      Heceta Head Lighthouse is one of the most photograped sites on the Oregon coast and little wonder. Its location, 205 feet above the crashing Pacific, is picture postcard pretty. Stop at the parking lot on Highway 101 and follow the short trail (half a mile) to the lighthouse and then up the steps tho the viewing point. The adjacent Lighthouse Keeper's House serves as an interpretive center by day and is available as a Bed and Breakfast by night.

      If you go:
      Tours are available daily from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm May to Sept; limited hours are operated during March, April and Oct.
