The views are breathtaking. Drive slow and stop at the turn offs. Nice trails all over.

“Unbelievable view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

This may be the best place to view the central Oregon coast. The photography oppertunities are great. If you haven't been here, you owe it to yourself. I'm amazed every time we drive up the coast at the stunning beauty before me and I feel so fortunate.

“An interesting and historical area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Heceta Head Lighthouse, apparently one of the most photographed, is definitely worth a visit, tho' it's hard to find the road access. It comes upon you quite suddenly on the left at a bend as you head south. Heceta Bay is a lovely rest stop, with picnic tables and playground and a creek, plus a wonderful, rocky beach to explore. Great view of the lighthouse, and you can walk up the trail--quite a hike--to the top if you're fit.

Good gift shop. Great location. A little bit of a hike but well worth it.

“One of the best viewpoints on the Oregon Coast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

There is always nostalgia when it comes to lighthouses on the Oregon Coast, but what makes this lighthouse stand out is the setting above a cliff with waves splashing against the rocks below. This is a must see!
