Like most lighthouses on the coast the view is outstanding. So is the wind at times. The folks that man the place are knowledgeable and friendly. Only drawback is the light is no longer available.

Go! Short hike, gorgeous views and beach! Lots of sea lions in the water surfing. Quick drive from Florence and close to Sea Lion Cave.

The walk from the parking lot is not for the faint of heart. Don't try to rush, just enjoy the hike and the views as you climb to the top where the lighthouse is located. Once there you will be glad you took the time...More

We spent a couple hours just walking around, taking pictures, enjoying the views, and watching for whales and sea lions. Take some time and relax, and take in the views. We saw several whales out quite a distance, but none-the-less exciting to see. The sound...More

We got there in the afternoon to watch the sunset. It is quite a hike to the lighthouse itself but it offers a really nice view and the sunset is awesome from there.

The Heceta Head Lighthouse offers so much. Beautiful vista, hiking for every level, beach fun, picnicking, gift shop and even if you plan, a B&B on site. Wow!
