We visited the Heceta Head Lighthouse while in Florence. It's beautiful and has so much history. We took one of their daily tours and it was so informative. We went to take pictures of a beautiful lighthouse and left understanding what's so special about it. Be sure to climb the hill above the lighthouse if you want a great picture... More

Went on a sunny, warm summer day. Beautiful, breathtaking views! The lighthouse is a ways up the trail so it is a bit of a hike, up hill to get there, but so peaceful and beautiful once there!

Not a big area so I'm sure it fills fast with nice weather. But on the day we went it was storming quite a bit off and on so the half-dozen others there made it pretty much empty. The beach is kind of in a cove where a creek meets the river. The hike to lighthouse is a moderate climb... More

Beautiful views of the coast, wonderful historic restoration. Pleasant walk up to the lighthouse, knowledgeable guides. Worth the time to walk up the trail behind the lighthouse for view of ocean from behind building.

Beautifully kept classic lighthouse (still in use) on the Oregon Coast. A short walk to a lovely small beach, and an impressive bridge on the Oregon Coast Highway

The Heceta Head Lighthouse are is a beautiful place. Depending on your preference, there is a beach you can park at with a hike up to the lighthouse, or just to the north there is another parking lot that will take you above the lighthouse and back down to it. Both hikes are worth it. The beach is nice and... More

So scenic, and a beautiful lighthouse! I was a little disappointed that we could go up the tower, but there was a short tour and the hike to the lighthouse is so beautiful. Definitely worth the trip!

We just drove up to the lighthouse, and the view from the highway on a cloudy rainy day was still somewhat impressive.
