Southern Oregon Coast is a must-see at least once in a life

Oregon is probably one of the prettiest places I’ve seen.  The coastline is covered in cliffs, coves, and rocky structures that protrude from the water creating a mystical view… something you’d only imagine from a Harry Potter or pirate story.

We stayed about 14 miles north of Brookings OR in an old fish hatchery that has been converted into a few different beach home rentals. Arcadia Vacation Homes  The vacation homes overlook the ocean from a clifftop with a private beach that was spectacular!  And if we go to the Southern Oregon Coast again, we will stay here.

Lone Ranch Beach

If you want to see tidepool creatures, this is the best place we found around Brookings to see starfish, sea anemones, crabs, hermit crabs, sea urchins and more!  It is rated well on TripAdvisor.  It is free to park and walk the park, they also have bathrooms, picnic tables, and if you go in the season there are a lot of blackberry bushes growing berries throughout the trails.

Brookings, OR

Brookings feels like the kind of town where everyone knows everyone else.  It’s beautiful driving through the historic areas, and feels a bit remote from the rest of the world.  We visited Brookings during their Southern Oregon Kite Festival and got to see a lot of fun kite flying while there.

Indian Sands

This is a really COOL place to see.  A giant sand dune cascades down the cliffs overlooking the coastline and makes for a lot of fun to climb and explore, and close by are some breathtaking views over rocky arches in the water and miles of ocean.
