a glimpse of a whale. However, reserve your spot on a guided excursion with Marine Discovery Tour or Newport Tradewinds to increase your chances. 

Hiking Trails

You don’t have to leave dry land to have fun. There are several incredible hiking trails found close to our Newport resort. If visiting with younger children, enjoy the quick and easy 0.4-mile Yaquina Head Lighthouse and Cobble Beach Loop Trail. For a longer option, try the Forest Park Trail, a 2-mile out-and-back path.
