Heceta Head Lighthouse, Florence

Lighthouse · Tourist Spot
Create an itinerary including Heceta Head Lighthouse
Projecting the strongest light on the Oregon coast, Heceta Head Lighthouse is part of a state park. Perched on a small peninsula with boulders that act as natural wave breakers, the lighthouse is a beacon for many seafarers. From the building's deck, you can see land that is thick with fir trees, making a striking contrast with the deep blue water. Tours begin on the first floor of the keeper's quarters and end on the deck of the lighthouse. Tours are free, donations are welcome, and parking requires a per-vehicle fee. Consider taking an extra day to tour the area so you can stay a night at the inn inside the keeper's quarters. Take a look at our Florence tour itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Heceta Head Lighthouse and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
