We stopped by the lighthouse while we were in this area to take some pictures. This is a nice place to stop for a visit.

When we left Yachats and headed south, we came upon the famed Heceta Head Lighthouse. You will want to stop and check it out and take some photos. The coast around here is gorgeous.

This is a great place to visit, especially the history behind the building and grounds. There is walking to do, uphill to start. And the beach is below, so bring your bathing suits.

We haven't been to Florence in decades, and I don't think we had ever stopped at Heceta Head. It was a magical experience -- with views of the bridge, stream, beach, shoreline -- but not a very good view of the lighthouse from the wayside....More

Many think this is the prettiest of the Oregon lighthouses, but it isn't the most accessible as it involves an uphill walk that might be difficult for some. If unable to manage the walk, it can still be seen from viewpoints along Highway 101. It...More

There is a parking lot. The exit from Hwy. 101 is well marked. Park in the lot (restrooms and picnic area available) and walk the path up to the lighthouse. Both the lighthouse keeper's house and the actual lighthouse are... More
