Beach Profiles - Newport littoral cell

The Newport littoral cell extends from Cape Perpetua in the south to Yaquina Head in the north.  The entire shore may be further subdivided into four subcells known as Yachats, Bayshore (Alsea Spit), Southbeach, and Newport.  Within this cell, the most concentrated area of coastal development occurs along the Newport sub-cell and in Southbeach.  Intense development is also occurring in the south adjacent to the town of Yachats.
