The Oregon Coast - A unique destination to explore.
Astounding vistas, rocky headlands, craggy rocks, rivers, forests, coastal dunes and miles of spectacular Pacific Coast shoreline await you on the Oregon Coast. From the picturesque town of Astoria to the little village of Yachats, the Oregon Coast takes you through bustling resort towns with carousels and quiet villages with old time ice cream parlors, all set on a wild and scenic coastline. Outdoor and nature enthusiasts are welcomed by 70 State Parks, the Oregon Dunes and some of the most diverse marine life in the world. Sit back and watch whales breaching along endless stretches of beach. If not storm-watching, find a quiet protected spot to sip sundowners with a brilliant sunset.
Home to the Historic Dory Fishing fleet, one of the most unique fleets in the world, Pacific City is a destination that offers something for everyone. A boater’s paradise and fisherman’s delight as you watch the dories launch through the breakers and experience some of Oregon’s best river and ocean fishing. Looking for a destination with great outdoor activities, Pacific City and the Nestucca Valley is the best. Kayaking, bicycling, trail hiking, bird watching, crabbing, fishing, surfing, kiteboarding and kite flying. Explore the rolling sand dunes on an ATV and take a sand board for hours of great fun.
Sunsets over Cape Kiwanda
The beautiful beaches of Pacific City sit in the shadow of Cape Kiwanda with breathtaking views of Pacific City’s Haystack Rock. Cape Kiwanda is the smallest of the three that make up the Three Capes Scenic Route. There is no better place to watch the whales breaching or go hand gliding. Storm watch as the storms roll in, beachcomb the sands for hermit crabs, sand dollars and treasure, build a sandcastle and explore the tidal pools. End your day with a spectacular sunset as the sun sinks down behind Haystack Rock.
After a day in nature, Pacific City has many fun and eclectic shops to browse, with unique gift shops and galleries showcasing local artisans. When it’s time to dine, Pacific City has dining to suite every taste bud and budget.
