Welcome to Little Whale Cove

Little Whale Cove is an Oregon Planned-Unit-Development of 268 home-sites on 140 acres in Depoe Bay, with approximately 700 residents. Our residents are an eclectic mix of families and retirees from varied geographic and cultural backgrounds, who enjoy a relaxed but active lifestyle. We live in a forest, where it meets the ocean, high atop volcanic cliffs, along the beautiful Central Oregon Coast.

  • There’s a rich history, dynamic ecology and diversity of flora and fauna

  • An active and involved membership offers ample opportunity to make friends, join a social club, volunteer, take a class or enjoy barbecues, seasonal pot-lucks and holiday parties.

  • Or you can hibernate and work on your project all winter long.
