“Heceta Head Lighthouse is Closed for Renovations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This lighthouse is one of my favorite views in the world. I can't wait to see it after it is renovated. It was very deserving. Call to check before going. Still a wonderful beach and area.

“Spectacular Vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

A trip to the Oregon Coast just north of Florence needs to be on your itinerary if your looking for great vistas, pounding surf, and views that shift with each passing mile. Be sure to stop and take advantage of some of the great beaches to get a first-hand look at the Pacific

We were so glad we had wonderful memories from a previous visit. the light house was covered; we didn't walk up to it. The surrounding area is lovely and dramatic.

“Crazy windy, excellent tidepools, cool house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Very, very hard wind by house. House closes at 4pm, watch out. Go to tidepools at low tide, excellent! See the seal pups and all the frolicking!
