Neskowin , which means "Land of Many Fishes," is a quaint seaside village located on the northern Oregon coast. Located in the southern part of Tillamook County along the Pacific Ocean and tucked in the north side of Cascade Head, Neskowin is small and quiet with a wide sandy beach and a meandering creek that makes it perfect for families or a romantic getaway for two. The town started as a dairy farming community in the late 1800s and by the 1920s it had evolved into the beach community that it is today. It is considered the last town within the northern Oregon coast and its most defining landmark is Proposal Rock, a large basalt seastack that is covered with vegetation and sits right at the tide zone. Fishing is very popular in the area where the ocean and many creeks and rivers provide a variety of fish, including steelhead, trout, chinook, bass, halibut, flounder and silverside salmon. Hiking, biking, beachcombing, golf and picnicking are just a few of the other outdoor pursuits in the area. You will find a variety of shops and businesses in Neskowin and there is a very good café in town that is popular with both locals and visitors. Internationally known artist, Michael Schlicting operates his studio-gallery in a renovated 1922 schoolhouse that is open seven days a week (11-5 during the summer months and on weekends in the spring and fall.) Neskowin is a very quiet, tranquil destination that is perfect for long walks on the beach and just enjoying the awe inspiring beauty of the southern Oregon coast.

Neskowin Weather & Climate

The Pacific Ocean is the single most influencing factor on the climate along the central coast of Oregon. Because of the normal movement of air masses from west to east, most of the systems moving across Oregon have been extensively modified while traveling over the ocean, or they dissipate completely before reaching dry land. This also keeps temperatures at a moderate level all year long. However, the unlimited supply of moisture available to those air masses is largely responsible for the abundant rainfall over western Oregon and in the higher elevations. Also, beginning near and following the coastline, is the Coast Range Mountains, which also exerts an important influence on the climate. This range forces the air to rise as it moves eastward and the resulting cooling and condisation produces some of the heaviest annual rainfalls in the U.S. along the higher western slopes.
