The views were stunning and it was a nice hike down to the visitors center. Lazy tip: have someone drive you to the top and then hike down. The old growth is amazing. Devils Churn was ok, but my experience might have been limited by...More

Wow, more coastal Pacific beauty at its finest. Stopped at Strawberry hill beach and was awestruck by the beauty and power of the Pacific. Found our way to the rocky beach and found ourselves combing for driftwood and rocks aplenty. Was windy and rainy when...More

We spent the morning at Cape Perpetua going through the tide pools and watching Thors well and the spouting Horn. The visitor center is well done with very good educational exhibits and the beautiful picture window with which to view the ocean and spouting Horn....More

I suppose "best" view is a matter of personal choice, but it you are near Perpetua and you fail to check it out, you are missing a spectacular spot. From 800 feet above the Pacific you will think you can see all the way to...More

Cape Perpetua is absolutely stunning and the hikes from the parking lot are worth the trip. During whale watching season it’s a great viewing area although the Grey Whales hang around most of the year and can be seen at any time. Stop and look...More

When driving out of Yachats, you will pass through the Cape Perpetual scenic area. The entire area is breathtaking. You will want to pull over frequently to enjoy and photograph the amazing sights.

This is a place of wild natural beauty rather than the typical beach crowded with sunbathers. Misty, foggy, craggy, with dramatic terrain and wild surf crashing against the rocky and log strewn sand. Sea spouts, churns, tidal pools, sea creatures, all to explore. Hike or...More

Just an incredible stretch of coastline! Don't let a little fog stop you. Really adds to the drama of the coast.

Beautiful coastal area to visit. Take hiking boots or shoes with a very sturdy sole or the volcanic rock will bruise your feet.

And worth the stop if driving thru. There are multiple scenic trails and great points of interest including a blow hole, the Devils churn, etc. You'll want to have sturdy shoes and a sense of adventure to explore around for a while. Just be prepared...More

Hi, Jodi. It really depends on the time you usually spend getting to feel the beauty of a place. I would say three hours as minimum time (if you are the type that does museums in less than an hour). In my opinion, even if... More
