Oregon Coast

The Oregon Coast reveals a dramatic, ever-changing world. Mist covers the cliffs one day and crisp sunshine illuminates gleaming sand beaches the next. Outdoor beach romps invigorate both the body and the soul. Taste the briny salt air, feel the tingling sea spray, see the swirling skyscapes and hear the high pitched seagull cries above the pounding surf.

Spectacular scenic viewpoints all along the highway invite picnicking, storm watching, whale watching and photography. Enjoy easy beach access for beachcombing, kite flying and a variety of ocean sports including surfing and windsurfing. Just off the North Jetty in Florence is Oregon's first official scuba dive park.
