Beachcombing for Agates

Would you like some great tips from our local agate clubs? Open the links below or stop by the Yachats Visitors Center to pick up the club’s Beachcombing in Lincoln County flyer (also linked below).

Note: Plan your trip. Pick up a tide table from the Visitors Center or click here. Low tide after a big storm in winter is the best time to search for agates. Be prepared for changeable weather (bring rain gear!) and know beach safety.

In January there is a fabulous annual event, The Yachats Agate Festival, that offers beautiful displays, vendors, and learning opportunities about gems, minerals, and fossils. Mark your calendar – you don’t want to miss this!
