Getting There

Cape Arago is a scenic headland jutting into the Pacific Ocean. Long used by native Americans, Cape Arago was first sighted by Europeans during one of Sir Francis Drake's expeditions in the late 1500s. Modern visitors can scan the horizon for migrating whales and other marine mammals, as well as fishing boats and ships entering and leaving nearby Coos Bay. The south cove trail leads down to a sandy beach and superior tidepools where you can visit intertidal plants and animals (but please enjoy them with your eyes only).

Picnic tables, restrooms and a gazebo shelter are available for daytime use.

Gorgeous views! Quite steep on the way down, quite steep on the way back. But that shouldn’t stop you from checking out this beach. Lots of awesome see creatures to see in the tide pools too!
