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.

It's a workout, but definitely worth it to climb up the dunes and explore a bit up top. This is my favorite view in all of Oregon, with the sandstone and haystack out in the distance, and beach as far as the eye can see. The brewery at the trailhead is a nice touch, too.

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

This place is amazing with incredible views throughout the entire trail. Tonight along the beach walk to the south of Cape Kiwanda was many "by-the-wind-sailors" or Velella velella's

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