Oregon State Parks Expanded The Overlook At Cape Kiwanda In Pacific City, And The Views Are Breathtaking

Cape Kiwanda is one of the most iconic places in Oregon; its hilly dunes and craggy coastline are almost otherworldly. Each year, many people come to see this spectacular natural wonder in person, which can be viewed from a large overlook. Unfortunately, this place of sublime beauty is also one of great tragedy; Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area has seen numerous deaths over the years. In an effort to make this vista safer, Oregon State Parks recently added new fences at Cape Kiwanda, which also provide access to previously off-limits ocean views.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
