Oceanfront Beauty

Set between breathtaking coastal cliffs and lush native forests in a park-like setting, Sea Crest is a gated oceanfront community consisting of 68 lots, which currently includes 36 homes. It is located in Otter Rock, just north of the Inn at Otter Crest, between Depoe bay and Newport on the central Oregon coast.

A newly developed roadside trail leads to the 1937 Lookout Observatory & Gift Shop at the Otter Crest State Wayside. This historic viewpoint is a great location for watching gray whales as they migrate.

Otter Rock Marine Reserve

Otter Rock, Central Oregon Coast

oystercatcher The marine reserves are areas of Oregon’s coastal waters dedicated to conservation and scientific research. The Otter Rock reserve can be accessed through Devil’s Punchbowl State Park and the north end of Beverly Beach. Visitors can explore tidepools, view seals and sea lions hauled out onto the rocks, or stroll along the beautiful beach at Beverly Beach State Park. This area is home to numerous seabird nesting sites, providing great bird watching.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) oversees five marine reserves (Cape Falcon, Cascade Head, Otter Rock, Cape Perpetua, and Redfish Rocks) where scientists can study and learn how to best maintain our state waters for future generations. Each of these is named after the nearest major geological feature.
All removal of sea life is prohibited here, as is ocean development.
