The Oregon Coast: Where Headlands Meet The Sea

Three Unique Regions

North Coast

Central Coast

South Coast

Three Unique Regions

Astoria to Lincoln City

North Coast

Distinctive coastlines, historic towns, old folk tales, and thriving, eclectic communities. Where the Columbia River meets the swells of the Pacific Ocean, the North Coast is the convergence of the past and the present, the old and the new.

Lincoln City to Florence

Central Coast

Lighthouses, coastal towns, and roads that hug the ocean. From the beach community of Lincoln City to the adventure-seeker’s dream at Florence, the Central Coast is defined by its relationship with the sea. This is the heart of the Oregon Coast.

Florence to Brookings-Harbor

South Coast

Further out from large population centers, the Southern Coast revels in being off the beaten path. Set out into the wild, where coastal forest trails, stunning sand dunes, and secluded beaches await, anchored by the artistic and animated port of Coos Bay.
