Easy paved walkway with great views. Take binoculars to look for whales. The flies were really bad that day, but at least they didn't bite. Federal run park. $7 fee but good for 3 days

I parked outside the park and walked in since there was a long line of cars to pay to get in. Very beautiful site. I walked all the trails in a couple hours. Be prepared for wind and rain since there are no covered areas unless you are on the tour of the lighthouse.

A very pretty area along the Oregon coast. The beaches are nice, and there are usually some sea lions out on the rocks. The lighthouse is also very cool.

My favorite place in the world. I have been here many times. When the tide is high (but not too high) the ocean pulls the rocks and makes sounds like those of a rain maker. The sounds are so beautiful and relaxing. The larger rocks make deeper sounds and the smaller rocks make more of a rain sound. The rocks on the beach are naturally sorted according to size so you can walk along and stop and listen to the different pitches. When the tide is low there are tide pools. I have seen seals and sea lions from this beach. Once during whale season, I saw a whale. The light house is wonderful, I've done the tour in the past. In the spring there are beautiful wildflowers. Just a really wonderful place to be.
