Heceta Head Lightstation
Heceta Head Lighthouse signals to seafarers from atop a magnificent forested promontory just 14 miles south of Yachats. This working lighthouse, circa 1894, sits 205 ft above the ocean, and its beacon shines 21 miles out to sea, the strongest light on the coast. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. The historic assistant light keeper’s house is a bed and breakfast. The elevation at Heceta Head reaches 1,000 ft. and is a nesting area for seabirds.
Free docent led programs and tours are offered at Heceta Head Lightstation year round, weather and staffing dependent.
