In Oregon, the beach is not for laying out, though it’s a delightful place to do so. Instead, Oregon natives and intrepid visitors choose to enjoy water sports or explore the trails that radiate off the water, every inch of the coast open to the public. The whole coast is free and protected, 363 miles of it available to anyone looking to enjoy it. Among the highlights of the coast is Oswald West State Park, where trails snake through old-growth forest and open out onto Smugglers Cove or Short Sand Beach, a popular surfing spot. Cape Blanco, the furthest point west, offers more trails and a glorious view from its picturesque lighthouse. Cape Kiwana is ideal for surfers or kite flyers as well as anyone willing to climb to the top of its dunes for a panoramic view. We have compiled a list of rooms with a view, except for our Glampers the room is a yurt and the view is Oregon’s spectacular coast.
