we sat at the viewpoint to watch and listen. Spotted a whale that we watched for quite a while. Walked down the trail and watched the seals play in the surf. Also watched birds play along the coast. Relaxing afternoon. Please take time to see when in the area!

It was wonderful seeing all of the sea life basking in the sun through the binoculars. What a wonderful piece of coastline that is away from the bustle of Hwy 101. I would highly recommend taking the time to see Cape Arago.

Just before the sunset, a very few people but one of them let us show a whale, for the first time in our life. Worth of the money we spent to get the Oregon Coast!

Go to the end of the road. Walk toward the sound of sea lions barking, there is a short trail and there are picnic tables out of the wind with a perfect sunset view. If you go to the end of the short trail you can see the sea lion island... Must be hundreds of them.

My husband & I drove over from Bandon to check out the park and go tide pooling. There are two hikes at Cape Arago, one to the north where you can walk down and see the rocks w/ the sea lions and seals and another to the south where there is supposedly better tide pooling. Both trails were somewhat steep... More

We drove here after breakfasting at our B&B, it was a beautiful day, great scenery, wonderful spot. There were lots of picture worthy places, the way you'd like the Oregon coast to be, not with the rain that is often part of the package.
