Yachats is a small coastal city whose name comes from the Siletz language and means `dark water at the foot of the mountain`. Much of the town`s coastline is dominated by black basalt rock, the result of lava flows some 50 million years ago. Hazy Cascade Mountain horizons, surging ocean waters, and tide pools sunk in black basalt on the shoreline make the name altogether appropriate. Instead of sandy beaches, much of the coastline near Yachats is composed of rugged black basalt that produces surging sea landmarks like Devil`s Churn, Spouting Horn, and Thor`s Well. The city is a magical place for a peaceful retreat, outdoor adventure, inspiration, and romance.
