Pristine nature. Jagged ocean cliffs. Vast empty beaches. These are just a few of the things that you can expect when you visit the Oregon Coast.
We’ve made the Oregon coastline trip multiple times, sometimes starting from Portland in the North and sometimes starting from California in the South.
There are State Campgrounds scattered throughout the entire Oregon coastline so if you plan on camping in a tent, campervan, or an RV, these will be the best places to stay at.
The northern section of the coast is one of the most visited regions in Oregon. A few of the must-see locations include Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach and enormous ocean caves at Cape Kiwanda.
Spend some time along Astoria’s riverfront that overlooks Columbia River and stop at Bowpicker Fish & Chips for an order of mouthwatering beer-battered albacore tuna.
The main attraction of this park is an overlook that offers panoramic views of the Cannon Beach coastline and the Terrible Tilly lighthouse which took over 500 days to construct in brutal weather and is now abandoned.
