|Oregon Coast Notes|
Pacific City is located just off of Oregon Coast Highway 101 on a small loop that extends west towards the Pacific Ocean.
There are two large rivers, The Big Nestucca and The Little Nestucca that merge to create an estuary and habitat for a variety of species.
You will find beautiful beaches in the shadow of Cape Kiwanda and capped by the southern Haystack Rock just off shore. You might catch a fishing dory on the beach, a beautiful sunset glimmering between the Rock and Cape, or a wild Oregon Coast storm churning onto the beach.
Take a stroll on the beach and enjoy seeing some wildlife. Just a few of the local inhabitants include bald eagles, pelicans, herons, seals, sea lions, otters and porpoises. Pacific City is also a favorite for Oregon Coast whale watchers. Come see the migration of the amazing gray whale in March and May.
The 3 Capes Scenic Drive is one of the most popular and spectacular stretches of scenery on the Oregon Coast if not the entire west coast. Pacific City is the beginning of the 40 mile drive starting with Cape Kiwanda State Park.
