Cape Kiwanda is part of the Three Capes Scenic Route (along with Cape Meares and Cape Lookout). Kiwanda is the smallest of the three, but it�s one of the best places to experience spectacular wave action. Pacific City is the home of the Pacific Dory Fleet. South of Cape Kiwanda is the dory boat launching area. North of Cape Kiwanda to Tierra Del Mar is a stretch of beach popular with picnickers. Kiwanda provides great hang gliding and kite flying opportunities.

Great area to spend the day at with tide pools and the trek up the sand dunes for amazing views. Lots of disrespectful people who don't obey signs, having park rangers run back and forth all day telling people to get behind the fence. If you go, just be mindful of that and don't ruin for the rest of us by just "wanting to get that picture". There are plenty of other places that aren't danger zones

Did this with my daughter. Haha. Fun going up. A good workout!

Beautiful! Many different terrains. Once up the main "dune," the difficulty drops. Bring the camera/phone and maybe a picnic, so picturesque.

This will get your heart rate up. Okay, says it is only a mile. But we are also talking STRAIGHT up pure SAND. This is just a giant sand dune in PC.
