We love this lighthouse and it did not fail us again! Gorgeous sunset viewing, we saw lot of sea birds, including two bald eagles. Cobblestone beach was beautiful and looking through the tide pools is always fun

The Yaquina Bay Lighthouse area has great views of the Newport Bay bridge. There is beach access. The lighthouse is open only certain days for short hours. Really cool to go inside.

It says open daily on their web site but it would be hard to believe that it is open in Christmas. It appears it would be open during the rest of break.
