ACTIVITIES ~ ATTRACTIONS
Be adventurous! Try all the different types of activities Charleston has to offer, from dune bugging to fishing or hiking. There is something for everyone!
The harbor is the heart of this community and serves as a home port to a large commercial fishing fleet. You’ll find a bustling marina serving charter boat operators, sports fishermen, crabbers and recreational boaters. The harbor area includes restaurants, tackle shops, fresh seafood, and specialty gift shops. Unique seafood restaurants will appease any palette. You can choose from the Portside Restaurant, serving arguably the best fish and chips around from catch of the day for the fresh fish or the Miller's at the Cove Pub for their amazing freshly made sourdough hamburgers.
The Monkey Business located on the docks is well known to be serve the best clam chowder around. If you’d like a more authentic experience, stop by Chuck Seafood right on the main road for fresh fish and seafood!
We are surrounded by both mountains and beaches which makes it twice the fun!!!
There is also a golf course just a few miles away at Sunset Bay.

On the Docks : 5 mins walking distance
When you ask the locals here on the South Oregon Coast for recommendations on popular outdoor adventures, many of them will tell you to go clamming.
The low tides commonly found from Empire to Charleston make our region ideal for clam digging which could result in a tasty treat whether served in chowder, steamed or fried.
Check the handy dandy tide book, and see when the lowest tide is.
