Around Florence

  Heceta Head Lighthouse – Great place to spend the day, playing on the beach (lots of driftwood), and hike out to the lighthouse, dramatically situated on a high point. Tours of the lighthouse are available daily, 11 - 3pm. Trail to the lighthouse is 1 mile round trip.
  Sea Lion Caves – Visit a gigantic sea cave, chock full of Stellar sea lions barking and lolling on the rocks (typically about 200 sea lions). Hold your nose, the cavern smells very fishy, in fact it stinks. From the viewing decks above, watch sea lions swimming in the water, and look for gray whales. Sea Lion Caves are 11 miles north of Florence on the coast highway.
    Tip: This is worth a visit if you haven't seen sea lions or seals on the Oregon coast (for free), e.g. Simpson Reef, Cape Arago, or Coquille Point in Bandon.
    Oregon Dunes Recreation Area – Oregon Dunes Recreation Area extends from Florence to Coos Bay. Honeyman State Park is 3 miles south of Florence.
