Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area
A sandstone headland offering one of the best viewpoints on the coast.
You'll experience all of the Pacific NW vibes – soaring sand dunes, towering sea stacks and dramatic ocean cliffs.
From the top of the sand dune, you'll be rewarded with views that are unmatched from anywhere along the Oregon Coast.
Keep your eyes peeled for whales – the Oregon coast is a fantastic place to spot them, especially gray whales!
Low tide will allow you to explore colors and shapes that look straight out of a cartoon. Plants and animals like purple and orange sea stars, fluttering anemones, squishy sea cucumbers and ruffly sea lettuce.
This wide beach is rarely crowded and will allow us the opportunity to rejuvenate.
2,000-year-old stumps from ancient Sitka spruce that spanned impressive heights of 200-feet. Only visible when the tide rolls out, you will be able to meander through these stumps.
A memorable beach picnic lunch.
A small town nestled in the forest and the sweeping hills of the Oregon Coast.

Bonfires right in the sand
There’s nothing like basking in the glow of a sunset bonfire while listening the steady and peaceful palpitating pulse of the sea.
