Newport, Oregon which sits at the mouth of the Yaquina River, has two lighthouses. Yaquina Head Lighthouse is on the north side of the opening for Newport Bay and Yaquina Bay Lighthouse is on the south side.
Yaquina Head is a prominant headland projecting a little more than a kilometer into the Pacific. The full name of this beautiful place is 'Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area', the hightlight, of course, being the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, also known as Cape Foulweather Lighthouse. It took approximately one year, and over 370,000 bricks from San Francisco, to construct Yaquina Head Light, Oregons tallest lighthouse, which stands at an impressive 93 feet, with 110 steps for the determined visitor to conquer.
The lighthouse emits its own unique lighting pattern, 2 seconds on, 2 seconds off, 2 seconds on, 14 seconds off, 24 hours a day.
In 2002 Yaquina Head Light was used as the setting for the "Moesko Island Lighthouse" in the scary film 'The Ring'. It also appeared in 'Dead Man's Curve' (1998), 'Hysterical' (1983) and Nancy Drew: 'Pirates Cove' (1977).
