Heceta Head Lighthouse, Florence

Must see · Lighthouse · Tourist Spot
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.

  • One of my favorite beaches to take out of state friends and family to! An easy hike to the lighthouse provides out-of-this-world views of the gorgeous Oregon Coast.  more »
  • Great destination we hiked from the Hobbit trail, about a 6 mile loop. Amazing views. The county keepers house is a bed-and-breakfast but it’s closed right now that looks like a great place to stay.  more »
