Southshore is located just a little more than a mile south of the Yaquina Bay Bridge, directly off Highway 101.
The Southshore development was approved by the City of Newport, Oregon in June of 1993. Originally designed as an oceanfront village, to include residences, lodging and shops, the development sits on 93 acres of oceanfront dunes, uplands and wetlands. It is immediately adjacent to the South Beach State Park to the north and Highway 101 to the east. It is designated as a high density, multi-family residential community.
